MICHAEL MONROE RELEASES NEW SINGLE 'EVERYBODY'S NOBODY'

I LIVE TOO FAST TO DIE YOUNG NEARS RELEASE AND NEW LIVE DATES ANNOUNCED

Michael Monroe releases the anthemic new single, ‘Everybody’s Nobody’, taken from the upcoming album, I Live Too Fast To Die Young, set for release via Silver Lining Music on June 10th, 2022.

“It’s a tongue-in-cheek tale about letting go of the ‘good old days’ and finding the things that make you happy here and now” offers Monroe on the new single. “A lot of artists in our position seem content to bask in the glow of nostalgia instead of striving to move forward. And since they never ‘made it big’, they’d rather claim that they never really wanted to.”
“The title can also be about your own self-worth” adds Monroe, “everybody’s at least been a nobody and that’s already an achievement in itself” laughs Monroe.

The single is accompanied by a high-octane, feel-good video showing the band swaggering the streets like rock-punk poets, storytellers who’ve seen it all!

“The punk is always gonna be there, it’s part of my thing and our sound,” furthers Monroe on the album “and overall I think we’ve really renewed the band’s sound in the best possible way without getting away from who and what we are.”
Continues Monroe: “I always wanted to maintain the excitement and curiosity of life, to keep that mind of a child and excitement about stuff and not get complacent, not get tired. Of course, I can be cynical and I’m sarcastic, and I haven’t had the best of luck, but then again who does? And I still have a lot of things to be happy about. It doesn’t take much for me to be happy. To be able to do what I love doing the most, and make a living out of it, that’s a gift.”

With I Live Too Fast To Die Young, it is clear that Michael Monroe is striding into the summer with a triumphant -and perhaps most importantly, defiant- roar to offer you a chance to let your hair down (or up!) and to once again enjoy the freedom of joyous celebration and expression.

The band, who will perform with Alice Cooper later this month, are due to appear at a string of summer shows, including the recently announced London (UK) dates, July 1st and 2nd, as special guests to Guns N’ Roses.
