Back in Business

So- Monkeys In Space have been promising new music and a resurgence in the scene for sometime .. We have an 18+ song record in the can and have just been.. well dealing with LIFE… too much to get our project back off the ground.
 
I am proud to say that we finally, and for real this time.. are back in the full swing of things and we will be releasing a brand new single called “Consumer” in February 2017- a song that sums up where our heads have been for sometime. We will be posting a new show date soon- an acoustic set in Los Angeles, CA mid-February.. We hope to see all of our old friends!
 
Much Love and thank you for all of your continued support,

“BLACKOUT” IS HERE!!

monkeys_in_space_black_out_final

Monkeys! It’s been a long time a’comin, but we finally released a new song off of our new album “Kill Your Past.” We are proud to introduce “Blackout,” a high-energy power-pop rock song that screams “f**k you” to corporate media – the 24 hour non-news cycle that aims to distract our minds and redirect our hearts to things that plain don’t. matter. Oh, Everybody’s Talkin’ alright, and it’s about time we stop talking and start SHOUTING.

“They say we’re tearing apart at the seams. That’s not what I see, I still believe in WE.”

We are all Monkeys.

F**k it’s good to be back. See you all soon.

Self-Addressed

A blast from the past.. Check out the Monkeys first ever Music Video! “$elf-Addressed”

The MAKING of a Monkeys In Space Album Cover…

monkeysinspacecddesignwithguidlines(3)

Sometimes figuring out and executing the art concept for the Monkeys albums can be just as taxing as recording the actual record itself… Take a look at a few MI$ covers and what they looked like before they had been polished, colored and released to the world.. We are lucky enough to get to collaborate with some incredible artists from all over the world that truly make every Monkeys In Space album a work of art from the inside out. Thank you! to everyone that has supported us and donated their time to the Monkeys Rock n’ Roll campaign over the years- WE SALUTE YOU!
