WAITING FOR MONDAY are a fairly new US-based Melodic Rock band fronted by Venezuela born singer Rudy Cardenas and guitarist August Zadra (who’s also the guitarist/ singer in STYX’ Dennis De Young’s solo band). Musically, WAITING FOR MONDAY are fishing in the same musical waters such as the genre’s greats like JOURNEY, STYX and FOREIGNER – and they’re actually coming quite close. The production could be a bit more powerful but the highlights on this good release are the vocal performance and the majority of classy, old-school AOR songs like the opener “Until The Dawn”, “Found On You”, “Make It Better”. Especially Cardenas shines and in some parts manages to create some sort of early Steve Perry feeling (close to his performance on the 1978 “Infinity” album by JOURNEY).

Overall, this is a really promising start by one of the few really new “bands” from this classic genre. Worth checking out if you like aforementioned bands and styles, and new bands with a vintage attitude!
