Maserati is set to release Maserati VII via Temporary Residence on October 2. The band just released a stream of “Earth-Like” via Metal Sucks. The site said, “this song’s got everything you already love about Maserati and time-warps you back to the last time you saw them live, your body uncontrollably pulsating with the beat, your mind drifting to a far away happy place.” The track is also available to post and share via SoundCloud. Additionally, the band just announced the album pre-order and a fall tour in support of the release. All shows are listed below.
When Jerry Fuchs joined Maserati in 2004, he initiated a complete overhaul of the group: old songs were dropped, tempos were drastically sped up, and the budding psych-rock impulses of guitarists Coley Dennis and Matt Cherry were given room to grow. Beginning with the electrifying Inventions For The New Season, Maserati were a better, faster, stronger beast.
That spirit shines bright on Maserati VII, their first album conceived since Fuchs’ passing. Maserati has an uncanny ability to toggle time back and forth between the past, present, and future – often in the span of one song. On Maserati VII, they’re grounded and driven by new drummer Mike Albanese (Cinemechanica), whose dexterity and stamina prove a perfect fit for Maserati’s trademark relentless, driving rhythms and epic song lengths, anchored by bass badass, Chris “Coach” McNeal.
Recorded by Kevin Ratterman (My Morning Jacket, Young Widows) at The Funeral Home in Louisville, KY, and mixed by Steve Moore (Zombi, Lovelock) in New York, Maserati VIIperfectly captures the essence and evolution of Maserati as face-melting, bone-rattling, ass-shaking Moroder Metal.
