Calling All Monsters

Their approach to songwriting is straightforward and earnest, full of driven, guitar-heavy anthems that are melodic, catchy and heavy-hitting.

The band features Bill Chartier on guitars and vocals, John Nespeco on bass, Matthew Troy on guitar and vocals and Matt Yetka on drums. Calling All Monsters draw comparisons to other indie rock groups like Built to Spill or Archers of Loaf.

Armed with searing vocals and soaring hooks, Calling All Monsters say they make "fight music for those who like to be angry, and love music for those who like to be loved and regular style music for the people who don't want to stand out too much."

The featured song from Calling All Monsters' album, The Traps That Work Best is "The Station Agent."
