In case you missed it, here is our interview and performance on Global News Morning Winnipeg:
When you are watching CBC television, you may hear a familiar sound as you see monkeys typing away on typewriters . . . YES! It IS US! Our song Time To Roll has been used on a CBC tv spot to promote the CBC Music website (which is a GREAT resource for Canadian music!) It looks exactly like this . . .

TIME TO ROLL!!
We are proud to announce that MonkeyJunk’s 5th recording Time To Roll arrives Friday Nov 4th!
It was recorded and mixed in just 3 weeks at Almonte, ON’s Signal Path Studio with long time collaborator and co-producer Ken Friesen. It has combined aspects of all 4 previous recordings and the band enlisted lyrical collaborators including Tom Wilson (Blackie & The Rodeo Kings, Lee Harvey Osmond, Junkhouse), Paul Reddick, Matthew Chaffey (The Split) and engineer & co-producer Ken Friesen (The Tragically Hip, Blue Rodeo) to complete the songs. The result is a raw snapshot of where the band has been and arrived in 8 and a half years of touring and recording. Kelly Prescott lends backing vocals two tracks otherwise, it’s all Tony. Steve and Matt. Sample tunes will be posted soon and the band is already playing several of the tracks live – check it out in a town near you!
