With anticipation high for the 18-track album, which guitar/bass player Greg Edwards described as an auditory move “from the outer space of Fantastic Planet to inner space,” the band is offering a free download of the single “Hot Traveler”  as well as documenting the recording process in a series of studio diaries via Brooklyn Vegan.

Hot Traveler fan-created lyric video:

Ken Andrews and Edwards explain that their approach to writing and recording Fantastic Planet andThe Heart Is A Monster have been similar, saying “The songs on Fantastic Planet appear more or less in the order that we wrote them… when, we do a song now, we write it and record it soup-to-nuts without moving to another song… It takes longer, but it makes more sense for us artistically to explore a song completely before moving on.”

The Heart Is A Monster pre-orders are available via, iTunes ( and Amazon (
