Ape Machine to Release ‘War to Head’ in September

Portland-based rockers Ape Machine will be releasing their sophomore LP, ‘War to Head,’ on September 20 via Ape Machine Music. The album was recorded at The Magic Closet Studios with Isaiah “Ikey” Owens (Mastodon, The Mars Volta, TV on the Radio) and mixed at Supernatural Sound.

Guitarist Ian Watts stated, “We went into the studio with the idea of slamming out a record that’s played live, heavy-as-shit and the way we feel it should be done. Bringing Ikey Owens in as producer and guest organist added another dimension and a musical co-conspirator. We kept things fully analog throughout the mix process for an end result that’s raw, uncut Ape Machine.”
