Formed in August of 2011, Almost Monday are a quintet from the south east coast of England. 'Almost Monday' consists of vocalist Connor Rafferty, Joe Hyson and Vic Payne on guitars and backing vocals, bassist Gary Stafford and drummer Ollee Newby. Brought together through band break ups and outside sources the line-up were finally united through their shared love and passion for music and everything that comes with it.
With each member bringing their own unique influences to the forefront including Kids In Glass Houses, Hit The Lights and Moneen to Primus, Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows, Dallas Green and even Phil Collins! Almost Monday give there own take on pop-rock/pop-punk anthems that anyone would find themselves singing along to.
Recently hitting The Outhouse Studios in Reading (You Me At Six, Kids In Glass Houses, Deaf Havana and Lower Than Atlantis) Almost Monday's debut track 'The Less They Know The Better' was recorded. The track was put up for free download on their Facebook page and reached just under 1000 plays in one week! For a band that has only been together for 3 months this showed an incredible response and great potential for future recordings.
Almost Monday will be heading to the studio early 2012 to record their debut E.P which is set to be released in the spring. Expect big choruses, attention-grabbing-sing-alongs and high levels of emotion if their live shows are anything to go by.
