Black Gladiator busted out the gate hard in 2010 with our first release: a reissue of the awe-inspiring crudfest “Rockin’ Rollin’ Bitches” LP by Brookline, MA’s TUNNEL OF LOVE. Two years later we continued to spread this unique brand of ear piercing whomp with an LP release by TOL member Anthony Macbain’s THE PSYCHED project. Now, in 2014, we’re still in the game of furthering this demented agenda with THE MONSIEURS. This is Anthony’s older brother Andy’s forte and peak, as the musically tortured leader and originator of Tunnel of Love. With The Monsieurs, Macbain has fine-tuned his horrific delivery and concept without sacrificing any dBs. With the man himself solely on vocals and backed by two blonde bombshells, Hilken Mancini and Erin King on guitar and drums respectively, The Monsieurs are unleashing indubitable rockin’ rollin’ noise with sharp aesthetics, aggression and a perfect amount of pop sensibility, making this platter just palatable enough for those too timid to take the plunge into Tunnel of Love’s sonic cesspool.
