Underrated Portland heavy rockers Ape Machine kicked off a West Coast tour last night at the Star Theater in their hometown.
The run will take them down through California and into Texas for South by Southwest and then back up to Seattle over the next couple weeks with stops in Arizona along the way. Kind of standard procedure for Ape Machine by this time, as they seem to bust out West Coast dates on the regular. They’re still supporting 2013’s right-on-the-money Mangled by the Machine , but they’ll have a new live record, Live at Freak Valley, out through Ripple Music in May as well.
They’re also gearing up to record their next studio album, and are promising some new material on this tour, so if you happen to be in their path, it seems like solid reasoning to stay there.
