Entitled Not Yet, Monotonix's second full-length explodes with fanatical vigor as the band returns reenergized, with a zealous focus on the strength of their songwriting. Recorded by Steve Albini, the finished sound is trembling with distortion, screaming with release, and set to be loosed upon the world on January 25th by Drag City. Not Yet is the livest, loudest, most basic and direct sound that Monotonix and we can have. The only thing we’re not sure about is, if Not Yet, then when?
Aside from the slew of previously divulged October and November dates, Monotonix are announcing a fresh batch of December shows that will take them through parts of the U.S. and Canada, with more dates certain to come. Those of you lucky enough to see them play in the coming weeks will get a taste of many of these new songs in person. For the uninitiated who find themselves wondering what to expect from the Monotonix live experience, well…ahem…hold on tight.
