FROM THE ALBUM

BECOMING

OUT NOW

[METROPOLIS]

“Captivating, pulse racing and euphoric, APE have produced an album that draws you in from the

start and takes you on a roller coaster of spine-tinging excitement. 9 out of 10”

POWERPLAY

“They have the depth of composition you’d expect from A Perfect Circle, the ballsy clout you’d get

from Filter or Stabbing Westward/The Dreaming, and the soulful beauty of Radiohead and the

more rock leaning Muse”

MIDLANDS METALHEADS

“A confident mixture of heavy and mellow, hard and soft, and brings something new to the table.

APE are stepping up to the big leagues”

THE MIDLANDS ROCKS

A Primitive Evolution (A.P.E.) is an alternative rock band based in Toronto, Canada. Formed in
2007, they have developed at their own pace, creating a constantly evolving soundtrack utilising
their brand of dark industrial rock.
’Becoming’ is the group’s third album and was released in late 2018. Recorded at their own
Desolation Studios, it includes collaborations with writer/producer Ian D’Sa (Billy Talent) and
engineer Kenny Luong (Metric).
Raw and visceral yet displaying soul and beauty, the 13 tracks that comprise ’Becoming’ blur the
boundaries between rock, metal and electronica and show off an array of influences that include
Nine Inch Nails, The Cure, Tool, The Prodigy, Ministry, Radiohead, Alice In Chains and Guns N’
Roses.
With featured inclusion in films such as ‘Chastity Bites’ and the vampire musical ‘Suck’, A.P.E.’s
music has also been used in several TV shows, while locally they have won the ‘Best Rock Band’
gong at the Toronto Independent Music Awards.
