mmmonika Announces 2020 North American Tour
Fresh off the release of their new single, “Don’t Do It,” mmmonika has announced their 2020 North American Summer Tour Dates, including dates in which they are set to open for Atlantic Records’ Wallows.
mmmonika’s latest release, “Don’t Do It,” leans into their contradictory song writing style, the single serves as an anthem for children of today riddled with anxiety of what the future may or may not hold. LISTEN HERE. Since their debut EP Very American!, mmmonika’s bassist John DeBold won his first GRAMMY® award for his production work on Vampire Weekend’s Father of The Bride.
Beginning May 16th in Costa Mesa, CA, mmmonika is set to embark on a 23 show tour. Tickets will go on sale Friday March 13th at 10AM at each respective venue’s local time. Dates including Wallows are currently on sale.
mmmonika is what you’d get if you turned a losing game of Jenga into a boy band. The Los Angeles based quintet is comprised of John DeBold (bass), Gabe Durastanti (guitar), Grant Milliken (keyboard), Nick Velez (drums) and Ryan Yoo (vocals, guitar). The group makes happy music for sad people through playful melodies and contradicting lyrics. mmmonika has caught the eye of The Fader, Ones To Watch, Earmilk and more, by throwing away the macho narrative and embracing freedom of expression. mmmonika’s music exists not to offer answers, but to make it okay to ask the questions.
