John Garcia's revealed the details of his upcoming acoustic album, 'The Coyote Who Spoke In Tongues', recently and today here on MetalTalk the third track from this exciting release, 'Give Me 250ml', is premiered.

John Garcia is the most distinctive voice of an entire genre, desert rock, and normally you would expect some heavy guitars, pounding drums and fuzzy tunes from but he is about to release something extremely special and present himself stronger and more emotional then he has ever been.

Here's '250ml' for your listening pleasure.

After successful tours all over the world playing Kyuss, Slo Burn, Hermano and his solo project, John Garcia then blew away audiences with a unique live acoustic performance and now the desert king is about to release 'The Coyote Who Spoke In Tongues', on January 27th 2017 on Napalm Records.

John told us: "This record is one of the most important of my career, difficult and challenging to do, but worth every minute of sweat!"

The album was recorded and mixed by Steve Feldman and Robbie Waldman, mastered by Gene 'The Machine' Grimaldi at Oasis Mastering in California. 'The Coyote Who Spoke In Tongues' offers an emotional acoustic ride through John Garcia's solo work as well as songs by Kyuss in new arrangements like you have never heard before.

With longtime desert and touring fellas Ehren Groban on the acoustic guitar, Greg Saenz on percussions and bassist Mike Pygmie, 'The Coyote Who Spoke In Tongues' will be a MUST-HAVE for every fan of the desert rock and Kyuss era, and will come with exceptional artwork.

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
