Rocksteady, the band’s eight studio album, is set for release July 20 on Big Records through Warner Music Group’s Independent Label Group with its first single, “Beautiful,” already in rotation at nearly 30 stations.
“It’s a soul/Caribbean record that rocks,” singer/guitarist Todd Park Mohr said. “We almost went out of our way to take all the rock out of it, but it really rocks. IT’s the very first album we’ve ever done that’s cohesive. It makes a difference, in terms of this album standing out from our other albums.”
Tonight Big Head Todd and the Monsters take part in “Rib America Festival” at Soldier Memorial Park in St. Louis.
Additional festival appearances include XPoNential Music Festival at Wiggins Park in Camden, N.J. (July 16) and Ravinia Festival at Ravinia Park in Highland Park, Ill. (Aug. 7).
Fans can also find the band headlining at The Windjammer in Isle of Palms, S.C. (May 29-31), Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colo. (June 5), Higher Ground in South Burlington, Vt. (June 11) and Arnolds Park in Iowa (Aug. 20).
Summer dates are on the books through an Aug. 28 gig at Riverfront Park in Chattanooga, Tenn.
