MONK TAMONY Share New Track “Leaders” from Self-Ttield Debut via SoundCloud

Monk Tamony, the NYC rock outfit, have released the next installment off their forthcoming self-titled debut EP, “Leaders”.



NYC indie duo, Monk Tamony, officially releases the next installment, “Leaders”, off their forthcoming self-titled debut EP, Monk Tamony. The official music video for “Leaders” was shot at Overthrow Gym on Bleecker Street in New York City. Overthrow Gym is inside of a building that was once the home base to prominent counterculture leaders. The Yippie party’s headquarters were based there, and anarchists like Abbie Hoffman would often frequent the building as well. Inspired by social and political activism, Monk Tamony filmed the “Leaders” video on this years Super Tuesday. The band notes, “As for the boxing motif, in connection with the current political climate, you can form your own opinion there!”

Comprised of TJ Rosenthal (vocals, guitar) and Joe Zdaa (drum, vocals), the stellar, two-piece band produces super charged, hard-driving rock with unmistakable New York City attitude. Zdaa and Rosenthal first met in 2002 at Dark Room, a discreetly hidden bar on Ludlow Street on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. “Joe was a bartender,” describes Rosenthal. “And I was a DJ and a regular patron. It was always a scene, and I’d go some nights just make sure I wasn’t missing anything.”
