Montreal indie rockers We Are Monroe released their debut full length White Lights via Stand Alone Records on April 18, and the band is celebrating its release with an official launch party this Saturday at Theatre Fairmount.
Filled with the band’s driving and anthemic take on moody post-punk by way of early 2000’s dance-rock, White Lights is reminiscent of acts like Interpol and Joy Division, with the sort of big memorable choruses that show why local rock radio has eagerly embraced the group.
Co-produced by Patrick Krief (of The Dears and his own project Krief) and Dave Traina (of The Damn Truth, who also handled mixing duties) with mastering by John Davis (Jimmy Page, U2, Led Zeppelin, New Order and Florence & The Machine), White Lights finds the band embracing the widescreen scope of their sound while retaining a bit of the dark underbelly beneath its sheen.
We Are Monroe launch White Lights with guest Krief at Theatre Fairmount (5240 Parc), May 6, 2017 at 9:00 pm. Tickets are $12 / $15, available here.
