Biography

Glorious Monster to Release Debut Album, “Adventures on Earth”

‘Adventures on Earth,’ the first full-length album release from Minneapolis-based band Glorious Monster, is due to be released in the spring of 2007. A cohesive marriage of soaring melodies, transient textures, and poignant lyrical ideas, Monster’s music is as accessible as it is unique. Embracing a wide and eclectic range of instruments and innovative production techniques to explore themes of joy, melancholia and paranoia, Glorious Monster boldly bends the boundaries of lyrical pop music to create a truly original sound.

The culmination of over a years worth of writing, recording and producing, ‘Adventures on Earth’ embodies a colorful palette of lyrical ideas and emotions in its presentation of both the miraculous and the disturbing aspects of the modern world. An intricate combination of guitars, keyboards, and studio wizardry compliment the sweet falsetto of vocalist Brian Casey. Beautiful, haunting, and powerful, Monster’s debut is as diverse as it is cohesive, flowing seamlessly from beginning to end in a way reminiscent of a Pink Floyd record, rendering ‘Adventures on Earth’ not merely a collection of songs, but a genuine album.

Up until this point, Glorious Monster has been a strictly studio band, winning fans over the internet through leaked song releases and MySpace. Monster’s upcoming live shows will feature a groundbreaking mix of live instruments (featuring additional live musicians) and electronic samples and loops, created live on stage, making a Glorious Monster show as unique as their recordings.
