The Monday Mornings started as the solo Project of Michael Mearns in 2008. After gathering friends and fellow musicians Katie Mosehauer (The Thoughts), Thomas Erak (The Fall of Troy), and Evan Robertson (Catapults), Mearns and the future Monday Mornings headed into the studio to record his first full length record "Swallow Down the Days".
After adding guitarist Brett Berger and playing a handful of shows, the band began performing simply as the Monday Mornings and headed out into the Seattle music scene.
The band headed back into the studio in 2009 to begin their second full-length, pulling in Jay Beaman (Schoolyard Heroes, Just Like Vinyl) to fill in on drums for the studio.
Sadly, just as the band began to gain momentum once again, tragedy struck. In April 2010 Monday Mornings bassist, and long-time friend Evan Robertson lost his battle with addiction and passed away. Mearns and Robertson had been playing music together for the last ten years. Completely destroyed by the loss of their band-mate, all band activity halted as the group struggled to deal with the loss of their long time friend.
In the fall of 2010, after months of hiatus to deal with their bereavement, Mearns and remaining Monday Mornings' Berger and Mosehauer began once again to try to piece the band together. Pulling in friends Ian Williams (the Thoughts) on bass, Andrew Forsman (The Fall of Troy) on drums, and adding guitarist Jim Petosa (Lydia), the band is currently rehearsing to release the long awaited "Fireweed Parade" in January 2011. With a full promotional support, the band is preparing to re-emerge into the Seattle music scene and beyond.
