Hugh Cornwell to release ‘Monster’

June 28, 2018

Former Stranglers frontman Hugh Cornwell is returning to the fray with a new album and tour later this year.

New album ‘Monster’ will be released on October 5, each track dedicated to Cornwell’s heroes and villains from history, politics and the arts.

It’s a diverse gallery, ranging from Lou Reed (‘Mr. Leather’) to Mose Allison (‘Mosin’’), to ’70s stuntman Evel Knievel (Pure Evel), 1940s Hollywood star Hedy Lamarr (‘The Most Beautiful Girl In Hollywood’) to Sgt Bilko star Phil Silvers (‘Bilko’), Italian dictator Benito Mussolini (‘Duce Coochie Man’) and Zimbabwe ex-president Robert Mugabe (‘Robert’).

‘Monster’ is available to pre-order on 2CD or double vinyl (gatefold, 180gsm) formats as well as digital downloads.
