MONOWHALES Live From The El Mocambo

From The Band:

“We’ll be playing the new and improved El Mocambo for two live-streamed shows this fall! No matter where you are in the world, you’ll have the opportunity to join us for our first live show of 2020! We’ve missed performing for all of you so much over the past many months, and we’re so excited to get to play our new single “All or Nothing” LIVE for the first time since it was released. Grab yourself a ticket and come hang out with us, we can’t wait to see you!”


Pop-infused indie rock band MONOWHALES release a brand new single titled “All or Nothing” today, produced by JUNO Award nominated Producer Ryan Worsley (Dear Rouge, Brave Shores) and mixed by JUNO Award winning Mix Engineer Jason Dufour (July Talk, Tokyo Police Club). A thundering anthem about taking risks and believing in the power of your own will, “All or Nothing” is the follow-up to the band’s hit single “RWLYD (Really Wanna Let You Down)” which broke the radio record for highest charting unsigned band by hitting #2 on the Mediabase Canada Alternative Rock Chart in early 2020. “All or Nothing” is available to stream and purchase now.

Drummer Jordan Circosta hopes listeners “feel empowered to double down on their dreams and be willing to do whatever it takes to make them happen.” The trio asserts that “‘All or Nothing’ is about the attitude we bring to everything we do as MONOWHALES. As an independent band, we risk it all to bring our art to our fans, and this song tells the story of overcoming the obstacles and naysayers that have stood in our way since the beginning. We are going to make it no matter what it takes, and we’re going to do it our way.”

Recorded in British Columbia last fall, MONOWHALES toured the country on their way from Ontario to the studio sessions. Before heading out, “I wrote the beginnings of this song at home on my acoustic guitar,” says Circosta. “I had just gotten out of a long term relationship and was about to quit my job to work on MONOWHALES full time. I was taking a lot of risks, but there was no doubt in my mind that I was on the right path. I showed it to Zach who wrote the arrangement and finished the melodies. It resonated with the band right away, with Sally really making it her own right out of the gate with those thundering yeah’s.” This formidable 3-piece have been working diligently the past few years on their songwriting, live show, and building their fanbase, currently putting the finishing touches on a new record produced by Worsley
