MonstrO is an alternative band composed of former Still Rain, Danzig and Bloodsimple drummer Bevan Davies, former Bloodsimple, Medication and Skrew bassist Kyle Sanders, former Torche guitarist Juan Montoya and guitarist and vocalist Charlie Suarez formerly of Sunday Driver. Their first show was April 24, 2010 at Lenny's Bar in Atlanta, Georgia.
The band draws upon music such as ‘60s psychedelica, shoegaze, and heavy metal, as well as other personal influences. MonstrO's guitarist Juan Montaya stated, "The music has elements of everything we grew up with—Led Zeppelin, Peter Gabriel, Queen, Soundgarden, Jane’s Addiction, and Metallica. However, we don’t follow trends."
It was announced on March 30, 2011, that MonstrO had signed with Vagrant Records and is recording their debut album with Alice in Chains vocalist William DuVall. The album is slated for release on September 6, 2011, on Vagrant Records.
