Iron Monkey

Cult UK doom/sludge outfit Iron Monkey has announced three headline, UK tour dates in April 2018. Tickets on sale Wednesday, November 29th at 10am GMT.

After disbanding in 1999 after the death of their original singer J.P. Morrow, Iron Monkey has reformed for phase two of their mission. Recorded in their hometown of Nottingham in Spring 2017 with producer Johnny A. Carter, 9-13 is 9 songs and 48 minutes of total nihilism. Now older, more cynical and more isolationist, Iron Monkey are back to usurp the scene, then crush its skull. Without question, their most focused, aggressive and direct material to date, 9-13 is an all-out assault of violent hatred and nightmarish negativity. Recommended listening for fans of pain, suffering, and misanthropy.

  • Apr 13 – Manchester, UK Rescue Rooms
  • Apr 14 – London, UK The Underworld
  • Apr 21 – Manchester, UK Ruby Lounge
