Formed in the winter of 2009, Sainthood Reps play a moody mix of post-grunge, hard rock, and post-hardcore. Co-founders Francesco Montesanto and Derrick Sherman grew up together in Long Island, New York, where they developed a mutual interest in bands like Mogwai, Fugazi, and Explosions in the Sky. When Montesanto recorded a collection of demos inspired by those bands, Sherman was quick to join the project, which quickly spiraled into a full-fledged band with the addition of Bradley Cordaro and Jani Zubkovs. After a handful of practices, Sainthood Reps hit the road with All the Day Holiday, kickstarting a lengthy tour that stretched into 2010. As that year drew to a close, the band inked a contract with Tooth & Nail Records and began laying the groundwork for a debut album, Monoculture, which was released during the summer of 2011.
