ON MONROBOT’S TRIPLE J UNEARTHED PAGE, THE BAND’S ‘ABOUT US’ READS A LITTLE SOMETHING LIKE THIS..“HELLO. WE ARE MONROBOT, A 4 PIECE ROCK BAND FROM NEWCASTLE. WE COLOUR OUTSIDE THE LINES, WE KNOW NO RULES WHEN IT COMES TO WRITING AND PLAYING MUSIC, AND WE HOPE YOU ENJOY HEARING WHAT WE LIKE CREATING.” I LIKE IT.

How would you describe the music that you make?       Hard rock, with elements of progressive rock, post rock, post-hardcore and 90’s rock embedded all the way through. What are you working on at the moment?  We’re currently doing a run of shows around NSW throughout February, March and April to promote our debut single “Supernova Rollover”, and are working on the final touches for our album, which we’re anticipating to have released mid-year. Where is your next event?     10th April @ The Great Northern Hotel, Newcastle w/ Melbournites Greenthief and local mates Model Youth. & 12th April @ The Small Ballroom, Islington w/ Sydneysiders Far Away Stables, and Sound Of Seasons When is the next release?   We’re aiming to have our first full length release out mid-2014, along with another single and accompanying film clip. There currently is no deadline set, but stay tuned! Who are your biggest influences?     Omar Rodríguez-López, Brian Molko, Steven Wilson, Matt Bellamy, Josh Homme, Billy Howerdel, George Harrison, Jim Morrison. If you could play anywhere where would it be?     The Enmore in Sydney, The Quarry Amphitheatre in Perth, or Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado!
