Nefarious Industries lifts the veil on a new split 7” from two outer-boundary musical acts, Space Monkey and Fuck Your Birthday. Blow Out The Candles And Make A Split will see a 7” vinyl release with one track from each band, while the digital version will feature an additional track from each band.

Pengdee states, “Youth, to many people, hardly includes more than the time spent nose-diving in textbooks. However, we see youth as the energy source necessary for breaking out of the numbness of adulthood. So, we implore youths everywhere to shirk those chains of conformity, avoid falling into the mentality of the middle-aged man, and run as wild as a space monkey. Pinboard was/is my original band from high school, but then when Junsun and I went to college we started a band to play a simpler slice of punk rock, akin to our favorite bands: The Ramones and The Clash. We decided to title this band Space Monkey after seeing Fight Club, when Tyler calls his gang of henchmen space monkeys. We thought the way they worked off their stress could be compared to the punk rockers moshing in the pit.”

Blow Out The Candles And Make A Split will see release via Nefarious Industries on July 12th; find preorders at the label webshop HERE and Bandcamp HERE.

Space Monkey’s tracks “We Are Space Monkey” and “Billy Billy” were recorded at ACE Station in Guangzhou, China. For Fuck Your Birthday’s “The Plan” and “Go Outside,” the drums were recorded in Keidan’s Living Room in Morgantown, West Virginia, the guitars and bass were recorded in a shed in New Martinsville, West Virginia, and the vocals were recorded in Wenzhou, China. All tracks on Blow Out The Candles And Make A Split were mixed by Christopher Henry and mastered by Bill Henderson at Azimuth Mastering.
