In advance of the release of Abyssinia, the anticipated new full-length from Washington-based volume dealers, MOS GENERATOR, today Revolver streams opening psalm “Strangest Times”
Issue MOS GENERATOR guitarist/vocalist Tony Reed of the harmony-strewn track, “I like getting directly to the guts of things at the beginning of a record. Within two seconds after it starts, ‘Strangest Times’ is in full flight and all instruments and vocals are in play. It’s a pusher about the weight of guilt and the sacrifices people make to move through this life with one another. Unlike some of the other material on Abyssinia, it’s a very typical MOS GENERATOR song. Quick and to the point a very fun to play live.”

MOS GENERATOR formed during the Winter of 2000 in Port Orchard, Washington from the ashes of a decade-long on-again-off-again collaboration between its three members, all of which are long time veterans of the road and studio. The need to strip down to the basics of hard rock was apparent from the start and continues to be the foundation for the band’s recent material. MOS GENERATOR has released six studio albums as well as an album retrospective, a live offering, and a plethora of split 7″ and 12″ singles on such labels as Listenable, Roadburn, Small Stone, Ripple, Nasoni, Lay Bare, Hevi Sike, H42, Devil’s Child, and Heavy Psych Sounds.
