Metal fusion masters TRAIN BIGGER MONKEYS have announced that they are embarking on their HUMAN TESTING TOUR across Canada. The band planned the tour around a festival date at the Grind Your Mind festival in Montreal, QC. Their tour kicks off in their hometown of Calgary at Dicken’s Pub on August 6 by eight more consecutive dates across Canada.
“We’re looking forward to this tour! Being our first time playing outside of the province. We’re most excited for poutine and crepes in Quebec before Grind Your Mind. We’re ready to bring our blend of metal across this great country.” – Adam ‘Greasy’ Benito (vocals)
The band has teamed up with PureGrainAudio.com to stream their single ‘Glass Case of Emotion’ featuring a clip from the film Anchorman introducing this thunderous track. The song can be found here: http://puregrainaudio.

Train Bigger Monkeys is an expression of society force fed life-long corruption.
Metal has a way of taking control, and TBM revels in the direction it takes them.
Formed in the winter of 2007, Train Bigger Monkeys have set out to destroy. With a sound that is both melodic and punishing, TBM has succeeded in creating music that melts faces and blasts minds. With a wide array of influences across numerous metal genres you get a taste of death, thrash, progressive, hardcore and straight up metal all rolled into one. Train Bigger Monkeys always bring an energy, technicality and a true passion to the stage that will challenge anyone not to get involved.
They have had the honour to share the stage with metal legends such as Massacre, Archspire, Incantation, and Benighted, and have performed at multiple Death/Chuck Shuldiner tribute shows as well as Vernstock, Farmageddon Open Air, and Calgary Metal Fest.
With 2 full length albums under their belts (The Human Disgrace – 2012 & Divergence – 2014), and a line up that makes it look easy, the band is undoubtedly on their way to success with a sound that is constantly evolving and refining into something truly unique that can only be Train Bigger Monkeys.
2014 – Divergence – Full-length
2012 – The Human Disgrace – Full-length
“TBM is an excellent band. This band is exciting to watch and have alot of energy behind them. It’s almost like these guys were meant to play together because they all mesh so well and are a very tight band.” – Maggie ‘Metal Maiden’ Bolcsfoldy (Crown of Viserys)
“TBM challenge the listener to engage their brains…a band that is ready to take the Calgary (and Canadian) metal scene by storm.” – Matt Beauchamp (National Music Centre)
“Train Bigger Monkeys writes dynamic, melodic, thrashy riffs. The songs are complex… varied, melodic, death like offerings will keep any fan of melodic dead or thrash entertained… carefully crafted and original.” – Ryan Primrose (Absolute Underground)
