VIDEO: Fight Like Apes – Jenny Kelly


Fight Like Apes are set to unleash their new album ‘The Body Of Christ And The Legs Of Tina Turner’ on April 25th via Model Citizen Records.

Following ‘Jenny Kelly’, the first single to be taken from their second album ‘The Body Of Christ And The Legs Of Tina Turner’, this release sees our intrepid sonic stevedores sink deeper and darker into the treacly tar pits of their collective dank and fetid imagination. Here Indie Monsters are called out and slain. With pitch black rhymes and ridicule, Fight Like Apes take the tumescent cadaver of 21st century pop and hotwire it with a million volts of electro-punk therapy.

The bands world tour which saw them travel far and wide from New York to Newcastle, to Berlin to Benicassim, Fight Like Apes decamped to London to work under the production hand of Gang Of Four’s guitarist Andy Gill (past production duties have included Futureheads, Young Knives and Red Hot Chili Peppers).

The Dublin alt-rockers have already garnered a reputation for their raucous on stage antics and quirky track titles from the blogsphere to national music press alike. The album has already caused a furore on its initial release in Ireland in August, charting at # 1 in the digital charts and giving Katy Perry and Eminem a run for their money, entering at # 3 overall.
