Monks In The Wood formed from the ashes of several different groups, a bunch of friends and musicians who felt they had reached a dead end.
So they set off on a new path. Indie but not 'indie' the five-piece embarked on guitar abstractions, a kind of post-punk milieu of fresh ideas.
Live shows are a riot, with Monks In The Wood allowing their pulsating punk-infused riffs to dagger across each and every venue they touch.
New single 'No Love' is out on March 2nd, a delirious, rompin' stompin' garage melter that refuses to be bracketed.
Nailing their impish live energy, it's a neat intro from a band worth watching.
