Bay Area Hard Rockers Modern Monsters Deliver Sonic Grit On Their Brazen New EP, ‘Malice’

Modern Monsters, from the Bay Area of San Francisco, imbue their sound with a serious emotional intensity, and that is well and truly in evidence on their upcoming EP, ‘Malice’, set for release on March 24.

Drawing from musical roots that include inspiration from the likes of Faith No More, Alice In Chains, and AFI, the quintet have a punchy signature sound that exemplifies their desire to scorch the earth wherever their feet may rest.

The five track collection includes a raucous cover of the Jefferson Airplane classic, ‘White Rabbit’, providing Modern Monsters with the perfect opportunity to put their stamp on a familiar track and introduce themselves to a wider audience.

The ‘Malice’ EP, which has already spawned the singles, ‘Road to Nowhere’, on February 14, and ‘Prism’, on March 10, sees Modern Monsters address a range of societal issues, including unchecked power, two-part justice systems, distractions from introspection and perilous love. The EP is a hard rocking release that will nonetheless appeal to all listeners who enjoy great music, and who also think there’s a lot more to life than just existing. Modern Monsters don’t set out to impress anyone, but rather their aim is to disrupt the system – and they’re having a great time on the way.
