Official Press Release:
Rock duo Robot Monster has released their newest single “OUT”, streaming now here. The song comes on the heels of their debut full-length album which was released earlier this year. Both were produced by Grammy award-winning Jacquire King (Kings Of Leon, Kaleo, Tom Waits, City and Colour) at King’s studio, The LBT, just outside of Nashville, Tennessee.
On the new single, the band shares: “‘Out’ explores the tipping point we all can reach at various times in life when we’ve suffered through enough deceit, betrayal, and emotional manipulation. The hulking, sinister riff lurks throughout the song as a reminder of the demons that drain life of all happiness unless they are completely and thoroughly driven OUT.”
Previous single “Get Somewhere” saw Robot Monster featured on Pittsburgh contemporary station T102; fans flooded the station with calls with over 7k calls following the band’s on-air interviews. The song has also been featured on Spotify’s Rock Hard and Apple Music’s All New Rock & Breaking Rock playlists.
Last May Robot Monster played their first show ever, serving as direct support for Stone Temple Pilots at the Palladium in New York City. The band is on tour now with The Bronx and Drug Church, with upcoming stops in Charlotte, Atlanta, and Memphis. For a full list of dates, please see below or visit: www.robotmonstermusic.com.
More about Robot Monster:
The question is too often posed: “Will rock music ever return?” It’s already here.
Look no further than Robot Monster, an irreverent and seemingly effortless duo, with their boots planted equally in rhythm and philosophy and fists full of melody, authenticity, and charm.
In 2020, guitarist Will Brennan and drummer Logan Sidle weaponized Instagram and TikTok with scrappy appearances in backyards and junkyards, quickly earning supportive comments and direct messages from the diverse likes of Skrillex, Fred Durst, and Wesley Schultz of The Lumineers. Since then the band has experienced a meteoric rise – gaining a combined social following of 500k and regularly garnering over 2M views per week on TikTok.
The magnetism of their musicianship and creativity quickly drew producer Jacquire King (Kings Of Leon, Buddy Guy, Tom Waits). King guided the New Haven, Connecticut duo as they collectively sharpened an identity and vision for what became Robot Monster. The band took shape without sacrificing, limiting, or overly complicating the initial spark, which quickly attracted so many.
On their self-titled debut album, they summon the enduring strength of stripped-down, bluesy rock n’ roll with the feel of indie rock and punkish power. Songs like the riff-oriented and hooky groove monster “Caged,” the moody “Cargo Cult,” the expansively melodious “King of Everything,” and the atmospheric “When We Sang” confirm Robot Monster is a genuine force of nature.
Both guys are in their twenties yet fully cognizant of the timeless appeal of what they’ve begun. “I think it’s refreshing to see young people playing rock music, passionately and authentically,” Sidle reasons. “The piano never went away. I don’t think guitars and drums will ever disappear, either.”
