Big Head Todd & The Monsters Announce New Album & Tour

Article Contributed by Devious Planet | Published on Tuesday, April 2, 2024

Platinum-selling rockers Big Head Todd and the Monsters unveil "Thunderbird," the new single off their 12th studio album, Her Way Out, due May 31st on their own Big Records.

In discussing the new single, Todd Park Mohr said, "Inspired by the film American Graffiti, “Thunderbird” is a collection of one-liners from the film, knit together with a beat poet vibe - No one catches the Thunderbird in the end.  It has an AC/DC-like guitar riff and a cinematic style vocal.  “Thunderbird rising at the edge of town”, it’s all about drag racing and love never caught.  “Spread out your wings and fly” - we know you will like this song."

To date, the band has released two singles, "Crush" and "Her Way Out." Both tracks are off their forthcoming album, Her Way Out. This will be the band's first studio release since 2017s New World Arisin'.

The band looks forward to joining longtime friends Blues Traveler for a second summer in a row, playing all new cities. The 16 show Blue Monsters tour kicks off in El Dorado, Arkansas on July 30th. They look forward to performing selections from their vast catalog of songs, now spanning over three decades. Don't miss this tour
