Formed in late 2009 by school friends Vikram Kaushik, Joseph de la Hoyde, Joshua Baissari and John de la Hoyde, Monks of Mellonwah represents a collision of musical personalities, creating a timeless fusion of alternative, indie and film-inspired rock/pop, drawing from a diverse range of core musical influences which include Pink Floyd, Muse, Led Zeppelin, Coldplay, Arctic Monkeys and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

After releasing a trio of EPs — Stars are Out (2010), Neurogenesis (2012) and Sky & the Dark Night (2013), Monks of Mellonwah teamed up with Grammy-winning producer Keith Olson (Fleetwood Mac, Ozzy Osbourne) and acclaimed engineer Mark Needham (The Killers, Imagine Dragons) for their long-awaited debut album Turn the People (released March 2014 via Gatcombe Music Pty Ltd.)

Since its release, the album has received critical acclaim, including press reviews and features as well as through syndicated shows such as Passport Approved.
