MONOTRONE are a newly formed band from Basel (Switzerland)
The four band members are all familiar faces with impressive musical pasts spanning up to three decades.
In one constellation or another, the four have worked together before and shared stages across Europe with greats like ICE-T, PERRY FARRELL, MANIC STREET PREACHERS, DISTURBED or even ERIC CLAPTON and BOB GELDOF. In 2019, the four key figures of the Swiss rock scene decided to make common cause as MONOTRONE. The result is their first album with the simple name "1" (release date digital: 27.05.2022). In a grueling process of songwriting resulted in a collection of ten songs that take the listener on an exciting musical trip and combine different sounds and styles without compromise.
The album was recorded and mixed at Little Creek Studios with longtime mutual friend and former bandmate V.O. Pulver at the controls. Philippe Strübin's brilliant voice combined with Thomas Baumgartner's guitar wizardry, propelled by Fran Lorkovic's creative drumming and pumped up by Franky Kalwie's strong bass combine to create a fantastic and very versatile rock album. The kaleidoscope of grooves and styles ranges from hard rock, metal and grunge to pop, funk and even disco elements. Their first single release including video clip with the title track "1" will be released on FR April 1, 2022, their first full album will follow on FR May 27, 2022 worldwide as download/stream. Seeing these four musicians live and in action together as MONOTRONE should be one of the events of this year not to be missed!
