ABOUT PALE MONSTERS (Short Version)
Pale Monsters are new wave-art rockers that bring an an off-kilter, modernized take to guitar and synth driven rock. They have been compared to Pere Ubu, Elvis Presley, David Bowie and the Talking Heads.
Led by the songwriting and "impassioned howl" (Vanyaland) of Chris Mulvey, the Boston-based quartet is made up of longtime Boston music veterans (and friends), Kevin McGrath, Mike Ward and Travis Richter.
The band’s 2016 5-song debut EP Take What You Can Take was "a set of loud, sad indie rock gems" (Boston Herald) described as "fresh and vital" (Worcester Telegram).
In late 2017, Pale Monsters released their "anthemic new single" (Vanyaland) "All This Time We Wait" through their website, earning a spot as one of the best of Boston singles of 2017 by influential Boston music site, Vanyaland.
The new track was the first glimpse into Pale Monster's first full length album, which was released on March 12, 2018, and titled, Are You Feeling Alive?
The album has been described as "some of the best indie rock released in recent memory" (No Depression) and "one of 2018’s most effective rock records" (Cashbox Magazine Canada). See more at the Press Highlights tab.
