Welcome Monarchs to Oblivion Fans

We have a mission: one that is as simple as shining light into dark places.

One thing is certain, within this band, we are all deeply flawed individuals. We may fail more often than we succeed, but we believe a spirit-led life that mirrors Jesus Christ is truly the answer to living a life of freedom from the chains this world offers.

It is only through Jesus that any of us can truly love and find inner peace.

With influences ranging from all eras and musical genres, what is born of this band is heavy riffs, big hooks, melodic vocals, and well-thought-out lyrics.

Mike says it best, “The overall goal is that our music and lyrics translate the understanding that there is a greater purpose than merely existing. We want people to dig into our lyrics, examine what our songs are about, and come out the other side knowing they are not alone in their struggles.”

We released our self-titled debut album on December 14, 2018, and our follow-up album, I Am, on October 30, 2020.
