Where some bands see a limit to their ambitions and stop, Apes & Androids see that limit, check it out, and then keep on going, creating something new and wonderful with every step. Live, they are audacious, and believe in the spectacle of rock n roll. The band deal in events rather than gigs. Luminous skulls, glitter cannons and fluorescent lights make each gig a work of art.
Apes & Androids are Brian Jacobs and David Tobias – two old school friends with a love of the flamboyant and musical adventure. Their music recalls the operatic, over the top nature of Queen , whilst rubbing shoulders with Ziggy-era Bowie. Whilst other tracks see a big Prince kick added to the equation, The Police and Talking Heads murk in the background too, making their debut album ‘Blood Moon’ an incredible musical journey. Underpinning all these ideas and inspirations is a keen pop sensibility that will propel Apes & Androids into the national consciousness this year.
In New York, the Apes & Androids have been selling out venues for months. Prestigious venues such as Bowery Ballroom (2000 capacity) and Williamsburg Music Hall (1200) have both witnessed the carnival of sight and sound. Now it is the UK’s turn to see for the first time why Apes & Androids are generating such excitement.
‘Blood Moon’ was self-released in America last year to much critical-acclaim. His sprawling double album shows the ambition and the depth of this unique band’s talent. Look out for on its, and other releases, very soon.
Apes & Androids debut show will be at Adventures In The Beetroot Field at Fabric on 9th April. Taking the same headline slot that Neon Neon filled last year, the band are throwing themselves in at the deep end straight away. It promised to be one of the most talked about debut shows for a long time.

London-based electronic disco duo HEARTBREAK are Argentine singer Sebastian Muravchix and producer Ali Renault. Fusing the finer qualities of electro, Italo-disco and metal, Heartbreak’s powerful synth-pop is how the 80s would sound today if the 90s hadn’t gotten in the way. The fusion of Italo-disco with the dark metal energy of black sabbath has created the new genre of metallo.
