Time for the second full length album from the great quartet Monastir from Gävle. On a summer vacation, Monastir was founded by childhood friends Marcus Olsson and Magnus Björk. Back in Sweden Fanny Wedmark and Björn Olszewski got drafted and the grain of sand from the Sahara Desert became a solid rock.
“Good things never last” is also released in Japan by Mediafactory and the band has visited the major cities of the country for a couple of successfully concerts. There’s also a lot of interest for Monastir’s music in American TV series, for example L-Word.
One of the tracks from the album, talking about "So defeated", made it as one weeks Powerplay on the national radio YLEX in Finland. This means that the song were heard at least thirteen times during a five days period.
When their debut album came the papers dubbed Monastir to "the future of Swedish indie rock". This time they’re even better! Monastir means energy, intensity and attitude. Join the followers or take heed.
