DevilMonkey is an alternative electro-space-rock outfit from the southern parts of Melbourne. With influences as diverse as The Orb and Slayer, this hard-hitting band creates space anthems for the action movie you didn’t know you were watching! DevilMonkey is busy in the studio wrapping up a new album – watch this space for release details and sneak previews.

…an interesting sound, alternately atmospheric, grooving and hard hitting, with rough and ready vocals, a combination of electronic and acoustic drums and a very ‘left of centre’ stage presence. You have to hand it to a band who are going way out on a limb and trying something very different, both with their music and their live show.

James Cain, lead singer of the band, is one passionate musician, charismatic and ready to squeeze your face off (in a loving, huggy way). His energy is contagious, both on stage and off and the rest of the band feed off that and the whole thing together is just an awesome mashing of sweat and sound and visual dichotomy. This shit is old school, good loud tones, scream your lungs out, and reminisce about how good music can be; totally assault your ears, stuff. You need it. You need to hear music played like this kids! Get out and see them live…
