Craig Chaddock photographed all the art pieces we made for the lyric booklet (this photo is a sneak peek) and he shot the album cover as well. The album is called Baby Eater! Craig has the magic touch, these shots really brought our vision to life. Things are seriously getting exciting these days, and we’ve got one hell of a heathen summer planned!
We have created a masterpiece! All that’s left is mixing and mastering, so the date is set to release our first album this summer 2015. It’s impossible express in writing how excited we are to share it with you! Thank you to Brian Baker for drums, James Cass for bass, Matt VanAllen for engineering and everyone at Big Fish Recording Studio for your help in exquisitely bringing our atheist hard rock dream into reality.
A big thank you to Sean Taylor and to the San Diego New Atheists (SDNA) meetup group for helping us promote our first full album live performance here in San Diego! The event was a success and we look forward to working with you again in the future.
We’ve poured our blood, sweat, and tears into ten hard rock songs each carrying a strong atheist message, and now it’s time to record! We’ve selected the legendary Big Fish Recording Studio in Encinitas CA. They’re knows ironically for producing the top Christian bands like POD, Switchfoot, and As I Lay Dying, as well as for their big drum sound. Megadeth and Blink 182 also recorded there. Here’s an interview of us at Big Fish…
We played at the first ever atheist church in San Diego; the Sunday Assembly. A live clip of us performing our song “Stardust” is featured in the KPBS news story “San Diego Atheist Group Looks To Spread Non-Belief”. We’re at 2.18 in the video.
A pre-production version of our self titled track “Monster On Sunday” is now the (temporary) theme song for The Maboom (Make A Believer Out Of Me) Show in San Diego. We’re writing a new special song just for them we’re calling “Make A Believer” that will take it’s place in the future.
We snuck in a photo shoot with Chris Goddard at The Grotto in Portland Oregon. We had a lot of fun infiltrating this beautiful and creepy place, even sneaking past closed ropes in the Cathedral for some controversial shots.
The Humanists of Greater Portland published an article about Monster On Sunday called “Who is the monster, God or us?” by Truman Ardent Smith
Now you can bring our atheist hard rock band to your school! Monster On Sunday is now a featured act on the Secular Student Alliance Speaker’s Bureau. Lets rock!
We’ve been declared CFI Portland’s “unofficial” band of choice! Thank you to Sylvia Benner, Dani Tofte, and Kurt Johansen for having us play at your events. What a wonderful time we had playing with Shelley Segal, we can’t believe we pulled off learning ten songs within one month for that show. One day we plan to take our acoustic rock duo act to a full band with a hard rock sound.
