Monster Monster is the second album by American rock band The Almost, released on November 3, 2009. Like the band's debut Southern Weather, Monster Monster was produced by Aaron Sprinkle. Due to the band's lack of a drummer at the time, lead singer Aaron Gillespie played drums for the record. The first single from the album is "Hands" and it was released onto radio stations October 2, 2009, and it has cracked the Top 5 on the Christian Rock charts. The third track on the album, "No I Don't," debuted on the Christian Rock chart on March 5, 2010.
After the recording and mastering of the record, Gillespie stated, "This now feels like a real band. Everyone gave up a piece of his own agenda for the good of the final result. And that's how you end up with something special. They supplied the bricks and we built this house together." The band plans on doing a headlining tour followed by a tour where they support The Used. When speaking of touring, Gillespie noted that "[The Almost] plan on hitting it as hard as we can." Vilardi concurred with "We'd like to leave and not come back for two years."
Monster EP was released on October 6, 2009, one month before the launch of Monster Monster. It was sold exclusively through retail store Hot Topic, the band's website and a tour supporting Monster Monster.
The song "Hands" is the first single, which will include a music video, from Monster Monster and the EP to be released to radio stations. The EP packaging is a double-disc digipak, one of the discs contain the music and the other contains no data at all, but depicts the artwork that Monster Monster will have on the disc's label along with lyrics and printed track listing.
