Instrumental rockers MONKEY3 have buckled up for their next interstellar journey. “Sphere” will be out on April 12 through Napalm Records and can now be pre-ordered.
Nestled somewhere in between space rock, psych, stoner and progressive, the Swiss four piece is infamous for its onstage intensity that has crowned prestigious festivals such as Roadburn, Hellfest and Desertfest. The act has managed to distill and concentrate its cosmic soundwall on seventh longplayer “Sphere” down to Pink Floyd-esque surfaces that collide with gritty riffing and noisy outbursts. Tunes such as ‘Axis‘ soar with crystal-clear melodies and dreamy jamming that really turn “Sphere” into an incomparable astral trip.

The band will be on tour with Samsara Blues Experiment during the spring of 2019.
