National Coming Out Day

We are pleased and proud to announce that our song, “When The Morning Comes” is being used for the campaign video for National Coming Out Day. The video features Irish people telling their stories about how they came out as gay. We are supporters of equality for all people and jumped at the chance to donate our music to this cause. The song deals with fears and worries but includes the idea that things can get better. We thought that it was a good fit. If you missed it, you can find an excerpt of the song in our post below.

When The Morning Comes (excerpt)

Cry Monster Cry is back

Hello Tumblr Friends.

You may have noticed that we have been quiet for some time now. Rest assured that there are reasons for this. We have been extremely busy preparing for a new release.

We are delighted to announce that we are back with new music. For us, following up on the success of The Fallen EP was an exciting and daunting challenge.

We decided to start from scratch, taking a break from live shows to concentrate on honing our songwriting skills. The outcome is a deeply personal record that we feel expands on our sound.

The record was produced by established collaborator Keith Lawless (The Fallen EP) and was mixed by Grammy Award Winning Engineer Guy Massey (Paul McCartney, Ed Sheeran, Manic Street Preachers).

The album is due for release in the new year.

Listen to an excerpt from the track, “When The Morning Comes” here.

The Fallen


Cry Monster Cry - The Fallen

God only knows
how it feels on the outside 
As the Earth dies, 
crumbling through…

Maddened I see
what a fool I can be to the calling,
Bodies falling,
into the blue…

Free The Fallen,
deal the pain
Free the wishing,
and all my falls remain…

Now that I see
that my wings are swiftly breaking,
I am making my way to you.

Falling with me,
as we make our blazing connection,
Our protection is the truth.

Free The Fallen
and here’s the pain.
Free the wishing,
and all my falls remain,
all for you

Debris, we’re falling.
and deal the pain.
Free the wishing,
and all my falls remain.

In your soul,
has it gone cold like a fire thin at night?
A fire thin at night.
When you go,
are you so bold without me?

On Tangled Shores


On Tangled Shores || Cry Monster Cry

Down this road I’m groaning,there we go,
way to go. No one knows. 
And I cannot stop screaming so you know,
oh sweet Lord, where do we go?

You are not the woman that I know,
I adore, On Tangled Shores. 
A shill beneath the flowers bending low,
sweet as gold, and still we go.

Like a warm sweet air, summer sun
I’ll get up and I’ll carry on
and I swear to you when brown leaves fall I’m gone.
