Monarch is an energetic rock band from Bloomington, Illinois. Their genre-blending sound combines nu-metal, punk, alternative rock, and grunge. With heavy riffs and eclectic melodies, Monarch draws inspiration from bands like Korn, 311, and Deftones.

Lead vocalist, guitarist, and lyricist BLAIN MARTIN brings a forceful set of vocals to Monarch's first album. 

Aggressive and deliberate on the drums, MARK RIESENBERG commits to an engaging performance.

SAM MCCULLERS delivers strong, groovy basslines that complete Monarch's eccentric sound.

Together, their instincts for great music and performance surpass their years.

Monarch released their first album, Fever Dream, in 2023. Packed with energetic and angsty songs, the album is the dynamic product of years of dedication.
