Scene Point Blank is pleased to host a stream of Trust No One, the second full-length from Chicago punks The Mons.
The band rips, rages and waxes philosophic on songs with titles such as “Trust No One,” “Waste Of Time,” “The Man,” “God Hates The Mons,” and “Party Down.” Over 15 angry songs in 20 minutes, the album shows a strong SoCal hardcore influence with underlying subtleties that span genres.

It seems like Worriers nailed down their sound on day one, when they rose from the ashes of The Measure S.A.. The Lauren Denitzio-fronted group plays a melodic and quirky style of indie-poppish-punk.
