Making the Song video and a Fall 2012 Monkeys Update!

So we know we have been a bit lacking in content lately.. this video attempts to explain why..

Follow Jeremy Vara and Johnny Rukkus of Monkeys In Space through the Monkeys creative process. Listen to the creation of one of their new songs off of the up and coming Sophomore Release from the Mi$ camp. This is the first video in a mini-series following “Believe” through its creation to its studio release.

Extra Song Notes!

Monkeys In Space hava always been all about the dueling guitars and vocals of Jeremy Vara and myself, coupled with huge drums from Ryan Higginson and insane bass lines carved out by Josh Smith… it just took us a little while to figure that out. We went through quite a bit in the last 4 years and came the closest we have ever come to splitting up shortly after our tour. As I sat down and began writing this song with Jeremy I couldn’t help but feel like we were speaking to each other through the song.. as if to apologize for all of the crap and to say were here now, stronger- lets do this! Stand Tall, Stand Proud, Stay Strong, Stay Loud..

A MonkeyMayhem Production.
