Monotonix: free MP3 and gigs!

Here’s a brand new free MP3 from Monotonix! “Give Me More” is another track from their sessions with Steve Albini, giving you a taster of what is to come on their forthcoming album due out next year.

Monotonix are hitting the UK with some of their explosive live shows, they play Electric Picnic, Offset and End of The Road as well as various headline shows around the country.

4 September Electric Picnic Festival Portlaoise, Ireland, IE
5 September Offset Festival London
6 September Volks Brighton
7 September Camp London
8 September The Musician Leicester
9 September The Plug Sheffield
10 September The Croft Bristol
11 September End of the Road Festival Dorset, UK

Despite having the plug pulled four songs in to their last UK performance (at the Pavement curated ATP festival), Monotonix are back with a full tour in September. Notorious for their riotous live performances, it takes a venue with a special kind of attitude to accommodate the chaotic maelstrom that the Ami Shalev (vocals), Yonatan Gat (guitars), and drummer Haggai Fershtman create. Their refusal to sit still, or even leave the drums in one place for more than a song or two, is a part of their charm — the other parts include balls-out rock and roll (sometimes literally!) and a bottomless desire for good times.

Hailing from Tel Aviv, Israel, Monotonix have become an incredible part of the international independent rock scene in a just over two years. In April Drag City released the limited edition Never Died Before / Lazy Boy 7-inch and mp3 with artwork hand drawn by drummer Haggai. On 2 August we offered you another chance to score a brand spankin’ new limited edition 7-inch from the same sessions called Fun, Fun, Fun / Try, Try, Try recorded by Steve Albini. From these same sessions, another track will be made available to download from 20 September called “Give Me More” which will also be a taster of their forthcoming album due next year.

Monotonix’s two releases thus far, the Body Language EP and the full-length album Where Were You When It Happened? have distilled the rowdy essence of their legendary live shows into recorded sound — but the quest to fill the grooves with the rush that comes from the live experience continues. For their latest attempt, Monotonix travelled to Electrical Audio for some furious recording with Steve Albini. The fast and fun results are available on two 7″ singles “Never Died Before,” and “Fun Fun Fun.” These singles are songs-on-the-run, quickly rendered in best punk rock fashion in order to help pay for dinner or gas or whatever else is needed to get to the next town. They won’t be around forever so pick ’em now!
