Mondo Cozmo ‘s ‘This Is For The Barbarians’ Out Now

Today, Mondo Cozmo aka Josh Ostrander, released his third full length album via Last Gang, This is for the Barbarians. The  album from the rock and roll songsmith – who is currently on the road supporting The Airborne Toxic Event – recognizes that death and life can be celebrated synchronically, pulling the darkness in to find the light inside, discovering grandeur in life’s most intimate moments. “It’s bright and funny, the human experience in a year of isolation,” Ostrander says. “It’s a slice of my liver and a piece of my heart. This is for the people going through darkness like I’ve been going through. Is anybody else out there hurting, or mad, or scared out of their mind? We’re in this together.”

Ostrander also shares his latest single from the album, “WW3″. The song was written during the pandemic, long before the current struggle in Ukraine, though he felt a need to change some of the track’s original lyrics and leaned on a hero and friend for advice – Bruce Springsteen. “There was a line in the chorus I was concerned about with the situation in Ukraine,” he notes. “Shortly before the song was prepared to come out, I sent the song to Bruce Springsteen and asked him what his thoughts were. He said that if it was possible, change it.”
