Ape Machine has teamed up with Ikey Owens of the Mars Volta and Free Moral Agents to produce a new record for 2011. Owens has done a string of productions in recent years in addition to his role as keyboardist for the Mars Volta and Free Moral Agents. Owens brought out the soul in the layered the gospel harmony-filled spastic rock of Dusty Rhodes & The River Band in their release “First You Live”. He also produced the beautifully powerful and vocal driven album by Chase Frank — “Smile Trials” as well as recordings of the Crystal Antlers, among others. This will be the second record for Ape Machine in as many years. The upcoming release will pack newly-formed fusions with prog and some “what-the-fuck-are-they-doing?”. All the while keeping your head bobbing and connecting the pain in your Root Chakra to your balls and your broken heart. Jeff Stuart Saltzman, Bryan Daste and Tony Lash have provided engineering and the album is currently being mixed. More updates soon!
