A new beginning…

Monkeys In Space has had our share of ups and downs over our tenure playing music together. Unfortunately, time and circumstance (and distance) has resulted in a few serious changes to the band.

My nonsensical path in life has lead me to Colorado Springs, CO and out of sheer stubbornness, I refuse to let all that we have built fade away. I have continued to work toward the release of our 2nd full-length album, Kill Your Past, and will see it come to fruition towards the end of this year. 10 years of MIS and Kill Your Past will be the one to put us on the map, I have no doubt.

All that being said, we have had to make some changes to the MIS roster to stay afloat. Filling out our rhythm section we would like to announce that Shawn Canela and Wiley Lowe will be replacing Ryan Higginson and Josh Smith. Much love to Ryan and Josh for all they have given me in this lifetime and I know this won’t be the last time we share a stage together.. but for now, onward and upward as we keep this train rolling.

We are booking shows in Colorado and surrounding states for this Winter and I assure you, with Shawn keeping the kit warm and Wiley funking up our bass- we will continue to bring a powerful and dynamic set to the stage. We look forward to seeing all of your faces in the pit and hope you will stay tuned.. the best is yet to come.

Another new single from MIS: SOLDIER

One of the first songs ever written in our sweaty 8×8 practice studio we called the Box.  For those of you that know you are coming up on a win.. We give you SOLDIER. Check out 5 other new singles from Monkeys In Space on the youtube channel at youtube.com/baddestmonkeyrawk or anywhere else music is sold or streamed.

Listen to SOLDIER now here: https://youtu.be/cJ5GRawOLzA

Due to the fact that we are self-producing this record, it is a taking much longer than we had hoped to finish. For that reason, or perhaps a last ditch effort to remain relevant, we will continue to release new singles 1 x 1 until the album is finished, which, with just a few songs left to go, will be released by the end of 2018.

Keep listening and will keep rocking!

From Space to your Face- we will see all of you soon!

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

A tune about keepin your head up and stayin strong.. keep on keepin on.. if you will.

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!

“Kill Your Past” Delays…

DAMN… WE SUCK!

We would like to hugely apologize for the “Kill Your Past” delays! Mixing of the gnarly 18 song line up took weeks longer then expected and set our whole production schedule back- We are incredibly embarrassed to have to postpone its release for the 3rd time but on the flip side- we are totally stoked on the amount of hard work and dedication that has gone into every inch of the new album. It is most definitely worth the wait!

For those of you that did pre-order the new album package- Please accept our most sincere apologies for the delay and know we will be adding some killer special Mi$ merch to the pre-order package to make up for the delay! Expect your packages by the last week of June! We will also be sending out links to everyone who has pre-ordered to exclusive new tracks as they become available so keep an eye out for those sneak peaks!

Pre-Order Package Deadlines have been EXTENDED- Purchase today and receive a bundle of EPIC 1-of-a-kind MI$ gear with the new record, Kill Your Past!

Visit www.KillYourPast.com to pre-order the new album and check out all of our one of a kind Merchandise! Every purchase helps us get that much further on the upcoming Kill Your Past tour- all orders are greatly appreciated.. know you are keeping the Monkeys alive.
