BRAND SPANKIN’ NEW SINGLE RELEASE: CONSUMER

Monkeys In Space have just release their latest single off of the upcoming summer 2017 release Kill Your Past.

Consumer is a song forour times- the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.. Consumer delves into the consciousness of a man torn apart buy societies expectations- the rampant consumerism that every family in America now wields, where the lines of wants and needs are drastically blurred, how is a middle class man suppose to provide for his family in a world where a yearly $500 phone purchase has now become the new norm..

This is a good man, a hardworking man who provides for his family.. but with wants now outweighing needs in our society you have three choices: grin, bare it, work your fingers to the bone to buy that new iPhone, envelop your family is massive credit card debt, or cheat, steal, lie or die- hopefully one of those three jobs you have will provide some sort of life insurance benefits, right? 

I assure you, the song is not as grim as the story behind it makes it sound! Check it out here: Please leave us some love and be sure to keep an eye out for Kill Your Past- Slated for Summer 2017 release, Finally!

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,

The MAKING of a Monkeys In Space Album Cover…

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!

Its OFFICIAL- Monkeys In Space Name New Album!

Monkeys In Space finish tracking for new album

Its OFFICIAL! The name of the upcoming Monkeys In Space full length album has finally been announced.. As this record has morphed into a nostalgic blend of old bangers and an all grown up touch of new… so much… be it good or bad, has happened between now and our last release- Flying Under the Influence. We feel we have truly grown as individuals, as musicians and as a band.. for better or for worse is still up for debate. We can all agree that the chance of a better life can always be found in the ever so changing future we will soon enough realize. With this- we feel “Kill Your Past” as it has been officially named, best represents all the euphoric  times and the ugly in addition to that constant drive to improve upon ones self. “Kill Your Past” can be taken in both the figurative and literal sense as we have realized it is a necessary thing to leave your past behind if you are ever to grow and fully embrace this constantly evolving space within which we occupy.. and for some (myself included) this can be a most difficult thing..  At any point on any given day you might find yourself coming face to face with a previous version of yourself, be it bumping into old friends, having dinner with your over critical parents.. walking away from that same old argument with your significant other.. could you Kill Your Past- To Save Your Future?

02/26/2014 – “Kill Your Past, Save Your FUTURE.”

Monkeys In Space finally announce the title of their upcoming 2014 release and give a little bit of insight into how this record found its name. Get ready Monkeys the new album “Kill Your Past” is right around the corner!
