After a ten-year recording hiatus, all the while remaining the best of friends, this year, the time was just right. Some of the band's personal dust settled - and fittingly, this album became a document of reflection. The band has grown so much, learned so much, and been continually inspired by the effect that they've had on their fans and the people around them - The record reflects that beautifully, and musically sacrifices nothing in terms of the aggro and passion that has now driven them for over 20 years.
'Depression' is an album of overcoming the struggles that we all encounter in one form or another; Seeing the strength that we all possess, though rarely recognizing it. The album is very much an illustration of personal stories from the band, their fans, friends and loved ones.
The first 100 copies will include a limited edition of the poster signed by singer Phill
The vinyl comes in three color designs - BLACK, ULTRA CLEAR and Half n Half neon yellow with lots of NEON/HOT PINK and NEON BLUE splatter on both sides, LIME GREEN/YELLOW base with dark green and black splatter.
Monster Squad was formed in 1997, and after self-releasing a few tapes, a 7", and a CD in the late 90's/early 00's, they've released records with Rodent Popsicle Records, Burnt Ramen Records, Charged Records, Punk Core Records, Glue Rot Records and now Pirates Press Records in the USA (not to mention TSOR Records, Razorblade Music and Voltage Records in Europe).
Constant touring from 2003-2009 across the USA, UK and Europe earned them a massive, and dedicated fanbase - and after a bunch of US dates, they are heading back to the UK, Europe and Russia this summer to reconnect with all their friends abroad.
