Eighteen AnglesVocalist, multi-instrumentalist, über-energetic frontman and all-round rock ‘n’ roll legend are just a few things that describe .  Another is badass harmonica player of which his talents shine on his newest single “Eighteen Angels,” set for release August 20.  The second single from his upcoming studio album HORNS AND HALOS–due out  August 27–via Spinefarm Records made its debut today on NoisecreepListen to the track here.

HORNS AND HALOS is the follow-up to the 2011 critically acclaimed Sensory Overdrive, winner of Classic Rock Magazine’sAlbum Of The Year” and a No. 1 record in MONROE‘s Finnish homeland. It is a cosmopolitan affair, mixed by Petri Majuri at Seawolf Studios in Finland and written and recorded around the world by MONROE‘s international posse— bassist SAMI YAFFA (Hanoi Rocks, New York dolls), guitarist STEVE CONTE (New York Dolls, Company Of Wolves), drummer KARL “Rockfist” ROSQVIST (Chelsea Smiles, Danzig) and Swedish guitar star DREGEN (Backyard Babies).  MONROE is a frontman whose reputation is genuinely global and whose influence continues to be felt, with musicians  of all ages (from Dave Grohl  to the original Guns  N’ Roses members) citing his groundbreaking career as a source of inspiration.

The album’s first single released earlier this spring, “Ballad Of The Lower East Side,” is a nod to MICHAEL‘s early days in New York, a city he moved to for a decade following the mid-’80s breakup of glam-punk pioneers Hanoi Rocks (for which he was the frontman).  It also appears on HORNS AND HALOS.  Watch the video for “Ballad Of The Lower East Side” at:
