Mental Monky Ballet

Applehead Records  (almost 4 years ago)


...was the year Mental Monky Ballet first saw the light of day and members Maxa, Linnea, and Nino joined during the year. Previous to MMB, founder songwriter ViVi and members Håkan, Anna and previous member Björn Bertilsson had played a bunch of shows for a couple of years, many times with producer Fretman who altered between guitar and bass.

MMB played their first performance on the great outdoor arena at Kungsträdgården Stockholm on june 8 followed by a couple of club shows but the main focus was on producing the songs.

In August 2013 we were happy to sign a record deal with New York/Woodstock indie label Applehead Films & Records in association with Rockbox Records.

It was a year of intense studioproduction, and the EP "BREAKING THE LAW" was finalized for release in early 2014 and the MMB website was up and running in November. www.mentalmonkyballet.com

...MMB releases the single and official video "INTO THE OPEN" on February 14 followed by their 7 song EP "BREAKING THE LAW" on February 24. A swedish tour in March will also be announced shortly.

According to plan, MMB will tour the New York area in the summer of 2014. Are we excited, or what!

There is also a full length album production in the pipeline but that story we have to save for later.

We hope you will follow us on our trip out into the beautiful wilderness of music.
