October was quite a month for Monkeys In Space. We added another bass player to the group, moved – again – and began the early stages of planning our Spring 2012 tour. Here’s our most recent webisode, which includes the introduction of our new bass-man Josh, plus some highlights from his first show with the band. Much more to come.. catch up with us on Twitter, Facebook and ReverbNation for constant updates on Monkeys In Space. Enjoy!
After all the bullshiittt of the last couple of months, Monkeys In Space is back on track. We introduced you all to Josh Smith, our new badass bassist, now it’s time to see what the kid can do! We’re headed back to our local spot, the Sandbar in Mission Beach, Tuesday November 8th for yet another rowdy night. Can’t wait to see you all there!!
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.
Our friends over at 91x gave us a huge shout out last night, rocking “Whiskey Kings” and “Roses” back to back on their Loudspeaker program! We’ve already received a great response from all of you that heard it! Thanks for the support. Times are tough for your favorite Monkeys, but we’re pushing through. A little love from the radio surely helps. Thanks again to everyone at 91x/Loudspeaker. We’re looking forward to getting more involved with you guys… Rock on.
Keep requesting Monkeys In Space on your favorite rock radio stations! #LETSGO
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?
We’ve got a big week ahead of us, Monkeys! First, J celebrates 24 years of kicking life’s ass doin what he was born to do – rockin out at one of our favorite venues, 4th&B! Former drummer of Guns n’ Roses Steven Adler will be there with his new project “Adler’s Appetite,” along with another SD rock crew, Oliver Trolley! Expect lots of women, booze and rock n’ roll!
The following night we head back to the Sandbar for another rowdy night by the beach. The Sandbar is shaping up to be our local rock-spot and it’s been a party unlike any other in town!
After we rock SD, we’re heading up North to give a little love to our crew in San Fran. Check us out Saturday night at the Rock-It-Room!!
Other than that, we have some new music and movies on the way! Stay tuned!!
