KXM, comprising dUg Pinnick of Kings X, George Lynch of Lynch Mob and Ray Luzier of KoRn, are set to release their second studio album, 'Scatterbrain', via RatPak Records on 17th March 2017.

Check out the video for the title track right here.

'Scatterbrain' is the follow-up to KXM's 2014 self-titled debut which debuted at #31 on the US Billboard 200 and features thirteen brand new tracks. It was recorded at the Steakhouse studio in North Hollywood, CA and is available to pre-order at Amazon.

'Scatterbrain' is thematically a darker record than the debut and builds upon KXM's developed sound, but this time explores different dynamics, drawing inspiration from prog, ska, punk and Metal and including gems such as 'Breakout', 'Calypso', 'True Deceivers' and the outro of 'Angel'.


dUg Pinnick told us: "We wrote all the songs right on the spot and immediately recorded them, everyone doing his part and no one telling the other one what or how to play. Just like the previous album!"

Drummer Ray Luzier added: "We wanted to use the same formula as the 1st KXM record... book studio time, come in fresh every day with a new idea, run with it and not over think anything."

George Lynch commented: "Basically it was 'record-topia!' We showed up in the studio, camped out with a bunch of gear and let the tape roll! No pre-production, no rehearsal, no pre-written songs; every song was written as a product of an in-studio jam session."

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.
