MONSTROUS is 3 brothers in their 20’s from Rhode Island who’ve forged an unusual musical style somewhere between Lightning Bolt, The Beatles and Nirvana and whose fans include The Dandy Warhols, BRMC, and Dinosaur Jr.

Biography

The Gethway brothers – Led (guitar/vocals), Ken (bass/vocals) & Alex (drums/vocals) – have been playing & stockpiling songs for over 10 years & used to travel around the country in a big white candy truck playing gigs & writing more songs. After living and recording in Portland, OR for several years (where they made fans of The Dandy Warhols, BRMC, Dinosaur Jr. and others), they are now back in Providence working on the follow-up to their debut album, Mother Nature’s Slaves (Howler Records). Influenced by Syd Barret, the Beach Boys, Forrest Carland, Leonard Cohen, the Beatles, the Ramones, Nirvana, Flaming Lips, and Lightning Bolt, their style careens from headbanging punk to beautiful rich harmony pop to off-the-map weirdness and chaos.

Discography

MONSTROUS self-released two CDs, Not a Studio Record and The Revolution is Death, before signing to Howler Records in 2006 and releasing Mother Nature's Slaves. The band is currently working on it's next album.
