More than thirty years since their formation on the streets of the Motor City, Madam X - which features sisters Roxy and Maxine Petrucci, Chris “Godzilla” Doliber and Bret Kaiser, is back with a brand-new album, Monstrocity (which will be released on October 31).
The 12-track album features the band's original lineup and is the first since their monstrous 1984 debut, We Reserve The Right, which featured the anthemic single and video "High In High School".
Metal fans already know the connection Madam X has to other bands from the Eighties genre, with drummer Roxy Petrucci going on to find international success with Vixen and a then unknown singer named Sebastian Bach temporarily taking over lead vocal duties before finding a new home as front man for Skid Row. After several line-up changes, Madam X disbanded and remained mostly inactive until an invitation from the Sweden Rock Festival brought the original foursome back together in 2014.

Monstrocity will feature all of the soaring vocals, infectious back beat and tasty guitar work the band is known for, as well as an updated version of “High in High School”. But don’t expect the band's long overdue sophomore release to be a throwback to the MTV era. This promises to be an album of seasoned veterans on top of their game.
Produced by Madam X and mixed by Michael Wagener (Megadeth, Metallica, Skid Row and Ozzy) as well as additional mixing by veteran vocalist Mark Slaughter, Monstrocity will be released by the EMP Label Group on CD and digital as well as limited-edition vinyl. EMP is an imprint of Megadeth co-founder and bassist, David Ellefson.
