Hailing from Dublin, and fresh off your with [b:5e01ea96e2]The Ting Tings[/b:5e01ea96e2], [b:5e01ea96e2]Fight Like Apes[/b:5e01ea96e2] combine the Synth with the Sword in a heroic conflagration of loutish vocals, brutal bass and digital distortion. Following what has been an incredibly successful year for the band, they return to Belfast on December 3rd to play [b:5e01ea96e2]The Stiff Kitten[/b:5e01ea96e2], headlining a special [b:5e01ea96e2]BBC Across The Line[/b:5e01ea96e2] showcase.
Warming to the thrilling FLA live experience, audiences first stopped leaving and then started coming to their gigs. Encouraged, Fight Like Apes released two EP's in 2007 on Dublin independent label Fifa Records. The first one – 'How Am I Supposed To Kill You If You Have All The Guns' - spawned 'Jake Summers' (a fan letter to 90's teen-drama 'California Dreams' ); which was picked up by Fierce Panda offshoot Cool For Cats for a UK 7" single release.
Further UK touring with Untitled Musical Project (on the Artrocker tour) and The Von Bondies preceded a trip to SXSW, before the group moved onto Seattle this Spring to record their debut album with producer John Goodmanson (Los Campesinos, Sleater-Kinney, Bikini Kill), which was releaased in September 2008 on new Irish indie Model Citizen.
Inhabiting a topsy-turvy world, where [b:5e01ea96e2]Mclusky[/b:5e01ea96e2]'s hardcore shred rubs raw against kung fu queen Cynthia Rothrock, Fight Like Apes choose music as their weapon; a synth-stained hybrid of tasers and nunchucks in high-voltage pop songs the size of Saturn. It's the Apes' planet - we just live on it.

The bassplayer from Fight Like Apes is Rigsy in a wig. Buckfast and all. Note demolished drum kit -- always found that was a good way to avoid playing a second encore.
