Big Head Todd and the Monsters will release a new album entitled Her Way Out on May 31 via their own Big Records imprint. The Colorado-based four-piece, who previewed the LP by unveiling new single “Thunderbird,” also laid out plans for the 16-show Blue Monsters co-headlining summer tour with Blues Traveler.

The 10-track Her Way Out marks the band’s 12th studio album and first since 2017’s New World Arisin’. Big Head Todd And The Monsters — guitarist/vocalist Todd Park Mohr, drummer Brian Nevin, bassist Rob Squires and multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Lawton — recently shared the singles “Crush” and “Her Way Out.” Both songs are featured on the forthcoming LP.


Frontman Todd Park Mohr weighed in on the bombastic new single “Thunderbird,” stating:

“Inspired by the film American Graffiti, ‘Thunderbird’ is a collection of one-liners from the film, knit together with a beat poet vibe – No one catches the Thunderbird in the end. It has an AC/DC-like guitar riff and a cinematic style vocal. ‘Thunderbird rising at the edge of town’, it’s all about drag racing and love never caught. ‘Spread out your wings and fly’ – we know you will like this song.”
