Modern Monsters - "Malice" (Pre-Save)

Bay Area Hard Rock Band Modern Monsters deliver serious emotional intensity and sonic grit on their brazen new EP "Malice", due March 24 on streaming platforms. The quintet dig deep into their roots with equal parts anthemic melodies and lyrical mischief, drawing on influences like Faith No More, Alice in Chains and AFI to create their punchy signature sound. This new collection also features a raucous, militant, punked-up cover of Jefferson Airplane's psychedelic opus "White Rabbit" that Modern Monsters proceed to make their own. It's the perfect song choice for a band with this much Earth to scorch. Simultaneously animated and dead serious, Modern Monsters are putting their stamp on modern rock with "Malice".

Modern Monsters are still pissed off. "Malice" represents continued frustration over current issues. This EP is an expression of disdain towards societal issues, unchecked power, two-part justice systems, distractions from introspection and perilous love. The sophomore release leads the listener to develop their own personal connection to Maleficent viewpoints. They don't aim to impress, they aim to disrupt....and have a damn good time doing it.
