Monsters are Waiting their name sounds a bit like that old Nickelodeon cartoon or a Maurice Sendak book - but in fact, it's a band. you may have expected this, coming from a music blog.
Monsters Are Waiting is an LA group that will probably be pigeon-holed as emo. i suppose they dress the part - dark hair, moody stares, defiant and ...emotional. but i'll tell you what. their sound is different; their songs are raw, prickling with intensity and waiting to spring. it's more she wants revenge with a female vocalist (and less interpol lusting) than it is.. my chemical romance. you hear dark melodies, pretty awesome basslines, and they at least break up the indie pop, alt-country, and folk rock that dominates my everything.
their upcoming debut is titled Fascination, and it comes out June 6th on the developing Retone Records -but thanks to their myspace page, they already have quite a few fans awaiting the release.
they have a few tour dates already scheduled in random places:
June 6, 2006:: the Troubadour - West Hollywood, CA
June 7, 2006:: Galaxy Theater - Santa Ana, CA
June 8, 2006:: Brick by Brick - San Diego, CA
June 9, 2006:: Mardi Gras - Scottsdale, AZ
June 10, 2006:: Plush - Tuscon, AZ
June 14, 2006:: the Wiltern Theater - Los Angeles, CA
June 15, 2006:: Popscene - San Francisco, CA
July 18, 2006:: Black Cat - 1811 14Th st. NW Wdc
