News

1st things 1st. Thanks to those who came out to New Brookland Tavern last night, we know it was kinda a weird night, lots going on in Columbia, Christmas around the corner  — But still you decided to spend your evening with the crazy cats of Skymonk. We love you, weird gurgling inside and out (sorry my stomach is growling while I write this). I have to mention the spectacular Charles Grace of Sleeping Policeman from Myrtle Beach, SC drove in last night to spend the evening playing tunes and dropping the dirtiest, bluesy slow version of Thriller I’ve ever heard. Laton Powers Band, (Lanton, Lantern? Sp?, I’m kidding) we always love to share the stage. You are an artist and a stand up dude.

Skymonk has already got a jump on 2014 with our new sweet package of shows coming up. Check it

Jan 3rd – Utopia – We’re doing a 3 hr gig – starting with some quieter tunes, acoustic stuff. Then around 10pm we’re cranking up the amps and making people wish they had decided to bring an extra pair of pants.

Jan 28th – New Brookland Tavern  — Charles Grace will be back in town to play with Skymonk, eBlue, and Marbin. Don’t miss this show, again I suggest extra pants just in case.

 

RECORDING UPDATE:

So I know we’ve been talking about release, release, release. Well we’re actually making concrete progress. We’re another session away from finishing the new version of Stop Looking at Me. We plan to head back in for a full blown two whole days at Soundlab to finish two more songs to release a complete 3 song EP, analog only. We’ve been so blessed to work with Bob from Soundlab who has just been a great guy to work with. I so look forward to us finally releasing this piece of work with a supreme sense of pride.

Any who…

What we be without a nice gallery of our beautiful mugs.

We appreciate everyone who comes out. Every show. Thank you tons.

Until next time,

Monk Nation,
We’ve been slack on updating you on what’s going on here. Lemme fill you in.
1. We are doing more recording
2. It’s better than before
3. It’s analog
4. And there’s probably more where that came from
5. We had a show out of town (cola), broke that cherry finally
6. We have a show on Dec 19th at New Brookland Tavern, with Sleeping Policeman and Laton Powers — it’s going to be great

So… a few things. Skymonk has big plans for the new year. This is our year to take our music career by storm. Putting out this album and being proud to stand behind it is something that rings deep in all three of us. I think it’s so important for us to truly believe in what we’re doing so we’re taking those steps to do just that.

Couple shots from our last show at Mac’s Lounge in Hartsville on 10/23 and the studio in Lexington, SC

Hey until next time,
kn

Incredible show!!!!!
Skymonk had the opportunity to open for a couple really great bands on 9/3/13, Ponitak and The Golden Void. Great people, great music, everyone had a blast. We wish they were around more often so we could gig out with them even more because we did have such a great time. Hopefully soon we get the chance to grace the stage again together. Best of luck on the continuing tour, please come back when you can, we’ll be there.

In other news, the EP still has some details that need finishing, but we make progress everyday. I have a short trip so I’ll be back in a few weeks but we are looking forward to working with Bob from Soundlab in Lexington, SC to wrap this thing up and move onto the next project. We appreciate the patience and understanding, good things are on the way and the wait is always worth it.

Until next time I’ll leave you with a video from Tuesday night.
