MONKEY3 is on the edge of space-rock, stoner and progressive. Cosmic wall of sound, psychedelic vibes, instrumental music that invites you to travel through your mind. Trippy grooves for heavy riffs with spacey keyboards landscapes, all enhanced by hypnotic video projections. Fasten your seat belts, ready to take-off !
They started in 2001 in Lausanne (Switzerland) as a jam-band community, influenced by a psychedelic and stoner-rock vibe that reminds Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin or 35007. With their debut album "Monkey3", released in 2004 by belgian label Buzzville Records, the band got great reactions and reviews all over Europe, putting them on the map of the stoner-rock scene.
Over their 13-years career, MONKEY3 released 5 other albums whose last, "Astra Symmetry", came out in September 2016 via Napalm Records! All along the years, the Swiss quartet also toured everywhere in Europe, supporting the greatest acts, and playing the best festivals : Roadburn, Hellfest, Desertfest Berlin & London...
Now in the Spring of 2019, the quartet is about to release their 6th album "Sphere"! Many dates are planned to promote it.
