Atmospheric four-piece MonstrO out of Atlanta, Georgia, have signed to Vagrant Records and will release their debut via the label late this summer. The band includes vocalist/guitarist Charlie Suarez, guitarist Juan Montoya (formerly of Torche), bassist Kyle Sanders (formerly of Bloodsimple) and drummer Bevan Davies (also formerly of Bloodsimple). MonstrO began work on the album in Atlanta with producer William DuVall (vocalist for Alice In Chains). Sanders says, "We've been collectively writing and recording for two years now and thanks to Vagrant we're finally recording our first proper full-length. We'll be locked up for the next month recording and mixing with our good friend William DuVall at the helm. These songs have taken on a life of their own and we're all extremely thrilled to lay them all down and begin the journey."
