Monks of MellonwahAustralian alternative rock group Monks of Mellonwah recently won the “Best International Rock Act” award at the 2012 Los Angeles Music Awards on November 15. Currently, the band are touring throughout the California and New York regions, including shows at the iconic Whiskey A Go-Go in Los Angeles and the Mercury Lounge in New York City.

The Monks have had a whirlwind of a year since their “Best Indie Rock Band” win at the 2012 Artists in Music Awards earlier in 2012 and the Summer release of their new EP “Neurogenesis”, which received very positive reviews. The music video for “Neverending Spirit” landed the Monks airplay on the MTV network and a heightened popularity worldwide.

The new full-length album will find them working with famed producer Keith Olsen for 3 tracks, and self-producing the rest. The album is due for release in early 2013. Monks of Mellonwah full tour dates are below (dates subject to change. Visit for updated dates):
