Thelonious Monster: Disappear

On US Election Day, an authentic LA punk rock act will return with a new album. It's been 34 years since Thelonious Monster released their debut album, and 16 years since their latest. Oh The Monster, the band's sixth full length comes out digitally on November 3rd, 2020, and a vinyl release is expected in January 2021.

"I have been told since I was a kid this is the most important election of our lifetime every election," lead singer Bob Forrest says. "It was never true. But myself n the guys believe in our heart of hearts. This truly is the most important election of our lifetime. So what better thing to combine it with than the most important record we have ever made. Most significant let’s say. That we are all still alive in 2020, if you know us, is a miracle in Itself. That we can still rock is unheard of. But most importantly: that we are still excited to be alive. Still care about our planet, our country and people. These are just a few of the amazing gifts that sticking around has shown us."

Disappear possesses the backbone which has made Thelonious Monster stand out as a genuine voice in punk rock and share bills with popular acts like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jane’s Addiction and Fishbone, and it reveals the veteran band in top form.

"We all worked really hard," Forrest comments on the new album. "We are familiar with what it takes to be good. Make a great record. And we did it. I think we made maybe our best record ever. At 60 years old! Some of us for decades out of playing music. I am so proud of what we did. It was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Full circle as they say. Still angry. Still hurt. Still mad to laugh. Mad for living. We made this album. And it is us."
