With their debut album on its way, NEW MONARCH (previously MONARCH) released their first two singles, “The Fray” and “Pearls” in 2021 to critical and fan acclaim. Loudwire remarked about “The future looks promising for this new band.”
They then headed back into the studio to finish up recording with producer Bob Marlette (Seether, Shinedown, Filter). The product of these studio sessions includes the new single, “The Day You Left,” out Friday, May 13th.
Guitarist, Ryan Williams explains of the new single “‘The Day You Left’ is the side of this band we definitely wanted everyone to see next! It is a song about love and loss. It is dark and twisted yet somehow still beautiful. I think it showcases the band at its most Dynamic and most passionate” This single comes as the first release through the new partnership between Williams’ Brahma Creative and Legend Recordings/Ingrooves/Universal, run by Ohio businessman, Chris Bianchi. “This song is passionate, driving, and very personal to the band. We can't wait to finally pull back the curtain and let the world in on New Monarch, " explains Bianchi. NEW MONARCH consists of Williams, whose term as guitarist and songwriter for Red Sun Rising helped thrust the band from garage to greatness and James Lascu and Matt Puhy, AKA the powerhouse rhythm section from rock band Wilson (a band known for their amazing live shows)! Adding fresh perspective is vocalist Sabastian Duke, whose soulful voice and soaring range are highlights of every song.
