Monkey3 European Tour Starts Nov. 6

Four albums deep into their career, Switzerland’s Monkey3 are veterans of Freak Valley, Desertfest Belgium and Berlin, Roadburn (x2), Lake on Fire, Up in Smoke, Hellfest, Keep it Low, among others, but they nonetheless seem to remain somewhat underrated when it comes to the “holy shit!” response factor. Part of that no doubt is being a largely vocal-less outfit, but even so, particularly sitting in the States, it’s easy to feel like if more people knew about this band, more people would flip their gourd at everything they do.

Same could be said of a lot of groups, I suppose. However, it comes to mind as Monkey3 make ready to head out on their 2015 fall European tour. It’s not quite as extensive as they one they did last year at this time, but the difference is they’re road-testing new material for their next album, which will be their second for Napalm Records behind 2013’s The 5th Sun, their fourth overall and the follow-up to 2011’s Beyond the Black Sky (review here), which was released by Stickman.

No word on a release date, or even really a recording date for the new full-length, but sometime in the New Year doesn’t feel like a ridiculous expectation. We’ll find out when we get there. In the meantime, tour dates follow:
