GO APE SHIT

Biography

APE is the band filling a void that has been ignored for far too long; the need for a real rock band to lead this generation. Founded by singer/guitar player Everett Mason and bassist Galen Weir, APE's existence is a journey built on the foundation laid out by previous and current great bands in the rock and metal world, a world that seems so far removed from today's unimpressive mainstream scene. As Everett states "When I listen to Guns n' Roses or Pantera it inspires me to make music that can have that kind of an impact on a kid listening to an APE record. That wasn't some phase I was going through one summer when I was 13. the connection I have with those bands are forever." Is APE a rock or metal band? Although the members would simply reply "we are just a good fucking band," APE's combination of hard rock, classic rock, and thrash metal is what makes the trio such a unique and epic act. In a generation when most new bands seem familiar and irrelevant, APE's original uncompromising material is a necessary alternative to the predictable commercial material that is so overdone. APE, which features Everett Mason on vocals/guitar, Galen Weir on bass, and Carlos Aguilera on drums will have just released their first full-length album "Survival Of The Fittest" in March of 2009.
