Former HANOI ROCKS vocalist Michael Monroe played a last-minute show last night (Sunday, May 20) at The Bowery Electric in New York City. Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be seen below.
Michael‘s latest album, “Sensory Overdrive”, was released in the U.S. and Canada in August 2011 via Spinefarm/Universal. The CD, which was released in Europe in March 2011 via Universal Music subsidiary Spinefarm Records, features guest appearances by MOTÖRHEAD‘s Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister and three-time Grammy-winning country/folk singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams.
“Sensory Overdrive” was recorded in Los Angeles with legendary producer Jack Douglas, who has previously worked with AEROSMITH, JOHN LENNON, CLUTCH, SLASH’S SNAKEPIT and NEW YORK DOLLS, among many others.
Monroe in June 2011 recruited Dregen (real name: Andreas Tyrone Svensson) of Swedish sleaze rockers BACKYARD BABIES to be the guitarist of Monroe‘s solo band following the departure of Ginger (THE WILDHEARTS).
