The Montecristos are Neal X – former guitarist of Sigue Sigue Sputnik and long-term sideman of electro-burlesque starman Marc Almond (who appears on the album as special guest vocals on a cover of Brand New Cadillac).
The band is touring in support of their new LP and lead single ‘Born To Rock ‘n’ Roll’.
The Montecristos made their debut in Andrés Dussan’s 2014 movie ‘Down Dog’, where they then they continued gigging in the UK and Spain. They launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise £5,000 to make their album. Raising almost double that in no time.
‘Born To Rock ‘n’ Roll’ is out on 18 May.
