Bio

The Sweet Apes are a female fronted quintet from the inner west of Sydney, channeling an array of influences to create a sound that conveys passion, strength and beauty. With a soaring lead vocal complementing a heavy rhythmic engine room, The Sweet Apes add fresh fuel to the fire that is Australian heavy music. On the back of opening Sydney Soundwave in 2012, as well as slots at Sounds Loud Festival and Push Over Festival at the start of 2012 and 2013, The Sweet Apes have taken their brand of Melodic Popcore around the country, experiencing great success in front of a vast variety of audiences. Bolstered by a national headline tour through May to July of 2013 along the East Coast of Australia, before touring nationally with Loud Festival in August, The Sweet Apes prepare to release their new single "Flight", hitting the road in support of the track with The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus (US) and Red Beard (QLD) for 7 dates across Australia in November, with headline dates in December to follow. www.facebook.com/TheSweetApes www.youtube.com/innocentfiend http://itunes.apple.com/au/album/the-sweet-apes-ep/id566343341

The Sweet Apes return with a real brute force tune. High drama with the suped-up production and the vocals come charged up with emotional intensity.

love the production on the drums, and i think you're getting a ways to achieveing your goal of hardcored while maintaining the feminine vocals (without sounding like Evanesence or some such). Cool stuff.
