Today, Nashville's MONA have released their "new anthem" "Thought Provoked" from their forthcoming album 'Soldier On,' out June 22nd via Bright Antenna. Frontman Nick Brown says the stomping, glam-inflected track expresses the feeling of "someone coming to an 'Aha' moment." "It could be a couple, it could be religious, it could be racial, it could be sexual...It's one little moment of getting you to that next page."

"Thought Provoked" follows "Not Alone," deemed "a frenetic, immediate banger with a hook line to die for" by Dork, and the love-positive "Kiss Like A Woman" video. Starring Langley Fox and Madison Paige, the "Kiss Like A Woman" video ignited a huge viral reaction with over 1 million views and counting, all while receiving plaudits from PAPER ("a powerful, sex-positive punch"), Out ("an infusion of soul"), Flaunt ("will make your heart flutter"), and more.
MONA's "high-energy garage rock" (Rolling Stone), featuring Brown's "beautiful, thrusting snarl" (New York Times), has taken them to many places: the UK Top 40, tour dates with Robert Plant, Arcade Fire, Kings
Of Leon and Noel Gallagher, festivals from the UK (Glastonbury + Reading & Leeds) to Australia (Splendour In The Grass) and Japan (Summer Sonic), and TV appearances on The Tonight Show, Conan and Later...with Jools Holland.
