MONDO GENERATOR recently returned from their European tour where front man Nick Oliveri checked in from the road with the following update:
“Eastern Baltic rock! There were tons of hot girls, but unfortunately none of them were at our gigs. Estonia was cool, but Bulgaria was the best as me and Ian got to sing ‘Sex and Violence’ with THE EXPLOITED; I’ll never forget it,” says Oliveri recapping MONDO GENERATOR’s recent European tour. “Warsaw is always a good time, but I haven’t played there since I played with QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE 7 years ago. We had crazy drives through Serbia and Croatia going into Romania, where we got lost thinking we were taking an exit, but it was really an entrance. We had a great time playing for all the European fans and hope to get back there soon.”
MONDO GENERATOR’s new album Dead Planet landed in stores this week through Suburban Noize Records. The band is currently on the road all summer long on the second stage at Ozzfest 2007 and playing off dates with CIRCUS DIABLO. Dead Planet is already getting a strong reaction from radio where MONDO GENERATOR was the #3 most added on FMQB’s Loud Rock charts.
Recorded by producer Nick Raskulinecz at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606, Dead Planet is thunderous, raw rock ”˜n’ roll at its best. The album has already generated significant critical acclaim upon European release.
MONDO GENERATOR was originally formed by ex-QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE and KYUSS bassist Nick Oliveri in 1997. The band has previously released two critically acclaimed albums, their classic debut album Cocaine Rodeo in 2000 and 2003’s A Drug Problem That Never Existed. Initially intended as a side-project, the band has now become Oliveri’s full time venture.
“MONDO GENERATOR is not a side-project anymore,” Oliveri says bluntly. “I used to do MONDO every now and then on spare time and now it’s my first choice. All other bands I play in have become my side-project, so in other words my mistress has now become my wife.”
