Milking the Stars: A Re-Imagining of Last Patrol is the tenth studio album by the American stoner rock band Monster Magnet. According to the band's frontman Dave Wyndorf, the album is a "reimagined" version of their previous album, 2013's Last Patrol, featuring four new songs and two live tracks. The album is not strictly a remix of Last Patrol; songs feature new recordings and arrangements aimed at giving the album what Wyndorf describes as "a weird 1960s vibe".[5][6] The album closes with two live tracks which were recorded at the AB in Brussels in 2014, and which feature the debut performance of the band's new bassist, Chris Kosnik.[7]

The album was released on 14 November 2014 in continental Europe, 17 November 2014 in the UK, and 18 November 2014 in the US and Canada.[5]
