WANT BADGES? HAVE BADGES!!!
Small runs, UK only - get in touch HERE
We're very excited to announce that around July/August we're planning on going to Japan for 10 days to play some gigs...but to get there we need to raise some money.
So to help raise some money towards our flights we've put together a live album from a couple of gigs we played in Europe a few years back.
It's available for download on our bandcamp.
It'd be a massive help to us (and be very much appreciated!) if any of you fancied buying a few songs (or even the whole album).
You can find it HERE.
Happy New Year!!
We would like to say a gert big thanks to everyone who has made this year another fantastic one for us...it would be almost impossible to name you all (or even remember ha ha) but you know who you are and, somewhere in our muddy brains, so do we.
We've been very lucky to play 60 gigs across 5 countries including 10 new towns/cities...among the many highlights we supported the legendary NOMEANSNO and the MISFITS, played with a 30-piece orchestra, toured with our great mates Dead Subverts and Rash Decision and had lots of fun with friends both old and new.
To everyone that's put us on, put us up, put up with us, played with us, turned up to see us, bought us drinks, bought our merch, been nice to us or just told us to fuck off...we love you all and we'll see you somewhere on the road in 2014.......
Cheers folks!!! xx
PS: For any of you who like stats here's what our slow-but-steady march towards 1,000 gigs looks like as of Dec 31, 2013....
782 gigs in 199 towns/cities in 13 countries in 13 years...so far
New recordings, gigs and Bandcamp!!
We are slowly but surely putting down a lot of new songs for a few future releases.
These include a split release with PiPi (Japanese Punk band featuring our great mate Ayumi) and an EP of our own.
We will also, at some point soon, be getting the final mixes of the songs we recorded with Matt at Pumpkin Records for a vinyl release.
More info as soon as we have it...
Between now and Christmas we'll be out and about, so if you're anywhere near Cardiff, Bolton, Bristol, Addlestone, Salisbury, Mansfield, Swindon, Bradford, Rotherham or Sheffield, please pop along and see us.
We now have a bandcamp account.
Go to: 2sickmonkeys.bandcamp.com and you will find the first 3 EP's and Curse of the Monkeys album for 'Pay-What-You-Want' download.
More music will be available there soon...
