Maserati to release Rehumanizer via Temporary Residence

NPR Music is streaming Maserati’s new album Rehumanizer ahead of its October 30 release date. NPR’s Marc Masters says, “Fifteen years into its existence, Maserati might have finally found its time. Perhaps none of that matters to Maserati, whose members have patiently developed their retro-futurist sound without much concern for trends or fashion. But if the time is right for their reach to grow, Rehumanizer is an excellent calling card. Everything they do well is on display in these six tracks, which are filled with driving bass, churning guitars, vacuum-sealed rhythm and smartly built crescendos. But the bulk of Rehumanizer is sleek, pedal-to-the-metal rock, sharply executed by a group thoroughly committed to its own stylistic cause.”
Rehumanizer is available for pre-order in the Temporary Residence online store and via iTunes. Earlier this month, the band has shared “End Of Man” with the UK-based Prog Magazine, who said “The veteran instrumental psych-prog-dance hybrid from the USA introduces vocals to the mix on their escalating, Kraftwerk-influenced new song, ‘End Of Man.’ Rehumanizer marks the first time the band have recorded without outside influence, with all tracks laid down and mixed by the group in their own studio.”
Additionally Noisey premiered “Rehumanizer II” from the album and said the track “combines their expert musicianship with sounds and pieces straight out of a Flock of Seagulls record. The result of the combination makes the music more than one specific genre. Even in its fun, it shows build up and tension, not giving way to cheesiness or nostalgia. Maserati can take nods from any time period, and make it super compelling.” 
Maserati are a band obsessed with process. Specifically, they’re obsessed with the process of marrying the past to the future – retro futurists hellbent on forging Krautrock and classic rock into one motorik, monolithic vehicle. Rehumanizer is the most accomplished product of that process to date, a marriage of man and machine that plays like a supergroup comprised of Gary Numan, Cluster, and Pink Floyd.
Recorded and mixed by drummer Mike Albanese – and produced entirely by the band in their own studio – this is the first Maserati album completely devoid of outside collaboration or interference. Building songs up bit by bit – and breaking them back down to their barest elements – Maserati fully embraced technology as a songwriting tool. The band takes greater risks than ever, sonically experimenting on the fly and incorporating unprocessed vocals for the first time ever.
For the past decade Maserati has built a career out of relentless forward momentum – a tight, sleek, chugging beast that drove towards the sun and rarely veered off course. Rehumanizer maintains that same ambition and sense of abandon, but is distinctly as much man as it is machine – a true alliance of the past and the future.
