Thunderous riffs charged with the raw energy of purely aggressive and uncompromised hard rock and catchy melodic hooks comprise the foundation of Chicago rock masters The Outfit's new studio album, "Go." The album was released via Pavement Entertainment, marking their third release, following 2020's "Viking."

"Go" was expertly engineered by Chicago music stalwart Matt Mercado at Sonic Palace Studios in Oak Park, Illinois. It was mixed in Los Angeles by Grammy-nominated, multi-Platinum producer Ulrich Wild, known for his work with Pantera, Static-X, White Zombie, Deftones, and Breaking Benjamin, who produced densely tight, yet well balanced high-quality sound.

From the opening track to the closing notes, "Go" delivers relentless hooks and infectious melodies that grab hold and refuse to let go. The Outfit's signature sound, characterized by driving rhythms and blistering guitar solos, is on full display here, showcasing the band's undeniable chemistry and musicianship. 

"Go" opens up with a Billboard charting hit “Monster,” which was previously released as a single in April 2022, accompanied by the haunting music video, visualizing the energy of the song and reflecting the philosophical ideas and insights of the lyrics.

The Outfit - Monster

Singer Andy Mitchell shares, "'Monster' is a song about a human that is becoming a monster through psychotic thinking and imagery. ‘Monster’ conveys the feeling of being trapped inside your mind knowing the difference between right and wrong but not being able to overturn the outcome."

The musical range of the album’s nine tracks spans from good old overdriven rock and roll hits such as “Big Eyes” and “You Say,” mixed with haunting power ballads, starting with drama storytelling “Arrival of Jane,” melodic “Mountain,” and heavier “Fire Eye”, further amplified by arena anthems “Elo Kiddies,” the title hard rocking track “Go,” closing with “God Save The Queen,” which adds a hint of high-energy punk rock reminiscent of the late 70’s era but with the modern dense sound and finely articulate riffs.  

Guitarist Matt Nawara says, “What I like about the album is the diversity we put into it. Each song stands on its own. From the aesthetic feel of ‘The Arrival of Jane’ to the hard rock push of ‘Go,’ there is a song for everyone.” 

Undoubtedly, "Go" is a testament to The Outfit's evolution as a band and their unwavering commitment to delivering hard-hitting rock music that leaves a lasting impact. With this album, The Outfit solidifies their place as one of the most exciting acts in the hard rock scene, and "Go" is sure to leave listeners craving more.
