David Knottnerus Why do I love this album? Ben is a phenomenal guitar player and Jeff is an amazing drummer, together they create a sound that is so primal, urgent,and slick, that I can't believe I have not been listening to it my whole life.

darrelp Was introduced to these guys via their in-studio appearance on KEXP (which is as amazing as this album is). If you like your hair metal/KISS/stoner rock all mixed together with a huge helping of reverb in the side, this is for you. It rocks.

Matt Brown As with all the other great loves of my life, I have no idea how or why anyone else would feel the same way about this band as I do. Layered screaming guitars, MASSIVE drums, vocal gymnastics of the old school - it is all here, uncompromising and deliciously crass, delivered with a wink and a gentle head-butt to the face. Music that feels like it was written and performed specifically for me, and who the hell else should any band play for? You? Maybe.

Monolith will stand as Hobosexual’s masterwork, but for only as long as they hold back from releasing their next record. If you’ve never heard them before, start here.

marcusgreybeard Just picked this beauty up on Bandcamp. Only 2 tracks available for listening, but they were both solid enough and interesting enough in their diversity of influences and tone, that I just had to hear the entire album. I love it when I find an artist that appeals to the things I dig about music, but doesn't sound like just another replay of 25 other bands I've heard. From what I've heard so far, I think this might be one of those artists. Good stuff Hobosexual. Thank you! Favorite track: Trans Am Sunday.

Christine Mitchell Nanu Nanu. This album is a great continuation of Hobosexual's rocking trajectory. Hard, melodic, and hilarious to boot, with all of the eighties references that you know and love. Favorite track: VHS or Sharon Stone.

about

Monolith is a concept album, and Hobo's first LP in 4 years. It is a direct follow up to 2013's sci-fi concept LP, "Hobosexual II".

Monolith directly concerns outrage culture and the effect social media and technology have had on the human condition; from unfiltered constant bouts of sociopathic rage as acceptable public exchange, to blatant narcissistic affluence and fashion obsession (touted as admirable (or even artistic)), and the wreckage and decline of collective intellect these attitudes leave in their wake.

The "concept" therein is explored via retrospect of a person losing their own mind, in the midst of (and as a direct result of) said aforementioned "culture".


The work as a whole was composed and keyed to be presented in final form as a continuum. Please note that physical mediums, such as CD and Vinyl Copies will reflect this singular "cross-faded" vision throughout.

...this is also the most carefully produced, meticulously assembled, "Hair Metal" thing we've ever done.

We hope you have as much fun listening to it, as we did putting it together this last 3 years.
