Miami Monroe was a famous gardener who’s love for pop-punk grew into something much more special that potting a Petunia. He eventually grew so large from all the pop-punk, that his body gave birth to 5 brand new Miami Monroe’s. They went on to become a fast and energetic band, heavily inspired by the likes of Green Day, You Me At Six, The Bouncing Souls, and of course, Snoop Doggy Dogg.
With one E.P. called “Knots & Crosses” (available in iTunes **wink wink**) under their belt, Miami Monroe are currently working on a second E.P. which promises to be faster, heavier and all played with guitars slung even lower. Check out Miami Monroe’s Facebook or give them a listen on Spotify or YouTube. Much Love xx
