These Monsters - Harder And Faster

Leeds' These Monsters used to be a sax-enabled, largely instrumental post-prog-post-rock-post-hardcore outfit, when having so many conjunctions were the only way to keep them down. Slimmed to a trio they return with a new album, Heroic Dose ("a quantity of a recreational drug sufficient to achieve the maximum possible psychedelic or psychotropic effects"), on May 13th and a revitalised sound, more direct, more vocal and fuller on in the intense, goggle eyed pursuit of crashing into a wall with reason, like Kong or the late Blakfish with third eye reddening and a Standard rocket up their collective arses. They've just supported The Bronx on tour, for a reason.
