Tucked away just north of the Bay Area’s iconic punk scene is Sonoma County, where bands like Bracket, Tsunami Bomb, and many others blossomed in the 1990s. Arriving late to the party is One Armed Joey, who have been promoting the once-forgotten melodic punk of the area since 2014. Since then, the trio has played all over the state, self-released two EPs, won four Bohemian NorBay Music Awards for Best Punk Band, and have now released their first full-length album, “Happiness, To Me”, on Sell the Heart Records.


Modern Monsters is not easy listening… they are a heavy rock from the Bay Area in California. The music is full of high energy drumming, heavy guitar riffs, blazing solos and ambient soundscapes, hard thumping melodic bass lines, and vocals that flow from melodic and thought provoking into screams of release. All this takes the listener to a journey exploring the darkest parts of existence and leaves us feeling like we can come out on the other side.
