Monolithic Cloud Parade is the brainchild of Columbus native Corey Fry. The moniker was adopted in the summer of 2006 while driving to California and writing down long strands of random words in order to make a viable band name. Later that fall, Corey decided to challenge himself to learn the guitar and put the band name to use. For two years he wrote and recorded in the middle room upstairs, eventually realizing that he had upwards of a hundred songs deemed listenable by his brother, mom, and girlfriend, so in the fall of 2008 he set out to find a band. A few weeks later, Monolithic Cloud Parade was reborn as a full fledged five piece collective. The newly formed band decided upon 20 or so songs to learn and began practicing throughout the winter. They played a warm-up show for people in Cleveland in February of 2009 for a friend’s birthday party and then began playing for real in Columbus in March. A debut album, “Children With Wolf Heads” is being released in the summer of 2009. It’s a re-imagining of the earliest songs written by Corey, who was in the process of finishing the recording of this album when the band came together. He decided to go ahead with the album, writing and recording one final song for the full band, as a good intro to what Monolithic Cloud Parade once was and a hint of what they have become.
