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.
Monkey3 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, Kyuss 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 a 14-years career, Monkey3 released 4 other albums whose last, “The 5th Sun”, goes back to November 2013, and was released 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…and the story goes on !
MONKEY3´s new album, Astra Symmetry, feeds its inspiration from the mapping of the stars and their symbolic associations, interpreting the constellations stranded over the dark sky.
Taking its roots in the pristine abyss, Astra Symmetry is a journey towards sidereal soundscapes making their course over four progressive chapters revolved around the zodiac wheel, unifying astrological signs under their elemental nature. What begins in the deep waters, ascends into thin air and acquires earthly consciousness before burning in the sacred fire. Decidedly cosmic instrumental music that loves melding heavy riffing with proggy keyboard landscapes – so buckle up and enjoy the ride!
Astra Symmetry will be released on September 2nd 2016 via Napalm Records.
