Monster Magnet Announce New Album Cobras and Fire (The Mastermind Redux): Dave Wyndorf and co. give details on upcoming reissue and debut new track Mastermind ’69.
Earlier this year when I interviewed Monster Magnet frontman Dave Wyndorf (click here to read the full interview) he mentioned an upcoming “re-imagining” of their 2010 album Mastermind.
And today band label Napalm Records announced the official title and release date. The disc, entitled Cobras and Fire (The Mastermind Redux), will hit record stores and online outlets on October 9th.
To mark the announcement, the band debuted the track Mastermind ’69 on Brooklyn Vegan

The remix of the original title track amps up the psychedelia and grooviness, in the same way that 2014’s Milking The Stars reinterpreted 2013 album Last Patrol in equally trippy, cosmic fashion.
When I spoke to Wyndorf in January, he discussed the concept for the band’s alternate take on Mastermind
Wyndorf goes into more detail on Cobras and Fire with the official press release posted on Blabbermouth.
Having thoroughly enjoyed Milking The Stars, I expect Cobras and Fire to rock in weird and wonderful ways, and likely more satisfying than the original release.
