The Almost's new album "Monster Monster" will be available in stores and online November 3rd! "Monster Monster" is the five-piece rock group’s sophomore album, the follow-up to 2007’s Southern Weather. Formed by Underoath drummer Aaron Gillespie along with guitarists Jay Vilardi and Dusty Redmon, bassist Alex Aponte and newest member, drummer Joe Musten, The Almost’s "Monster Monster" represents the culmination of two years of touring, with the resulting disc a melding of the group’s individual talents into a truly collaborative effort.
This full-length will also be preceded by a Limited Edition five-track EP entitled the "Monster EP," featuring three album cuts and two B-sides.
It's all too easy to make an album in this day and age. You rent out a studio, record one part, and then cut and paste it across the whole record. That happens partly because of fear. Putting your soul on tape is a scary thing. THE ALMOSTovercame that fear and did something completely different for not only themselves but modern rock as a whole. They holed up in a small room in Nashville's Omni Studios for only five days and played every note of their third full-length album, FEAR INSIDE OF OUR BONES (Tooth & Nail/EMI/Universal), together in unison. Now, there's an overwhelming thunder on the horizon. It's the sound of a band realizing its potential. It's the sound of life. It's the sound of THE ALMOST.
