Ground Control Touring Welcomes CMON To Our Touring Roster

Posted 11/13/2019

Ground Control Touring is excited to welcome CMON to our roster!

CMON is Josh Da Costa and Jamen Whitelock, a duo that met in New York where they created the band Regal Degal in 2009. As Regal Degal, they released three EPs and two albums, while touring with bands such as Grizzly Bear, DIIV, and Real Estate. Shortly after their 2015 album Not Now was released, Josh Da Costa moved to Los Angeles where he played drums for Chris Cohen, Drugdealer and produced Dinner’s 2017 album New Work. Although Josh and Jamen were on opposite coasts, Jamen bounced back and forth between New York and Los Angeles, where they’ve been recording and performing as CMON. They combed through old demos, retooling them into spaced out dance music featuring twangy guitar riffs, analog drum machines and lush synth textures. CMON, uninhibited by the limitations of a typical rock band, embrace technology to construct a hybrid sound inspired by the past, present and future. CMON’s music is built for heady crate-diggers and the cutting-edge partygoers, perfect for both the headphones and the club.
