Sprung Monkey's new album "Dead Is Dead" is scheduled for a November 26th, 2013 release date on Pacific Records. Sprung Monkey will hit the road with Suicidal Tendencies for a string of dates beginning November 27th in San Luis Obispo, CA.
"Being raised in San Diego, a military town, one gains a certain honor and respect for those who risk their lives on behalf of us all," said frontman Steve Summers. "The song 'Dead Is Dead' was inspired and written with those people in mind. When push comes to shove … they are the ones who get the job done."
From the early days of selling CD's out of their trunk to their breakout success on MTV, Sprung Monkey has kept true to their heavy, hypnotic sound. Through the years, Sprung Monkey have become a staple in the extreme and action sports world, appearing on ESPN's X-Games and contributing tunes to countless surf, skate, and snowboarding films, which opened up opportunities that have included major tours and festivals in United States, Europe, and Australia. The band's relentless work ethic and tour schedule earned them spots on the Van's Warped Tour, a slot at the world famous KROQ's Weenie Roast, film and television placements, and an appearance on the Conan O'Brian Show. Over the past few years the guys have been exploring, growing and focusing their musical talents to write some of their best music to date which continues to fuel and embrace the classic Spring Monkey sound and the California lifestyle that their music embodies.
