MONOGAMY PARTY will embark on a 20 date tour, their 2nd in support of their debut release Pus City on Good to Die Records. This 3 week long late summer trek has been deemed the “Hot and Bothered” US Tour 2012, as ever since the Seattle trio returned home from the road back in March they have been itching to get back out there in order to bring their chaotic brand of noise-punk to parts of the US that have yet to experience the raw emotion and crushing power of this NW original's live set.
Beginning with a show in Boise, ID on August 18th, MONOGAMY PARTY will be making their way east hitting the major market cities in the mid-west and along the east coast (tour dates below) before returning home just in time to help label mate's Gaytheist celebrate their record release on September 15th in Seattle.
MONOGAMY PARTY is a band that demands your attention, and this is a tour you DO NOT want to miss, because like everything MONOGAMY PARTY does, you can expect a whirlwind of unfiltered energy and unrivaled intensity. The best you can do is look right into the eye of the storm, and hold on for dear life.

More on MONOGAMY PARTY:
Taking inspiration from former fellow raging NW bass-and-drums acts like Big Business and godheadSilo, vocalist Kennedy Carda, bassist/vocalist Yos-wa, and drummer Keith Tucker have been playing together for only two years. But in that time, MONOGAMY PARTY has managed to cause all manner of commotions in venues up and down the West Coast. They’ve been hailed for their “reckless abandon” on Seattle music blog Sound on the Sound, and The Stranger recently said: “They’re like These Arms Are Snakes meets Karp meets Black Eyes. They’re great.”
Live, MONOGAMY PARTY is a force of nature. Kennedy exerts considerable energy punishing the audience with his body, as he belts out impassioned stream-of-consciousness rants. His band mates follow suit with a powerful, punk-inspired attack. It’s unrelenting, aggressive, and impossible to ignore. The band have also managed to capture this raw energy in the studio, working with producer Chris Proff on a debut 10″ called Pus City released last fall on Seattle imprint Good to Die Records.
