Modern rock band Monday Morning have begun recording for their second album, expected for release in mid-2007.
Monday Morning's national debut album, Fool's Paradise, released in February this year, earned a #1 on the CHR chart for an entire month with its second single '?Wonder Of It All?, which gained international radio play across Europe and Australia, and was the most requested song for over a month on South Africa's premiere radio station, 5FM. The single is still receiving consistent radio play across the US.
The first single ?Sunshine? and its video was widely played on rock radio and video shows across the US, including high rotation on MTV Latin America. Alternative Addiction summed Fool?s Paradise up when they called it "a classy debut" and "one of the year?s essential albums".
Vocalist Derrek Stipe says it was the band?s many song ideas that led to them beginning recording for their second album. ?We really felt it was time to get them down and get the creative process in motion. We set up a basic Pro-Tools rig with a Digi 002 in our rehearsal room and before we knew it we had 10 songs tracked, and we have at least another 10 close to completion! It has definitely been artistically refreshing!"
Monday Morning manager Sid Blythe says the band has many exciting plans for 2007, including spending time touring the west coast, as well as getting across to Europe. "They have gone from strength to strength this year and the live show is better than ever. We did a great photo shoot in New York and have just finished off a new e-card.??
