Sauna Youth and Monotony to take over Salford

Next week will see the same group of musicians perform two gigs as totally different bands when Sauna Youth and Monotony arrive in Salford.

The London-based punk-rockers will bring two nights of high-octane entertainment to the city at the Eagle Inn.

Monday (October 6th) will see them perform under their more familiar guise as Sauna Youth, showcasing tracks from the album Dreamlands and hopefully some new material.

Then the following evening (October 7th), the band will return to perform again – this time as their alter-egos Monotony.

The project was born out of an innocent bit of instrument swapping in the studio, which eventually led to a whole new band and a self-titled debut that sounds like a grizzly mutation of Sauna Youth’s more established output. Standout ‘Back to the Castle’ also took our Track of the Day back in August.

Fans can purchase individual tickets for each gig for £5.50 advance or opt for a joint ticket that allows access to both events for just £8.

But if you can’t make it, fear not because right before both shows, Sauna Youth and Monotony will be performing live sessions for Marc Riley on BBC 6Music.
