New Does It Offend You, Yeah? – The Monkeys Are Coming

It’s been quiet on the Does It Offend You, Yeah? front for a couple of years. It’s been nearly 3 years since their first album You have no idea what you are getting yourself into (They’re good at catchy names, right?). Apart from a bit of producing for Prodigy, they’ve kept a low profile.

However, they are now back with their second album, Don’t Say We Didn’t Warn You, which comes out on March 15th. Their second track from the album is streaming now, called ‘The Monkeys are Coming’, after ‘We are the Dead‘ hit the airwaves a few months ago.

This band often have two kinds of songs. There’s the heavy, screeching, wall of noise tracks that are a bit hit or miss. They’ve struck gold before with ‘We Are Rockstars’, but have flopped before with ‘Lets Make Out’.

Then there are the ballads, like ‘Epic Last Song’, but they can be unpredictable too.

This new track is a wall of noise one. But it’s a miss, not a hit. It’s quite annoying, the lyrics and voice samples do nothing for the song. It is reminiscent of ‘We Are Rockstars’, but without the needed chorus respites that gives it such a good structure.

Let’s hope the rest of the album hits home.
