Band to play iconic venues such as The Whiskey A Go-Go, Los Angeles and New York’s Mercury Lounge. Tour takes in San Francisco, Venice Beach, Phiadelphia, Sacramento and more!

Band nominated for THREE LA MUSIC AWARDS – 15th November 2012!

Australian alternative rock group Monks of Mellonwah have announced that they will be travelling to the U.S.A for a 2nd time to perform at the 2012 Los Angeles Music Awards, (where the band has received 3 award nominations including ‘Best International Artist’). Whilst there they will tour the California and New York regions, including a show at the iconic Whiskey A Go-Go in Los Angeles and the Mercury Lounge in New York City. The Monks will also record some new tracks that will feature in their up and coming debut album.

The Monks have had a whirlwind of a year since their “Best Indie Rock Band” win at the 2012 Artists in Music Awards earlier in 2012 and the Summer release of their new EP “Neurogenesis”, which received very positive reviews. The music video for “Neverending Spirit” landed the Monks rotation on the MTV network and a heightened popularity worldwide.

The band recently completed an Australian national tour and are excited to be heading to the U.S.A for a more in-depth visit. “We are so pumped to be returning to the US and playing at the LA Music Awards. Being able to tag a tour and some recording on the back of the awards show is just fantastic and a dream come true.” Explains Monks lead guitarist Joe De La Hoyde.

The new full-length album will find them working with famed producer Keith Olsen for 3 tracks, and self-producing the rest. The album is due for release in early 2013. The Los Angeles Music Awards take place on November 15, 2012 at the Avalon Theater.

“They’re expert players that favor full-sized, in-your-face production (remembering the post-Nirvana ’90s), Will Maher sings in weighty syllables like the previously unknown progeny of Chris Cornell and Scott Weiland. You want epic? This is commercial alternative rock (™) taken to its thundering ends.” BIG TAKEOVER MAGAZINE (USA)
