The Almost:
Formed by Underoath drummer Aaron Gillespie along with guitarists Jay Vilardi and Dusty Redmon, bassist Alex Aponte and newest member, drummer Joe Musten. Monster Monster is the follow-up album to their major label debut, Southern Weather, which debuted at #39 on Billboard's Top 200, earned them a Top 10 single at Alternative radio, and a spot on MTV's Discover & Download, was essentially the work of a single individual-Underoath drummer Aaron Gillespie, who wrote all the songs, played all the instruments. Monster Monster represents the culmination of two years of touring, which melded the group's individual talents into a truly collaborative effort.
