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!

Well that holiday hiatus sucked fuckin balls. We’re back to doin what we do best- breakin guitars, shouting obscenities and avoiding the real world… so naturally we thought it would be the perfect time to return to the stage, and what better place to do so.. Catch us live at 4th & B in the heart of downtown San Diego- Saturday January 29th of this brand new year. Lace up them dancin shoes and sharpen those elbows cause we’re gonna make ya hurt for it!
Just got this one back this mornin- Huge thanks to OXi Ros for all of your (unpaid) time and effort on cleaning up our crappy recordings!
We’re really stoked on how this one came out, hope you all enjoy it. Monkeys in Space, “Blame Me”

And now for an update… We have taken a break from our usual sloppy drunk mess of shows to invest some serious time in recording and song writing. Tonight we will be posting our latest DIY track from MonkeyMayhem Studios/Apartment entitled Blame Me- Guaranteed to give you a rock n’ rollin hard-on.
We will also, finally, be wrapping up the Self-Addressed Video shoot with Mr. Mike Vara that we have been sitting on for quite sometime now. I think you kids are gonna be really stoked on what direction the video ended up taking.
Word around town is our good friend Ray Roman & Tv World have been digging up all sorts of wild home movies that should eventually find there way in a Monkey Vision style Music Video for Whiskey Kings, can’t wait to see what kind of embarrassing shit makes the final cut!
And if we haven’t enlisted army of friends big enough I have roped one of our more graphically inclined friends, Peter Nudo, into doing some Artwork for us so we should have some legitimate merch come the new year… Fingers Crossed.
Much love, can’t wait to rock all your faces off with these new jams soon, BaddestMonkey.
Whiskey Kings Promo comin at ya hot! Thanks Mikey!
