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!

This is How We Live- Monkeys in Space feat. Brandon “Blue” Lyles from Jared Goldstein on Vimeo.
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 😉

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!

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!
