Today, Lausanne-based instrumental psych rock act MONKEY3 is celebrating the release of their much-awaited, critically acclaimed new studio album, Welcome To The Machine, out now on  Napalm Records!

Once again, MONKEY3 envelop listeners in their unique, cosmic auditory haze with their newest release. Welcome To The Machine‘s musical themes are inspired by movies such as 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Matrix, Sunshine, Solaris and 1984, while unveiling an intense mankind vs. machines story that instantly launches the listener into deep space. Right from its first tones, the album immediately emerges as a perfect soundtrack to a journey into the unknown. Tracks such as “Rackman” or the epic “Collision” perfectly showcase how MONKEY3 are one of only a few instrumental bands that know how to tell an enthralling story.

Guitarist Boris describes the album as a “Melancholy darkness towards a lost path. A long and haunting journey into the unknown.“

To celebrate today’s record release, a cosmic video clip for the final album single, “Kali Yuga“, is now premiering HERE:

In support of Welcome To The Machine, MONKEY3 have announced an extensive European tour schedule, including festival appearances at Desertfest Berlin & London, Motocultor, Alcatraz, Heavy Psych Sounds Fests and many more. Find all upcoming live dates listed below!

Following Live at Freak Valley in 2017 and their latest, much-acclaimed album, Sphere (2019),  Welcome To The Machine not only marks the band’s seventh and most epic, dark and captivating record to date, but it also clearly demonstrates why MONKEY3 are one of the most exciting instrumental rock bands in the modern stoner and psychedelic rock scene.

Welcome To The Machine explores as much as it poses questions. It is dark and menacing; evoking melancholic destruction while somehow bursting with hope at the same time. While MONKEY3 move perfectly between haunting passages and progressive breaks, as well as mesmerizing grooves and colossal riffs, the band excels with an extensive, cosmic trip that culminates in a majestic psychedelic magnum opus! The album was recorded and mixed by Raphaël Bovey at Blend Studio and MyRoom Studio, and was mastered by Lad Agabekov at Caduceus Studios in Switzerland. The stunning cover artwork was created by Sebastian Jerke.
