"Monkey3", the first album of the band, was released in march 2003. Following this production, Monkey3 inked a deal with the Belgian label Buzzville Records. The record has been re-released in a bigger way in june 2004.
To promote their music, during the years 2004 and 2005, Monkey3 toured in Belgium, Netherlands, U.K, France, Switzerland and Germany playing with acts such as Alabama Thunderpussy, Mono, Honcho, Colour Haze, Los Natas, Dozer, Hypnos 69, Houston swing engine, Sparzanza.
Monkey3 started to built a good "live" reputation thanks to their particular sonic universe embellished by visual projections on the bass drum and the quality of their "wall of sound".
The second Monkey3's album is under construction. The band will start the recording process during april 2006 and the record will be out during the month of September. In between this two dates Monkey3 will appear on a split E.P with the stoner-rock act Ufomammut.
With the new tunes and with the acquired experience, Monkey3 will set up a more bewitched and unique show in order to follow what has been described as the "ultimate psycostoner experience ".
