The Plague returns with a vengeance in hard hitting new Rock single “Right Back Down.”
Electrifying and fierce the single is a firestorm from the start. Thrashing guitars, brutal vocals, and heavy rhythms, and synthesizers combine to form a turbulent atmosphere. With his signature blend of brutal vocals and emotionally charged, provocative lyrics The Plague explores a relationship that ends suddenly and without warning, showcasing his transformative understanding of the human condition.
“This song is about a relationship that was very important to me that left with out ever saying what was wrong,” explains The Plague. “Not only was it painful but totally unexpected. This song is about the frustration that they did not talked to me about what was going on and disbelief that they chose a cowards way out.”
The Plague is the brainchild of producer/engineer David Adam Monroe, a pioneer of Future Punk. The Plague’s post-apocalyptic themes portray the struggles of being human, encouraging people to break free of the superficial and to know they are not alone.
David has been playing music from an early age, highly encouraged by his parents, he received an electric guitar at age ten and took off emulating his favorite bands at the time; Greenday, Smashing Pumpkins, and other 90’s rock bands. His career took off at age 16 when a promoter got his high school band on the Van’s Warped Tour.
As a producer/engineer, David has produced records with many artists including Glen Matlock from the Sex Pistols and multi-platinum engineer Earl Cohen. As a musician, he has toured internationally–including 4 years on Van’s Warped Tour— and has played with bands such as Tony Levin, My Chemical Romance, Story of the Year, NoFx, The Used, Yellow Card, Three Days Grace, and many more. ThePlague‘s debut album Hope For the F.U.T.U.R.E. was released independently in 2017.
In 2018 The Plague remixed Circle Of Dust’s “Embracing Entropy” (feat. Celldweller), through artist-owned record label FiXT. The Plague eventually signed to FiXT in 2022 and is re-releasing the debut album with remastered tracks, new art, and bonus tracks throughout the year, ahead of a new album coming in 2023.
“My goal with The Plague was to make futuristic Christian rock, when I was producing bands in Boston, my assistant showed me Celldweller and said, “This guy is dope and reminds me of you!” I chased Celldweller’s blend of synths and guitars, and that exploration process helped me discover my own sound. When I finished the record I emailed James (FiXT Manager) with the spirit of a little brother and said, “Hey James, look! I self-produced a futuristic rock record that I’m releasing on my label! You guys inspired this!” By some wonderful miracle he was excited too!” – The Plague
“Right Back Down” is out now from FiXT.
