FIGHT LIKE APES - Fight Like Apes (2023 Reissue) - CD




Returning for just a couple of goodbye shows, Fight Like Apes, quite simply, are one of Dublin's finest ever live bands! Acerbic and exotic. Individual and evocative, Fight Like Apes have toured the UK with The Von Bondies, The Ting Tings, New Found Glory and The Prodigy and have played stacks of Irish and European festivals throughout their career.They have appeared on several television shows in Ireland, including Tubridy Tonight, WeTV, The View, Other Voices and The Cafe. They have also had some success in Asia, where they have been signed up by Sony Music Entertainment Japan for an album release on that continent in April 2009. The band have been nominated for five Meteor Music Awards, the Choice Music Prize and got three top 3 charting albums... One of them named the best album of the decade by Phantom FM.

Fight Like Apes were named the fourth best Irish musical act of their generation by The Irish Times in 2009. Preceded by lead single 'Pretty Keen on Centrefolds' is perhaps the very best moment of their third, self-titled, album - Fight Like Apes, finally being issued on vinyl for the VERY first time ever. Released in conjunction with the vinyl preorder, it celebrates this iconic band who, even 6 years after they split up, managed to sell out Dublin Olympia in under 24 hours.

24th March - Dublin, Olympia Theatre (Sold Out) "It exhibits a new phase for a band with bucketloads of imagination - as well as catchy choruses" - The Irish Times
