“ONE IN A MILLION” GAINING AT ROCK RADIO FIRST SINGLE PICK FROM NEW ALBUM, BREAK THROUGH THE SILENCE, RELEASED SEPT. 22nd ON ISLAND

Homecoming release show for new album on Oct. 9th at Lupo’s in Providence, RI

(September 29, 2009 New York, NY) Island Records Action rock group Monty Are I returns to the road this fall on one of their biggest cross-country tours, a 7-week trip in support of their brand new second album BREAK THROUGH THE SILENCE, released September 22nd. The 34-city tour, co-starring Ohio’s Hawthorne Heights, opens November 2nd at the Grog Shop in Cleveland, and wraps up December 20th at Southgate House in Newport, Kentucky.

The tour will be preceded by the official album release show for BREAK THROUGH THE SILENCE on October 9th at Monty Are I’s favorite hometown venue, Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel At The Strand in Providence, Rhode Island. (Please see tour dates below.)

Three-years after the release of their debut album Wall Of People in August 2006, Monty Are I has broken through the silence with BREAK THROUGH THE SILENCE. The new album’s first single pick, “One In A Million,” is winning friends at Rock radio formats, and has picked up over 26,000 plays since the full-length track debuted on the band’s website, http://www.myspace.com/montyarei. The new album is produced by Matt Squire (who worked on Wall Of People, as well as Panic! At The Disco, Boys Like Girls, 3oh3!), and Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Good Charlotte).

Monty Are I comprised of Steve Aiello (vocals, lead guitar), Mike Matarese (bass), Andrew Borstein (keyboards, synthesizer, trombone, sequencing), and identical twins Justin (drums) and Ryan Muir (vocals, trumpet, guitar) arrived at the Island Def Jam Music Group in 2006, with three Vans Warped Tours under their belt. Since then, they’ve toured nonstop with My Chemical Romance, Taking Back Sunday, the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Saving Abel, and more! In addition, Monty Are I’s “In This Legacy” (a track from Wall Of People) was also featured in the Xbox/PS2 games ATV, Offroad Fury 4 and Tony Hawk’s Project 8.
