Members: Matt, Sterling, Daniel, Wes, Robbie
Formed in late 2001, Winston-Salem's Monday in London sought out a path few in the region have chosen. Coming from the hardcore/metal scene that covers most of North Carolina's underground scene, members Matthew Schwartz (vocals), Sterling Plemmons (guitar, vocals), Daniel Allen (guitar, piano), John Brehm (bass) and Robbie Adkins (drums) sought out to give the music world a breath of fresh air by combining the intensity of their hardcore upbringings with melody and hooks. This new found mixture has undoubtedly compelled fans of Monday In London to think twice about what a band should be, and how music should make them feel.
Shortly after their freshman release, "The Red Machine" (Indianola Records), recorded with their original singer, the band embarked on several different tours with the likes of Jupiter Sunrise, Tora Tora Torrance, Days Like These, and Salem. They have also shared the stage with The Juliana Theory, Fairweather, Bayside, Beloved, Liars Academy, and Copeland. Having there original singer leave them in the middle of a very successful tour left the band going home to write and refocus. They decided that the only choice they had was to push forward and write the best songs they have ever written. Adding new singer Matthew Schwartz to the newly refocused band was the final piece that they had been missing. With a newly revamped live show and new songs that are far beyond anything that anyone has heard from them in the past, Monday In London is ready to take things to the next level.
The spirit of their sonically enchanting new demo is a testament to what sets Monday In London apart and during their extensive upcoming tours, they will prove it to their listeners within seconds.
