"I've got the coolest name in the world. If I had a band, I'd name it Brass Knuckle Monkey!"

- Ian at 9 Years Old -

"Playing in bands for most of my 50 years, coming up with band names became a family affair. We always have the funny ones, the ones that don't sound like the band or the genres. We even get on board when friends are starting bands and throw out ideas. Naming a band is an art, and it has to be done right. Eleven or so years ago, we were having a family conversation about band names, and we were all throwing around names. Ian came in and said, "I've got the coolest name in the world. If I had a band, I'd name it Brass Knuckle Monkey." We were in tears laughing. 9 year-old Ian ROCKS!" ~ Brady Woodall

Eleven years later, as this project was getting off the ground, it had to be done... Introducing BRASS KNUCKLE MONKEY!

Brass Knuckle Monkey is a heavy metal band coming out of Austin, Texas. They seamlessly blend 80s thrash, modern metalcore, brutal hardcore, and even Latin rock. Starting in the bedroom of Ian Woodall (Lead Vox, Rhythm guitar), he enlisted the help of Ammon Salcido (Bass, Backing Vox), Stan Petraitis (Drums), and Liz Chavez (Lead Guitar) to make this band the Songwriting/gigging powerhouse it is now.
