Bands are a dime a dozen, that sad fact remains indisputable. Second only to talent, a lack of originality is all that stands to keep a good band from becoming great. And as ever-growing multitudes of future fans get to hear Case of the Mondays for the first time, the fact that THIS band’s got it all becomes more and more common knowledge. Case of the Mondays separate themselves from the norm by coating catchy punk, ska, rock and reggae riffs with clever lyrics and contagious melodies.
Case of the Mondays has had several noteworthy accomplishments in their 6 year career. Appearing live as the opening act for Finger Eleven on the USS New Jersey for “Band on a Battleship, on Jaxon’s Local Shots Volume 2 and on the airwaves countless times are only three ways that legendary Philadelphia rock station 93.3 WMMR has embraced the band, helping establish them at the forefront of the Philadelphia original music scene. Opening the Philadelphia leg of the Ska is Dead Tour, becoming Zippo Hot Tour semi-finalists, and enjoying radio play on other Philadelphia stations like 104.5 WRFF and 94.1 WYSP further validate just how engaging their songs really are.
Case of the Mondays has also opened up for many other national acts including legendary ska band The Toasters, Streetlight Manifesto, The Pietasters, Mustard Plug, and Gym Class Heroes. They have performed at such renowned Philadelphia venues as the Trocadero, Grape Street Philadelphia, the North Star Bar, the Theater of the Living Arts and also the Knitting Factory in New York, not to mention the fact that they were the first rock band ever to rock on the Battleship New Jersey. The band remains intimate with their fan base, naturally leading to massive internet success including topping the charts on Garageband.com and piling up the loyal fans on Myspace.com. This has pushed the success of their album and merchandise sales worldwide.
Having recently released their debut full-length album Look At How Awesome We Are, the limelight saturates their every move reassuring critics and fans that success will only continue to unfold before them. Major label attention is naturally imminent and although they trudge forward modestly, even the air around them is teeming with promise.
