Michael Monroe (opens in new tab) has released an animated lyric video for his new single Junk Planet.

It’s the latest track lifted from the former Hanoi Rocks (opens in new tab) frontman’s new album One Man Gang which was launched last week through Silver Lining Music.

The promo has been released to coincide with the start of Monroe’s UK and European tour which kicked off on Tuesday evening in Oslo. 

It’ll continue tonight (October 24) at Stockholm’s Fryhuset Klubben and wrap up with a run of 10 shows across the UK between October 30 and November 9.

Monroe said: “It’s an ‘all killers, no fillers’ album and I can’t wait for you to hear it. I also can’t wait to see you down the road!”

Monroe is joined in the lineup by former Hanoi Rocks and New York Dolls bassist Sami Yaffa, guitarists Rich Jones and Steve Conte, along with drummer Karl Rockfist.
