Lithuanian alternative music band Monkey Tank releases controversial song and video

From 90’s rock vibrations to modern rock and unexpected musical combinations, the “Monkey Tank” band manages to join everything into a solid musical experience. A constant search for new sound variations is leading this rock band to progress and after an intensive creative work in their studio, “Monkey Tank” finally invites their listeners to enjoy their latest song “Death By Jesus”.

Their latest piece is about the dark side of the human personality. When something is blindly followed, it can suddenly provoke hatred, destruction, and perhaps even distort the perception of reality. The song tells the absurd story of a man drowned in fanaticism.

“In our newest video we metaphorically talk about the absurdity, which is around us, although when we created this song, we didn’t expect that such an idea of it could be so relevant in nowadays reality” - the band members speak about the idea of the work.

The name of the “Monkey Tank” band is already familiar to the alternative music scene - in recent years they have been playing at the most popular Lithuanian events, festivals and organized tours around Lithuania. They have already released a full studio album “Sugar, Spice & Everything Nice” (2014), followed by a mini-album, “Continue …” (2016).

Since then, “Monkey Tank” has been working tirelessly on new songs, challenging themselves in the search for distinctive sound. All this work and dedication is in order to present the second full-length album “Field Notes”, marking the band's 10th year anniversary.

“We can strongly say that this album is the best we have created so far, due to a lot of work, new variations of different instruments and vocal parts that have been added to it. Our mood is great, because we feel like we are still able to surprise even ourselves” - say “Monkey Tank” band members.

The latest single, “Death By Jesus,” is now available on all digital music platforms, while  “Monkey Tank's” future plans include a new album and LP “Field Notes” release followed by live music concerts.
