A Primitive Evolution



A Primitive Evolution. (A.P.E.)  creates constantly evolving soundtrack to our world using its brand of dark electronic metal. Recorded at Desolation Studios in Toronto, the new album, "Becoming", features collaborations with writer/producer Ian D’Sa (Billy Talent) & Audio Engineer Kenny Luong (Metric). Raw & visceral with soul & beauty, A Primitive Evolution is best consumed live and/or at extremely loud volumes.

With featured inclusion in films such as “Chastity Bites” & “Suck” A.P.E's music has also been used on  the television shows “Degrassi: The Next Generation,” & the cartoon network series “Stoked.” In 2015 the band received the award for “Best Rock Band” from the Toronto Independent Music Awards & since then has been working tirelessly on its new album. The band has done countless tours, showcases for prestigious festivals such as Indie Week, NXNE & Canadian Music Week & received praise from industry stalwarts Alan Cross (CFNY Radio) & George Strombolopolous (MuchMusic, CBC).

Pulling together a complex array of influences including Nine Inch Nails, The Cure, Tool, The Prodigy, Ministry, Radiohead, Alice in Chains, Vivaldi, Guns n’ Roses & more, A.P.E.'s rhythm-based attack blurs the lines of rock, electronica & all aspects between.
