Rochester-based “Futurepunk” band The Plague has released their full-length album Hope For The F.U.T.U.R.E and teamed up with Alternative Press Magazine for the exclusive stream. Frontman David Adam Monroe wrote an in-depth essay alongside the premiere, where he went into detail about his struggle with addiction and how recovery helped him find his love for music again.
Monroe told AP “Our goal is to instill hope and a sense that you aren’t alone. We all deserve love, we all need support, and no one should have to do it alone.
Hope For The F.U.T.U.R.E was released October 13th via Recover Records, a label owned and operated by the band themselves. Monroe is no stranger to the business side of music, producing records alongside Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols) and Earl Cohen (Lady Gaga, Pink, Jessica Simpson), and serving as an A&R rep for Victory and Torque records. Before that, Monroe led the band Third Estate who appeared on Warped Tour from 02-06 and toured with many established acts such as Story Of The Year, Yellowcard, and My Chemical Romance.
After 20 years in the music industry, Monroe sought to create a project that would spread a message of hope, and to rebel against these growing self-destructive ideals. “In the early days, most of my experience in the music industry seemed plastic and fake. Every time I got involved in something that seemed like it was going to take off, I was very concerned about the situation. Music is important to me, but so is being kind and loving. I didn’t feel I could make the world a better place with those opportunities, whereas working in a basement on this record has already done more for me spiritually than any work in the past.” says Monroe.
