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!

DAMN… WE SUCK!

It is most definitely worth the wait!

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..
