Monte Pittman launches “Be Very Afraid” video

– December 12th, 2017 –

Having released his latest full-length, Inverted Grasp of Balance, last year via Metal Blade Records, Monte Pittman is now launching a new video for the album track, “Be Very Afraid” (by Travis Colbert: bit.ly/2iijkXC). To view the video, please visit: youtube.com/watch?v=AALVowwKodA

Monte Pittman comments: “‘Be Very Afraid’ was filmed in Colorado & New Mexico by Travis Colbert from Bravo Tip Or Pay. I’ve been using their app to sell tickets and merch at shows. It’s a way to send money to anyone at any time without exchanging information. They recently brought me with them to demonstrate their app on Shark Tank and got a deal with Mark Cuban & Lori Greiner.”

Catch Monte Pittman live across the USA this winter – see below for upcoming dates!
Dec. 21 – Los Angeles, CA – Whisky A GoGo
Jan. 12 – Shreveport, LA – Strange Brew
Jan. 13 – Dallas, TX – Three Links
Jan. 19 – San Diego, CA – Brick By Brick
Jan. 26 – Anaheim, CA – Randy Rhoads Remembered (NAMM) @ Yost Theater

There are great guitarists, great vocalists and great songwriters, but Monte Pittman is one of the elite few who can truly lay claim to all three titles. With his fourth full-length, Inverted Grasp of Balance, he has once again raised the stakes, delivering a riveting collection of full force metal that showcases his continuing evolution, undoubtedly expanding his devout – and ravenous – fan base. The record also features powerhouse drummer Richard Christy of Charred Walls Of The Damned/Iced Earth/Death fame and virtuoso bassist Billy Sheehan, famous for his work with a plethora of talented artists – including David Lee Roth, Mr. Big and, more recently, Winery Dogs. The skill of all concerned explodes from the speakers!

Monte Pittman launches “New Blood Keeps Us Alive” video

– October 12th, 2017 –

Having released his latest full-length, Inverted Grasp of Balance, last year via Metal Blade Records, Monte Pittman is now launching a new video for the album track, “New Blood Keeps Us Alive” (by Travis Colbert: http://bit.ly/2iijkXC). To view the video, please visit: youtube.com/watch?v=tU6RECXtUi8

Monte Pittman comments: “I discovered the Bravo Tip Or Pay app from performing for the Ultimate Jam Night at the Whisky A Go Go. I think it’s something that could change every musicians’ life. I’ve been selling tickets to my shows and selling merchandise at shows using their app. They’ve been coming with me on some shows and brought along Travis Colbert to film content. While in New York, I was sitting around playing my acoustic where we were staying and Travis started filming me. He said, ‘We could make a video’. Once I saw what he filmed, we immediately started filming the ‘New Blood Keeps Us Alive’ video since that’s the only track that has acoustic guitar on it. We have been filming for more videos coming out soon also.”

Oct. 21 – Los Angeles, CA – Hi Hat (Metal Assault showcase)

MONTE PITTMAN streams new album, ‘Inverted Grasp of Balance’, via the Wall Street Journal – alongside an exclusive interview!

– September 21st, 2016 –

There are great guitarists, great vocalists and great songwriters, but Monte Pittman is one of the elite few who can truly lay claim to all three titles. With his fourth full-length, Inverted Grasp Of Balance, he has once again raised the stakes, delivering a riveting collection of full force metal that showcases his continuing evolution, undoubtedly expanding his devout – and ravenous – fan base. To hear Inverted Grasp Of Balance (due out this Friday, September 23rd) in full before its release, please visit the Wall Street Journal: blogs.wsj.com – where an exclusive interview with Monte Pittman can be read, alongside the album stream!

Inverted Grasp Of Balance can be pre-ordered in various formats now at: metalblade.com/montepittman

To assert that Pittman has had a storied career is something of an understatement. His resume includes an ongoing and fruitful collaboration with multi-platinum selling artist Madonna, having recorded and toured with her extensively over a period of more than fifteen years. Then there’s his first band, Myra Mains, his stint in the metallic behemoth that is Prong, and collaborations with a broad spectrum of international artists. If his time with Prong did not fully communicate just how much metal flowed through his veins, with 2014′s Flemming Rasmussen-produced The Power Of Three – his first release with Metal Blade Records – he compellingly blended killer riffs, blistering leads and gigantic hooks to deliver an album that was equal parts anthemic grandeur and in-your-face attitude, making metalheads around the world sit up and take note.

Now, for his latest offering, Inverted Grasp Of Balance, Pittman teamed up with powerhouse drummer Richard Christy of Charred Walls Of The Damned/Iced Earth/Death fame and virtuoso bassist Billy Sheehan, famous for his work with a plethora of talented artists – including David Lee Roth, Mr. Big and, more recently, Winery Dogs – the skill of all concerned explodes from the speakers. With such passionate professionals and Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Steel Panther) handling production duties, the record came together quickly and smoothly. This really is the proverbial “whole package”: an album that has been lovingly crafted in all aspects, that Pittman hopes reaches as many ears as possible. “I had a true vision for this record from the start, and I couldn’t imagine a better team to help me realize it,” Pittman comments. “We’re going to make some real noise with ‘Inverted Grasp Of Balance‘ – so get ready!”

Inverted Grasp Of Balance track-listing:
1. Panic Attack
2. Arisen in Broad Daylight
3. Guilty Pleasure
4. The Times Are Changing
5. Double Edged Sword
6. Cadabra
7. Pride Comes Before the Fall
8. California
9. Be Very Afraid
10. Obliterated
11. Skeleton Key
12. New Blood Keeps Us Alive
