Michael Monroe will be releasing a new studio album titled Blackout States on October 16, 2015 via Spinefarm Records. This 13-track outing was produced by Chips Kiesbye (Hellacopters, Nomads) in Gothenburg, Sweden, and mixed by Petri Majuri in Helsinki, Finland.

With Blackout States, Monroe’s current touring and recording outfit, comprised of bassist Sami Yaffa (ex-Hanoi Rocks/New York Dolls), guitarist Steve Conte (ex-New York Dolls/Company of Wolves), guitarist Rich Jones (ex-Black Halos/Amen), and drummer Karl Rockfist (ex-Chelsea Smiles/Danzig), provided strong creative support for a groundbreaking artist whose reputation continues to flourish. Many of rock’s most noted performers, including Dave Grohl and Slash, have cited Monroe’s unwavering drive and three-decade-plus career as a genuine source of inspiration.

Veteran Finnish hard rocker Michael Monroe is working on a new album to be released in Autumn 2015 via Spinefarm/Universal. Recording will continue until mid-March and the first single is due out this spring.

Says Monroe,

“Once again, it’s time for a new Michael Monroe album! We are happy to have recently renewed our deal with Universal Music/Spinefarm and have written a bunch of new songs for the album over the past couple of months. The album is being produced by Swedish producer Chips Kiesbye (Hellacopters, Sator, Nomads) and we started recording it at the end of February in Gothenburg, Sweden. We’re all really excited about the new project. This is guaranteed to become another brilliant new Michael Monroe album!”
