Big Head Todd and the Monsters [website | Amazon.com] are not that big on anniversaries, so there won't be any big hoopla over the fact that the band is officially crossing the three-decade mark this year. Thirty years would seem like something to commemorate, especially with the same core lineup, an achievement few other name-brand bands can boast of. Yet right now they're less about celebrating stability than volatility, in the form of their eleventh studio album, New World Arisin', which makes good on its forward-facing title with what might be the brashest rock and roll of their career. The old world can't rest on any laurels, and neither will they.
"We're in a real exciting part of our career right now," says co-founder Todd Park Mohr. "We're a viable band with a great audience and we're able to work at a very high level. It's a career that's getting more and more interesting, rather than less, which is remarkable," he says, chuckling at the unlikelihood of anyone being this cheerfully all-in, this far in. "I mean, 30 years into it, I really feel like: Wow, this is getting fun. I'm learning more about music and about my instrument, and it's just really engaging in every way. We also dovetail well with the times, I think; I feel like we have something to say."
