Newest Album, “The Monster” Released!

With the release of his upcoming album “The Monster”, Sam Gleason brings
an alternative indie edge to pop rock. Lush with layered guitars,
catchy hooks, an array of percussion, and fun break downs, the album
reaches into a classic rock aesthetic at times. Although the album is
diverse within itself, there is a glue that holds this album together
and it comes down to a familiar but different vocal style and lots of
different kinds of pop strung into one record. Most importantly, the
album never loses touch with the emotional platform great songs are
built from.

The first single, “Put Away The Monster”, is an up beat indie rock
song with attitude. The song feels like a cross between an 80’s classic
rock song, and today’s breed of indie pop songs hitting the radio
waves.

“The term “monster” refers to the sides of us that we choose to hide
away from the world because they are considered unacceptable by
whatever society we may live in. The song title is a play on how we
are taught to be insecure about these parts of us, which compels us to
hide these “monsters” or “skeletons” away from everyone simply because
they do not correlate with our definition of normalcy,” explains Sam
of his single.

Although the single speaks volumes for the album, to get the full
understanding of where Sam is coming from, it should be heard in its
entirety. The record gives the ideal of a concept album, and each song
tells a story in relation to the next.

“The whole album mainly consists of songs that have to do with inner
personal conflict, such as hiding away parts of us we’re insecure
about,” says the songwriter of the album.
