Biography

Formed in Red Bank, New Jersey in 1989 by former Shrapnel singer and
guitarist Dave Wyndorf with singer Tim Cronin, guitarist John McBain, bassist
Joe Callandra and drummer Jon Kleiman, Monster Magnet fused heavy metal, hard
rock and psychedelia in powerful performances in concert and on record. They
released their first album Spine of God in 1993 with a single “Medicine”
supported by a tour with the band Soundgarden. McBain left to be replaced by Ed
Mundell for the 1993 release Superjudge. Dopes to Infinity (1995)
had the single “Negasonic Teenage Warhead” but poor sales resulted in
hiatus until 1998 with the hard rock album Powertrip. With Phil Caivano
in as bass player, the band had the single “Space Lord”, a Number 3 hit
on the Mainstream Rock chart that boosted their exposure. God Says No
followed in 2001, Monolithic Baby! in 2004 and 4-Way Diablo in
2007. Their 2010 release, Mastermind, reached Number 14 on the Billboard
Hard Rock Albums Chart and Last Patrol went to Number 17 in 2013.
Several of the band's tracks have been featured in films such as The Matrix,
The Girl Next Door, Heavy Metal 2000, and Talladega Nights:
The Ballad of Ricky Bobby
, video games including Motor Storm and Road
Rash
and television shows such as Sons of Anarchy and The Shield.
In 2018 they announced a tour of the UK and Europe to accompany their latest
album Mindf**ker which they released at the beginning of the year and
reached Number 9 on the Independent Album chart. It was a three-year break
before the 2021 album A Better Dystopia
