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!

“BLACKOUT” IS HERE!!

monkeys_in_space_black_out_final

Monkeys! It’s been a long time a’comin, but we finally released a new song off of our new album “Kill Your Past.” We are proud to introduce “Blackout,” a high-energy power-pop rock song that screams “f**k you” to corporate media – the 24 hour non-news cycle that aims to distract our minds and redirect our hearts to things that plain don’t. matter. Oh, Everybody’s Talkin’ alright, and it’s about time we stop talking and start SHOUTING.

“They say we’re tearing apart at the seams. That’s not what I see, I still believe in WE.”

We are all Monkeys.

F**k it’s good to be back. See you all soon.

ROCK ON ~ MI$ 

Mi$ adds a Monkey to the Mix

The rock Gods have delivered, Monkeys. We’d like to introduce you to our new bass player – Josh Smith. This sexy sumbitch’ walked into the box yesterday and threw down SO hard that we immediately asked (begged) him to come on board full-time. A little info about Josh: He’s from Poway -huge plus for us, since we all know how hard Poway rocks. He’s Canadian, a super talented musician, has cool hair, wears cool shit, likes batman and stands about 6 ft. 2 inches tall – so don’t fuck with him.

Lastly, he’s a really cool kid, dedicated to playing music and is a perfect fit for this band. We’re so stoked to have Josh on board and can’t wait for him to blow your minds.. stay tuned for updates on the new record, shows and our next tour.

ROCK! Monkeys In Space.

Some lost footage..

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.

Monkeys In Space Live at 710 Beach Club, Pacific Beach
