Cult UK doom/sludge outfit IRON MONKEY has announced three headline, UK tour dates in April 2018. Tickets on sale Wednesday, November 29th at 10am GMT. A full list of confirmed concerts is available below.
Additionally, watch IRON MONKEY’s previously released music videos from the 9-13 full-length via YouTube HERE.
After disbanding in 1999 after the death of their original singer J.P. Morrow, IRON MONKEY has reformed for phase two of their mission. Recorded in their hometown of Nottingham in Spring 2017 A.D. with producer Johnny A. Carter, 9-13 is 9 songs and 48 minutes of total nihilism. Now older, more cynical and more isolationist, IRON MONKEY are back to usurp the scene, then crush it’s skull. Without question, their most focused, aggressive and direct material to date, 9-13 is an all-out assault of violent hatred and nightmarish negativity. Recommended listening for fans of pain, suffering, and misanthropy.
IRON MONKEY Tour Dates:
Apr 13 Manchester, UK Rescue Rooms
Apr 14 London, UK The Underworld
Apr 21 Manchester, UK Ruby Lounge
IRON MONKEY Bio:
IRON MONKEY was beaten to life in the year of your Lord, One Thousand Nine Hundred and Ninety Four, at the location of Nottingham, England.
The original members were named: J.P.. Morrow, J. Rushby, S. Watson, D. Dalziel, J. Greaves.
Influences were primarily Eyehategod, Buzzov’en, Floor, Grief and various hard-corepunks and heavy-metals.
IRON MONKEY shit out 6 disgusting tracks of raw sludge-core that were released on the Union Mill label then later on Earache Records.
During this period S. Watson was thrown out for being transgressive and replaced by God’s lonely man Dean Berry.
Nineteen Ninety Eight saw the release of the album Our Problem, also on Earache Records, a masterpiece of negative rock that instigated peace on earth and goodwill to all men.
This was succeeded by a split release on Man’s Ruin Records with Church of Misery from Japan.
Rushby soon abdicated and the band found a replacement in the manner of S. O’hara of Acrimony.
IRON MONKEY was destroyed sometime in nineteen ninety nine.
Vocal terror J. P. Morrow died of a heart attack in June of Two Thousand and Two. Rest in noise.
The band reformed for no reason in the winter of Two Thousand and Sixteen with original members J. Rushby and S. Watson, with the addition of current Chaos UK drummer Brigga, forming the shape of an inverted black triangle of vitriol and phase two of operations.
IRON MONKEY do not care about your scene, bands or opinions… ELECTROCUTION, DOOM, OMEGA OMEGA OMEGA.
