Washington DC’s Apes are set to rattle some cages on February 19, 2008 with the release of their fourth album, Ghost Games, (on Gypsy Eyes) and their first with singer (and visual artist) Breck Brunson. Having already gained some buzz recently with the exciting track “Beat on the Double,” the colorful, psychedelic-loving Apes have also been fortunate enough to tour with big buzz magnets such as Deerhunter and Spank Rock. On February 12, Apes will launch a tour in support of Ghost Games in Purchase, NY, and finish up on February 23 in Columbus, OH. Check out “Beat on the Double” here, and the full Apes tour itinerary after the jump.
