RIPPLE MUSIC is proud to announce the signing of acclaimed, hard-hitting American heavy rockers, APE MACHINE to their ever-expanding roster!
The band’s third album, “Mangled by the Machine”, is set for worldwide release on RIPPLE MUSIC in the coming months as the band takes off to plow over the masses on a full-scale US and European Tour, including appearances in all the major heavy rock festivals.
APE MACHINE commented yesterday upon the new alliance; “We are very excited to be a part of the Ripple family and to work with one of the most genuine heavy rock labels in the world! It’s clear that these guys don’t compromise in terms of putting out creative music and are true believers of heavy rock. The variety of bands and the sheer quality of music they’ve released speaks for itself. We’re very honored that our music earned its place among their ranks!”
…Keeping in line with their proud “retro” heritage, the new album, “Mangled by the Machine”, was recorded on analog tape and is being pressed from analog lacquers and plates, which will ensure the highest quality analog sound and fidelity.
With a catalog of underground releases, Ape Machine has gained accolades, awards and a hard earned cult-like status. They have established themselves as the go-to band for those searching out more than just a few killer riffs; a foundation of heavy that will flourish under the Ripple banner.
