Portland, Oregon’s APE MACHINE is sowing their seeds by continuing an onslaught of regional touring of the urban wastelands of the U.S. West Coast!
The quartet that admittedly is “out to melt faces and pound the apathy out of otherwise jaded listeners” is eager to bring the live Machine back to stages, and show the masses what hard and heavy music is supposed to do to the senses. APE MACHINE is revisiting some frequent haunts of past West Coast tours all in the support of the band’s critically-acclaimed Ripple Music debut, Mangled By The Machine, and this time playing in the coveted opening slot in San Diego for UK’s monsters of retro rock, Orange Goblin!
“We’ve been home for a month now, and though it’s been great to work on writing new songs, we’re all hungry to back out and rock some more!” Stated guitarist Ian Watts on the bands mind set for getting back on the road, “One of the dates on this run is with Orange Goblin, who we shared the stage with at Freak Valley Festival in Germany. Those guys kick ass so we’re looking forward to rocking with them again!”
APE MACHINE, Ripple Music and DeadRhetoric.com have conspired to give one lucky winner a copy of Mangled By The Machine on CD and vinyl LP. The contest remains open through Friday, October 4. Enter to win at www.DeadRhetoric.com.
Mangled By The Machine was released in early May of 2013 by Ripple Music, and is distributed throughout the North America through Nail/Allegro Distribution, the UK through Code 7, and Continental Europe through Clearspot International.
