    ARTISTdirect has teamed up with New Jersey rock gods Monster Magnet to premiere their new song "Paradise" from Last Patrol, out October 15 via Napalm Records. These rock merchants are taking us to "Paradise" with their riffs.

    "'Paradise' is a kind of a 'waking dream,'" frontman Dave Wyndorf told ARTISTdirect about the song. "A conversation I had (or did I just dream it?) with a girl on a ferry boat ride from Stockholm, Sweden to Helsinki, Finland. Those boat rides are long and I don't sleep well so one can imagine how surreal the dreams can be. Musically, I've tried to re-create that strange, dreamy feeling. The seconds before and after you wake up and you're not quite sure what's real and what isn't."

    Fucking A, that's intense, and deep. Plus, the song will slay you dead, so crank the knobs and enjoy with those deets in mind.

    The band is going on its first North American tour in over 10 years with Royal Thunder and Zodiac as support.
