Denver, Colorado-based trio The Munsens will release their new single “Sacred Ivory” next week, the first output from the group since their 2019-released full-length, Unhanded. The single will be released across all digital platforms next Friday, January 13th.

2022 saw The Munsens performing live sporadically, including supporting Monolord in Denver in March and playing Psycho Las Vegas in August, largely supporting the Unhanded LP. The gnarled new track was recorded in November 2022 with Felipe Patino at Green Door Recording in Denver and is completed with art by Martyrdoom Illustrations. The track will also appear on the band’s second LP, which they plan to record this Spring.

Guitarist/vocalist Shaun Goodwin comments:

“‘Sacred Ivory’ is a song we’ve been working on over the last couple years, reflecting on substance abuse and its powerful stranglehold. It’s one of the shorter tracks from the new album we’ve been writing, but a good representation of what can be expected on that release.”

The band is currently working on summer 2023 dates. Watch for updates to post throughout the year as they complete the new album.
