Published Mar 17, 2008After eight and a half years together, Brampton, ON's Moneen have parted ways with their close friend and former drummer Peter Krpan who left for personal reasons as he has started a solo project named One Grand Canyon. His replacement comes in the form of Steve Nunnaro, who happens to be a close friend of the bands and played in a few groups in the GTA such as One More Dream and Thunderhawk.
On the bands MySpace blog they explained the separation saying:
After 8 and a half years of sharing stages, bunk beds, and toothbrushes, Moneens Kenny Bridges, Chris Hughes, and Erik Hughes are parting ways with their drummer Peter Krpan. We have spent some of the best years of our lives together, and the time has come for us to follow different paths. However, music does not stop here for any of us!
Peter has a solo project named One Grand Canyon, and will be playing drums with From The Bridge.
As for Moneen, we are 9 songs into writing our next record and have never been so excited. Our new drummer is Mr. Steve Nunnaro. He has been a really great friend of ours since we formed Moneen and has played in many great bands around the Toronto area. Anyone from Brampton will know him as the drummer from One More Dream and Thunderhawk. As gloomy as it is to say goodbye to one great friend, it is nice to be re-united musically with another.
You will be hearing much more from all of us very soon!
In a more positive light the band are working on their new album with nine songs already in the can.
