About

The band was formed by vocalist Melany Dantes and Dave Bradbury in 2003. Since then the band has built up a solid reputation in the South East region as being "one of the better unsigned acts to emerge from the scene."

Labelling this band with a genre has never been easy, as each member draws individual influences and styles from many genres.

Trash Monroe were born in 2003, based on a strong ideal to write, perform and create from the heart and to mean it. The unwritten and even unspoken (until now) point of the band is to use a wide variety of ideas within a collective, to embrace it and enjoy the creative freedom that comes from ‘not being pigeon holed’. It is accepted that with this comes the uncertainty of finding a ‘niche market’ but this is something that should only be of concern to a band who is unsure of their direction.

Trash Monroe have released to date :

‘Ornament’ EP produced by John Fryer {Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, HIM and Cradle of Filth.}

‘Batesian Mimicry’ EP

‘Shooting From the Lips & Other Crimes of Passion.’

'Addiction Of Duplicities part 1.'

'Addiction Of Duplicities part 2'


“Trash Monroe’s songs are dangerously infectious little beasts of raw feelings and poisonous beauty….. Under the brash attitude lies an emotional and fragile soul…. Unashamedly melodic” (Alternative Magazine)

The band have been featured in such publications as Kerrang, Alternative, Devolution and Metal Hammer as well as a slew of fanzine’s including Bubble-gum Slut, Noisy Zine and Panic for those of you who don’t just read ‘the big boys’.

“Shooting From The Lips and Other Crimes of Passion is a sweeping, moody, aggressive wonderful album from a band truly on top of their game. “ (Panic ’zine)

In closing the reiterated point remains to FEEL something.
