Monogrenade lauded by Les Inrocks

Monogrenade’s latest album, Composite, is being praised by French magazine Les Inrockuptibles. Indeed, Thomas Burgel says that this second album confirms Monogrenade’s greatness, and gives it 4 stars and a half (out of 5). Boooom! That means you should definitely purchase Composite (bandcamp / iTunes) if you haven’t done so yet.

The band will be playing in Chicoutimi on October 10th, and will fly to France in November for a mini tour. Visit the Shows page for all the tour dates.

Composite to be released in France + New Video

 

Monogrenade is very pleased to announce the release of their sophomore effort, Composite, on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean on September 1st, 2014 via French label Atmosphériques. Released in Canada in February via BonsoundComposite utilizes vintage synthesizers that coast through planetary atmospheres (Exclaim), and lyrically explores our human essence.

To add to this great news, Exclaim.ca premiered the video for Métropolis, directed by Christophe Collette, the man behind the much talked-about stop-motion video for Ce soir.

The band will be playing at Gesù this Friday, June 13th, as part of the FrancoFolies de Montréal, where they will present their new show for the first time in Montreal since the release of Composite.
