Rock band Telltale have released a brand new single and video 'MONSTER'. The single is taken off the bands recently announced debut full-length record, Telltale, which is set to be released on 17th May via Rude Records. Several years in the making, the album follows previous EPs Good intentions, Timeless Youth, and Lie Your Way Out. It features the recently released tracks “Otherside”, “Cardinals”, “EDDY”, and “kissinginacarcrash”.

Speaking about the new single the band said "MONSTER is a track that we couldn’t be more clear about, it’s pure dad rock. Our dads all raised us on various rock and metal artists and we all carry a love for some of their favourite bands with us in the music we create. This song is for them and all the dads and father figures out there who share their love of music with the next generation."

Adding about the album the band said “It’s taken us three EPs and over half a decade to finally create the album we’ve always wanted. This is Telltale. If there is one major takeaway from the record, it’s that escaping into the isolation of your vices isn’t a solution to the feeling of disconnection.

The album will be available, in addition to the limited to 150 vinyl, exclusively at
