Fresh off their run with Music Saves Lives on Vans Warped Tour, Rochester-based "Futurepunk" band The Plague has released their latest single "Will You Ever Know Me" (originally premiering with HM Magazine). The track is a very personal story about frontman David Adam Monroe's relationship with his father.
"He was diagnosed with cancer at a time where our relationship was not at a strong point," says Monroe. "The song is about grieving the loss of a relationship, when part of you wants to keep hope alive."
"Will You Ever Know Me" will be on The Plague's debut album Hope For The F.U.T.U.R.E, releasing on October 13th via Recover Records. While out on Warped Tour, the band distributed 22,000 samplers including their singles "Danger," "Not The Only One," and "Fallen." The proceeds were donated to the Music Saves Lives foundation.
Before starting The Plague, Monroe led the band Third Estate who appeared on Warped Tour from 02-06 and toured with many established acts such as Story Of The Year, Yellowcard, and My Chemical Romance. After their disbandment, Monroe began producing records alongside Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols) and Earl Cohen (Lady Gaga, Pink, Jessica Simpson), and served as an A&R rep for Victory and Torque records.
"Will You Ever Know Me" is available track now on iTunes.
