The search is over! We are proud to announce the most recent additions to Monkeys In Space, bassist Scott Szikla – formerly of A Shattered Hope – and drummer Jason Dean – formerly of Heavy Treavy and the Not So Fat Kids! We are back in the lab, workin hard to pump out some new music and have been reinspired by both Scott and Jason’s passion for music and enthusiasm about our band. We’re so stoked for what’s to come and hope to see you this Sunday at the Che Cafe in San Diego, CA! Rockkkkk
Our buddy Raymond Roman has yet again sorted through about 100 gigs of iphone footage of ours and came back with a pretty cool behind the scenes glimpse of our life on the road. Unfortunately it is just the band members with Cell Phone cameras so much of the performances were not captured but you do get a chance to see the pre and post show Monkeys In Space. Stay tuned- this is a 4 part series!
We hope you enjoy watching as much as we enjoyed making it!
We will be closing out the Second Leg of our Flying Under the Influence tour at our favorite Hollywood spot- the Whisky A-Go Go this Friday the 27th! We hope to see all you kids there with your fists in the air!
Following the Whisky show we will be in Tempe, AZ for the raddest Cinco De Mayo celebration in the west at Macayo’s Cantina and then we will be returning to Hollywood to start pre-production on our new record!
Big thangs Big thangs, See you all very soon!
About a week ago we hit the streets of San Diego to film a music video for our track “This is How We Live.” In one day of shooting and just a few days in post-production, our good friend Jared Goldstein put together a really badass video! We hope you enjoy what you see and get a better idea of just how. it. is. we. live 😉

Johnny and I were wandering around downtown San Diego before our last show at the House of Blues. We turn the corner and see two masked figures approaching. Sketchy, right? After we got a bit closer we realized who we were dealing with: San Diego’s own Real-Life Superheroes! (How pumped are we?!)
For those of you that don’t know who the Real-Life Superheroes are, I encourage you to do a little research online. If you’re thinking this is jussstt thsilly, think again. These guys are real deal. In fact, so real deal that HBO produced a documentary on real-life superheroes across the nation. Our friend in the red mask goes by Urban Avenger. I can’t remember the name of the one in the purple, but they were both rad enough to take a picture with us.
There’s no doubt these guys get made fun of more often than not – and it’s pretty easy to understand why. But there will be no jokes made from camp Mi$. These guys take their shit seriously and make no mistake about it, they will fuck you up, criminal.
A few weeks back we got invited down to the studio to debut our new song “Roses” LIVE on the air with FM 94.9′s Tim Pyles. Tim has been a huge supporter of the band for some time now, and decided to bring the kids in for a little promo. Can’t thank him enough for the opportunity.. San Diego got a little of what’s to come off of the upcoming “People Pleasing” record, along with one of our favorites, “Supermodel Suitcase.” Check out the interview below. Hopefully this won’t be the last time we make it on the air… What do you think?
Hey kiddos, Here is a link to some footage I found on an old flip cam- Its got a pre pre-production sessions and some Flying Under the Influence tracking on it.. I figured it was now or never to show it as we are finishing up the tracking on our second real release. I think we finally settled on a name for our upcoming album. “People-Pleasing” takes the cake and is also the title track on the album. Interestingly enough, or not so much, the album name stems from another one of those “fed up with the world” conversations J and I have been having all too frequently lately. “No more People Pleasing” View Pre-Production on People Pleasing and some older tracks here.. Really jonesin for some new MI$.. take a listen to this one for another sneak-peak.. video content is kinda whack, sorry guys- life in the fastlane is cutting into my editing (and blogging) time.. Oh Yea and this one shot at 4:10am on the eve of our move into the new pad! Hope to see all of our favorite local Monkeys to 710 Beach Club in Pacific Beach on August 19th! We will be debuting a few new jams and have some giveaways planned- its gonna be a kick in the face of a time.
much love- Ruk
