Biography

Long Island, NY (2009 – present)

Sainthood Reps is an American band from Long Island, NY, formed in 2009. Their debut album, Monoculture, was released on Tooth & Nail in 2011 and was produced by Mike Sapone (Brand New, Crime In Stereo, The Xcerts). The band then signed to No Sleep Records and released their second album, Headswell, in October 2013. They also released a split EP with Weatherbox on Topshelf Records in May 2013.

Sainthood Reps began when Francesco Montesanto created and recorded four demos and showed them to his longtime musical companion, Brand New touring guitarist Derrick Sherman. They’d grown up together in Long Island, developing similar musical tastes and periodically playing music together when not touring with other bands. Drummer Bradley Cordaro and bassist Jani Zubkovs joined, and the band officially formed in September 2009. They first started touring in December of the same year with All The Day Holiday, followed by a January 2010 tour with Caspian. Also in January, the band released a split EP with O’Brother.

Their goal was simple. They shared many favorite bands such as Mogwai, Fugazi, Explosions in the Sky, Sunny Day Real Estate, Modest Mouse, The Jesus Lizard, and Built to Spill, and wanted to form a band that was influenced by those bands in every aspect, from live performance to studio recordings and everything in between.

    Wake up I feel guilty sleeping in I’m tired Please don’t tell me that I’m wrong, shot down. My aspirations have dropped out; they snuck out in the middle of the night. Two worlds in front of it Too young to give a shit (2 times) Running from our minds, our minds Just to buy some time before we die We’re gonna be free Pigs fly on someone else’s wings, I’m not lost; I just don’t want to be found. Hiding from the future, shutter out the thought of finding myself, alone with someone else. Two worlds in front of it Too young to give a shit (2 times) Running from our minds, our minds Just to buy some time before we die We’re gonna be free (2 times) Wake up I feel guilty sleeping in I’m tired Please don’t tell me that I’m wrong Running from our minds, our minds Just to buy some time before we die We’re gonna be free Two worlds in front of it Too young to give a shit (2 times) this is my best guess

    Headswell is the goods. Shelter and Breath Worth Breathing are some of the best songs they've written.

    Just when I thought Monoculture was perfect, Headswell blew me away.

    New track is great. It's called "Deadlines" if you haven't already heard it!

    See this band live. That's how I was interested to them and they are absolutely incredible - one of the best live bands I've seen in a long time.
