APES ~ If You Want It

Good times, Ballarat rockers APES are back with a cracker of a new single  If You Want It, plus plans for a November East Coast tour. With a songwriting bent towards the melodic, rich and thoughtful, APES have nailed it again as far as WildnFree‘s concerned. Reported to have “spent the past two years deeply immersed in writing and recording,” the effort’s clearly paid off, and the band’s upcoming debut album, due out early 2017, should now be on the radar of anyone with sick taste in rock.

Produced by Michael Belsar (Hunting Grounds) and mastered by Brian Lucey (Arctic Monkeys, Black Keys, Saskwatch, Ryan Bingham), rock out to If You Want It in their launch shows listed below. Also, catch them at CERES album launch at Northcote Social Club Oct 28, followed by ‘Karova’ween’ a special hometown halloween show at Karova Lounge, Ballarat on Oct 29. A stage invasion may happen, and lead singer/guitarist Ben Dowd will no doubt put on an intense and mesmerising performance.

Get a sneak peak with this recent footage of If You Want It at the Rolling Stone Live Lodge AKA The Workers Club:
