Exploding out of their hometown of Toronto, JUNO Award-winning band MONOWHALES have been putting a new lease on the alt rock genre. They recently completed a Canada-wide tour as direct support to grandson, leading into their headline tour of the USA and Canada this fall.

“When I’m on tour, I get to surround myself with the most accepting and welcoming people on earth,” vocalist Sally Shaar explains. “I feel so heard, so supported. ‘Hear Me Out’ explores how difficult it is for me to live without that outlet.” Their new single is “classic MONOWHALES evolved,” guitarist Zach Zanardo adds. “Emotional, proud, explosive.”

2022 was a landmark year for the band, with highlights including winning a JUNO Award for Breakthrough Group of the Year, supporting Mother Mother on their Canadian tour, playing some of the country’s biggest festivals (including Osheaga, Festival d’ete de Quebec, Hillside, and more), releasing their album Tunnel Vision and headlining their own tour across the country to cap off the year.
