Monkey for president is a band, founded by four like-minded guys for the town of Alken, Belgium. After everyone played in several rock bands, and making you ears pop. They all ended up with the same feeling: I want to do things differently.


Kristof and Brecht very quickly found this common ground, and started looking for a drummer to join the band. Some time passed, and Joeri joined the band. The last one to join in was Joris. Forming this band happened in a natural flow of the course of 6 months.


Soon, in this formation, we started to play some covers just to get started and create 'our sound'.

Days became weeks, and weeks become months, months became ... songs.


We started writing our own songs as this was our goal from day 1. In winter we took some time off, and went to Arcen. In the local holiday parc we excluded ourself for 4 days.


Upon our return, and after some finetuning of the songs ... Here we are. Monkey for President at your service.
