Ripple Music have announced the signing of acclaimed, hard-hitting American heavy rockers Ape Machine to their roster.
The band's third album, Mangled by the Machine, is set for worldwide release on Ripple Music in the coming months, whilst the band takes off for a full-scale European Tour, including appearances at major heavy rock festivals.
The band have established a worldwide reputation for their unique blending of rock n' roll, blues, stoner-rock, and psychedelia. Their unusual band name is a homage to the days of reel-to-reel magnetic tape audio recording; a fitting moniker, as the band plays through vintage tube amplifiers and lays down its songs using exclusively throwback quality studio equipment.
Ape Machine commented yesterday upon the new alliance; "We are very excited to be a part of the Ripple family and to work with one of the most genuine heavy rock labels in the world! It's clear that these guys don't compromise in terms of putting out creative music and are true believers of heavy rock. The variety of bands and the sheer quality of music they've released speaks for itself. We're very honoured that our music earned its place among their ranks!"
