Bay Area-based Monophonics announced their upcoming full-length Sage Motel, out May 13th via Colemine Records. The psychedelic soul band, Monophonics, cordially invites you to attend the grand re-opening of the once thriving, once vibrant establishment, the legendary Sage Motel. A place where folks experience the highs and lows of human existence. A place where big dreams and broken hearts live, where people arrive without ever knowing how they got there. It’s where individuals find themselves at a crossroads in life. The album announcement comes with a video for the first single “Warpaint,” which is directed by Kassy Mahea.
Sage Motel is the Monophonics’ fifth studio album since 2012. Once again the album is produced by bandleader Kelly Finnigan. “Warpaint,” the leading single from Sage Motel, reveals the vices of each resident and confronts the struggles of substance abuse and addiction. Their warpaint becomes compulsory to face the day, tolerate the struggle, get through the hardest parts of the world, humanity, life and to fight the good fight. Cloaked in heavy riffs and robust vocals, “Warpaint” gives you the first look through the doors of the Sage Motel.
