Cory Monteith (Finn) was a man of many talents. We all know the amazing work he did as a singer and actor on Glee prior to his death in July 2013, not to mention his film work. But he was also proud of his band, Bonnie Dune. Now, we'll be able to hear the album that Cory recorded with the band before he passed away.
Cory played drums in the band and had been working on an EP album with them last year. The band will be releasing the album, Miramar, on February 4, 2014, and it is currently available for pre-order on iTunes.
"We had recorded the EP Miramar this last year working around Cory‘s hectic Glee schedule, tracking his drums and background vocals whenever he had free time," the band's lead singer, Justin Wilczynski, tells Just Jared. "We were planning on touring the US and Canada summer 2014 promoting our new EP."
"We never could have imagined something so tragic and devastating could happen to our bandmate, and more importantly, our close friend," Justin continues. "Unsure of how to move on after losing Cory, we have taken our time to finish this album."
"We know he is an irreplaceable part of Bonnie Dune, but we will continue to make music, something he loved to do, and will start playing shows again in 2014, where we made some of our greatest memories together," he adds.
It's great that the band has been able to finish the album and will be able to share something that Cory had been working on with the world. We can't wait to hear it!
