Exploding out of their hometown of Toronto, JUNO Award-winning band MONOWHALES have put a new lease on the alt rock genre. Their 2019 breakout single ‘RWLYD (Really Wanna Let You Down)’ made history as MONOWHALES became the only independent, self-managed band to chart at #2 at alt radio in Canada. Subsequent singles ‘All or Nothing’ and ‘Out With The Old’ both reached the Top 10, culminating in the release of MONOWHALES’ debut album ‘Daytona Bleach’ in March, 2021 via the band’s own label TRUE Records (distributed by Warner Music Canada).

2022 was a landmark year for the band, with highlights including winning a JUNO Award for Breakthrough Group of the Year, supporting Mother Mother on their Canadian tour, playing some of the country’s biggest festivals (including Osheaga, Festival d’ete de Quebec, Hillside, and more), releasing their new album ‘Tunnel Vision’ and headlining their own tour across the country to cap off the year. Tunnel Vision’s first single ‘CTRL^^^’ spent 8 weeks in the Top 10 at alt radio, while subsequent single ‘StuckintheMiddle’ was featured on playlists such as Rock Hard, New Noise, Fierce Femmes, and Rock Your Block.

MONOWHALES are gearing up for a Canada-wide tour as direct support to Grandson this summer, along with festival appearances at Ottawa Bluesfest, Burlington Sound of Music, Sommo Festival and more. New music will follow in August 2023, leading into a headline tour of the USA and Canada this fall.
