“Did you think that a monkey could change the whole world with only a banana in its hands?”
With their unique musical style, they describe the world’s current comic/tragic situation inspired by the controversial experiment “The monkeys and the ladder” as described in the book Competing for the future by Gary Hamel.
81db debuted in 2009 with the critically acclaimed album ‘Evaluation’, which led to extensive touring throughout Europe and a single, ‘Voices’, whose video was aired on MTV Greece and MAD TV. The band also opened for British Hard Rock legends Deep Purple in Torino, Italy. It came as a big surprise when American Grammy nominated producer Sylvia Massy (Tool, System Of A Down) showed interest in the band. 81db flew to California to record their second album with her between October and November 2010. ‘Impressions’ was released the following year, displaying the full maturity of a band which was at that point on top of their game. 81db in 2013 signed a new deal with Skarlet/Bakerteam Records for the release of their third album ‘A Blind Man’s Dream’. an album that mixes heavy riffs, progressive beats and influences raging from Classic Rock to Folk music, whilst the lyrical concept was inspired by the movie ‘One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest’. The heaviest album the band ever recorded. In 2016 The band celebrates it’s 10 year anniversary with a new song, The Monkey, that was released in a limited edition CD and as an animated music video to be followed by a tour in new places, like eastern Europe and more.
