Mr. BIG Premiere Another New Track 'Monster In Me'

 
Today, GuitarWorld.com presents the exclusive premiere of "The Monster In Me," a new song by Mr. Big. You can check out the track, which features a hefty dose of Paul Gilbert's fretwork, below.
 
The song is from the band's new studio album, ...The Stories We Could Tell, which will be released September 30 in North America via Frontiers Music Srl. It's the followup to 2011's What If.
 
The album features the original Mr. Big lineup of Gilbert (guitar), Billy Sheehan (bass) Eric Martin (vocals) and Pat Torpey (drums). However, because Torpey was recently diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, drummer Matt Starr (Ace Frehley) will fill in for Torpey on the band's upcoming world tour.
