Cory Monteith’s music will be heard once again as his band plans to release the album that he had been working on before his death. The now three-member Bonnie Dune will be finishing the work that they started with the “Glee” star.
“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,” lead singer Justin Wilczynski told JustJared.com exclusively. “We were planning on touring the U.S. and Canada summer 2014 promoting our new EP.”

Monteith, who died in July at the age of 31, was the drummer of the band, which also includes Seth Roberts on guitar, Joshua Kerr on bass, and Jason Massey as the band’s producer/co-writer.
“We never could have imagined something so tragic and devastating could happen to our bandmate, and more importantly, our close friend. Unsure of how to move on after losing Cory, we have taken our time to finish this album,” Wilczynski continued.
“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.”
The EP “Miramar” will come out on February 4, but is currently available for pre-order on iTunes. Fans who pre-order will also instantly receive the band’s new single “Endless Summer.”
