Kill Matilda/ Double Experience/ Piece of Mind / Northern Saints

8pm/ $6 door / 19+

 

Kill Matilda
Sweaty sexy zombie hunting dance punkers
We find you all very attractive in a sexual way
Live performance, murder, madness, vengeance, shotgunning beers in the alley behind the bar we're about to play in, social justice, mosh pits, ibanez guitars, fender amps, skate shoes, greasy spoon restaurants, politics, economics, literature, sweaty sexy punk rock

Double Experience
Neo-Nerd Rock from Ottawa, ON
Double Experience believe in cold facts. 
FACT: You don't like your time being wasted.
FACT: Double Experience have toured across six countries, performing over 500 shows and travelling over 100,000 miles.
FACT: Double Experience are bringing the "roll" back into rock music
FACT: You have never heard of Double Experience.

The band aim to change the latter by way of their latest album, "721835"; a curious collection of songs that demand to be heard. The album was released exclusively in the form of trading cards in 2013 prior to it's upcoming physical release in 2014. (each card contained different songs, videos, pictures and other hidden features created by the band for the collector to discover). Concocting their own brew of progressive art rock without any of the brooding seriousness, Double Experience crafted the album intent on reinstating the lightheartedness and good nature they felt was absent from modern rock music, resulting in what can best be described as prog rock for the ADD generation. "721835" was recorded by fellow science-fiction aficionado Al Jacob (He is Legend, A Skylit Drive) in North Carolina.

But even futuristic, forward-thinking bands have a past, and Double Experience are no exception. Their previous album, "One Big Quicksand", was technically their debut release – they just weren't called Double Experience yet. The album was recorded and produced by up-and-comer Jayson DeZuzio (Coheed and Cambria, My Chemical Romance) mere weeks after the bands union on Canada Day, 2011 and released via Blue Sapphire/Universal Music Canada.

From the spring of 2012 onward. the band continued to perform headlining tours in Canada as well as the United Kingdom and the USA, booking hundreds of shows independently from outside forces. During this time, Double Experience were also given the opportunity to record theme music for "The Legend of Thunder", a popular Machinima director / Video Game Commentator with over 59 million channel views. Playing everywhere from impromptu shows in video game stores to tattoo conventions in stadiums, their travels also included a showcase at Canadian Music Week 2014 and a fifty date tour of the United Kingdom.

And although you've still never heard of Double Experience, after everything you just read, you can't wait to change that.

Fact.

London ON Metal Community Gathering

Come hang out and chill with a bunch of fellow Metal Freaks. Tuesdays, sometimes each week, you need to check this event, which will be re-upped to give you current info. We will be scheduling special nights, Guest DJs, Drink and food specials.



Message from Marty (Martin Ryersee) APK sound tech and local metal scene supporter.

What's up all you metal maniacs. I wanna see our metal community come together here. This will be a good opportunity to share contacts, organize shows and share new material for current bands as well as give newer players (and currently band-less players) the opportunity to find other people to jam with. This is a great spot to come up with new ideas to improve this already very talented scene. ALL SUB GENRE'S OF METAL ARE WELCOME. If it's heavy then it's metal in the eyes of this group. Also be sure to invite your friends who are players (or even if they aren't players). The more the merrier.

Sweet & Lowdown / Chioco Dusty / Ev & The Campfire Soul


Sweet and Lowdown is a Toronto Indie rock band that has been gaining a following in the 416 after performing with popular touring acts The Ataris, Into It Over It, Weatherbox and Teenage Kicks. 

Sweet and Lowdown serves the indie rock koolaid.

Sweet and Lowdown is what happens when you put a handful of 90's babies in a room full of musical instruments, toxic vices and tasteful rom-coms.

Chico Dusty is a Hamilton blues rock band that has gained a large following in Hamilton and has been playing successful shows in Kitchener, Waterloo, Burlington and Toronto.
The most trusty Chico Dusty
Chico Dusty's interpretation of rock and roll was birthed in an attic with the help of whiskey, cowboy movies, and the occasional wrestling match.Listening to Chico Dusty is kind of like waking up 45 minutes before your alarm, going back to sleep, then having a dream that you've been selected to be the lotion boy on the Miss Hawaiian Tropic Tour bus. Young to the rock game, the boys from Chico D are on the upside.

The "Beginning" tour Oz Goode w/The Mongrels / Joani Paige

The roots of OzGoode lie in the creative partnership of co-founders Phillips and Joseph Pittari. They first met in film school in 1998 and have since worked closely together for the past fifteen years, in both Los Angeles and Toronto. While collaborating on making the film Breathe, they pooled their musical talents to create its soundtrack. Joseph recalls that, upon discovering that its songs were finding a welcoming audience in Europe and the U.S., “we quickly moved from writing to actually performing. Once that took root, there was no stopping us, and we wanted to record and play our music full time.”

The dynamic duo's music has earned international exposure in a wide range of settings. Phillips wrote the soundtrack for the acclaimed feature film Good People Bad Things, a movie he also wrote, directed and produced and that sold to over 20 countries. One of its songs, "Missing You," was recorded by Canadian songstress Ambre McLean, becoming an AC Top 40 chart hit.
 

The band was then fully rounded out in early 2015 with the addition of Vanessa Huneault.

MY HOLLOW / INSURRECTION / MATTER IN THE MEDIUM / MUTUAL EXECUTION

MY HOLLOW / INSURRECTION / MATTER IN THE MEDIUM / MUTUAL EXECUTION
9PM / 19+ / 

Alright, we'll admit, this ain't no Bolt Thrower; but each and every one of these brutal-as-fuk bands are gonna give those limey bastards a run for their hard-earned money! No doubt!

First up, we have a band that needs no introduction, as they are the only one of their kind in Southern Ontario dealin this shit - the mighty MUTUAL-FUCKING-EXECUTION!!!! We can't think of a better way to start the night than a heaping does of thrash metal mayhem!!!!! Our boys will be hittin the stage around 10... best to get there early and get a couple into ya before the assault!

Next up is the return of London veterans, MATTER IN THE MEDIUM. We've been talking to these guys for months about their come-back show, and we feel there is no better welcome back for the boys than this night of progressive death groove! It should also be mentioned that the band features none other than Goran Mamika of London's own NIHILITY and TORTURED SAINT!

If that ain't enough, we have the co-headlining tandem of Quebec's INSURRECTION and Toronto's MY HOLLOW. Honestly, there is no better pairing - with both bands destroying with their very own brand of the metalz of death... let the APK pit roar!!!!!

The Velveteins / Freight Train/ Youngest and Only / Radio Caroline

Edmonton AB rock and roll group The Velveteins
Addison Hiller
a.hiller@hotmail.com
Bio - "The Velveteins are a rock n' roll group from sunny Edmonton, Alberta. Their music first rose to public attention after the release of their second EP 'Fresh Claws'. Graham White of Geyser Music called it "one of the most impressive albums of 2014, enjoyable from beginning to end, nostalgically fresh with a sound that defies the musical status quo." Following the albums release the band received a nomination for the 'Rising Star' award at the 2014 Edmonton Music Awards and embarked on a Western Canadian tour. In November The Velveteins flew to Nashville to record their new album with producer Lincoln Parish of Cage the Elephant. The album is currently in the final stages of mixing and is set for release in spring of 2015 on Weiner Records, followed by a full Canadian tour which includes a date at this years Canadian Music Week in Toronto."

Summering + Fighter / Lover

post-rock / psyche / ambient
https://forsummering.bandcamp.com/releases
https://www.facebook.com/forsummering

Fighter/Lover (Toronto) 
synth / pop / experimental / rock 
https://fighterlover.bandcamp.com/

Summering is an amalgam of psychedelic and post-rock influences, whose unusual combination of poetic folk-inspired vocals, and tightly-wound yet gradually unravelling heavy rock instrumentals, have quickly won them a place in their local musical community of Vancouver, British Columbia.
Fronted by singer-songwriter Paul Stewart and his wholly unique crystalline vocal delivery, their complicated and mesmerizing instrumental combinations afford a wealth of possibilities, and each track unwinds slowly behind Stewart's haunting voice like a menacing weight. 
Summering fill their songs not with shoegaze-inspired effects processes but rather with alternating soft-spoken poetry and utterly heavy rock riffs. With the collected experience of the entire west face of Canada, Summering come on like art-rock for prairie folk or a heavier instrumental collective for the Pacific Northwest.

Artificial Dissemination / ++

9PM / $7 /19+

Artificial Dissemination is a 2-piece garage-punk-surf nightmare from WAY out there.
A 2-piece stripped down garage-punk nightmare. Jamie Problem - drums & vox. Shawna Heist - guitars & backup vox .
Artificial Dissemination is an audio, visual and print form of expression that exposes and opposes the dissemination of false information which keeps us ignorant and living in fear of each other. We become obsessed and preoccupied with our differences instead of celebrating what we have in common.

It's about the glare of the TV cameras, computer screens, consumerism and the entertainment industry that distracts us while the lab coats poison our bodies with pharmaceuticals and the multinationals play god with a genetically altered food supply and the power brokers poison our minds with garbage and misinformation.

But most of all it's about the music and it's ability to expose this corruption, express the anger we feel and give us the power to do something about it!

Doom Squad is a Hip Hop group from Edmonton, AB consisting of 3 artists; Kryple, NineLivez & Trippz

The group has been together since the end of 2010 and has already gained a huge fan base across Canada & the rest of the world. They have opened for almost every big Hip Hop artist that has come to Edmonton in the last 4 years, and have performed well over 150 shows across Canada, and numerous reputable music festivals.

Doom Squad has released 3 projects as a group so far, the first being a mixtape titled ‘Countdown To Doomsday’ in December of 2013. Just a little over a year later they released their first album titled ‘The Proper Project’ in January of 2014 with the release of their single & video Captain Chronic. 

In February of 2014 Doom Squad started their ‘Monthly Cyphers’ which is a cypher style music video that features a different Edmonton hip hop artist every month. On Christmas Day 2014 they released another mixtape titled “The Monthly Cypher Mixtape” consisting the audio of every cypher released in 2014 and is available for free online. 

Currently the Squad is working on 3 separate solo projects that are all set to be released in the Spring of 2015 to coincide with their ‘D$4L Tour’ as well as the ‘Countdown To Doomsday 2’ mixtape which is set to be released in the Fall. 

Kryple, NineLivez & Trippz are all also established solo artists and have all competed on the KOTD stage in the battle rap format. With their high energy stage performance, clean & passionate sound, and machine like work ethic, Doom Squad has only good things in their future and will likely be one of the top names in Canadian hip hop, if not the world very soon.

For just over 20 years, our quiet little Southern Ontario city, situated along the Quebec City–Windsor Corridor, has made its very own dent on the world stage of death metal. From those early days, which produced home-grown, first-generation talent such as Flesh Feast, Porno, Summertime Daisies, and Blood Of Christ, London has refused to let the spirit of brutality die... death metal is stronger than ever in the Forest City!

With hellfire in hand - proudly brandishing the inhuman torch of second-generation, London, Ontario death metal - we are proud to welcome back the guttural two-some that is FETUS FEAST!!!! For those who don't know, the band features members from both Ataxia and Trilateral.

Joining us in welcoming back our friends in Fetus are two of Toronto's heaviest, old-school-sounding death metal acts. Let us introduce...

IRIHIS: Don't let their lack of years on this planet fool you, as they more than make up for it in sheer ferociousness of death metal craftsmanship. With a sound not unlike early Deicide, Suffocation, and Dying Fetus, prepare to be time-warped back to the early 90s.

CUFF: Smack dab in the middle of this tasty death metal sam'ich, this brutal two-some are self-professed practitioners of 'Sci-fi Slam Grind'. Not easy to describe with mere words, we encourage you to visit their page and listen to their latest slab of death metal insanity, entitled Transient Suffering Through the Ergosphere.

Rock ' n' Roll Rent Party - The Mongrels wsg Fireball Grant and Whatwave Dave

Best Rock and Roll for a Sunday Afternoon! 

Rock'n'Roll Rent Party happens the first sunday of every month at APK in downtown London Ontario. It's an afternoon/early evening event running from 3 till 7PM which gives you plenty of time to recover for your return to the salt mines on monday.

The event will feature local pub rock combo The Mongrels as the resident band, and each month there will be another band joining them. For this show, we've got one man band Fireball Grant opening.

There is no cover, it's a pass the hat around to help pay the bands and there might be some surprises as every one so far has had some.

The event will be MC'd by whatwave dave of CHRW's Radio What Wave, heard every thursday at 6PM.

So get your dancing shoes shined up and come on down for all the action at APK on Sunday April 5th 2015, your last chance to party before the holidays are over and it's back to work.

Fireball Grant is a one man blues/folk/punk band from Watford Ontario. He plays guitar, harmonica, sings and drums, sometimes all at the same time. This gives his music a timeless sound....think early 50's rock'n'roll meetis mid 60's folk protest meets late 70's punk all rolled into one! It's a very unique sound that can only be described as Fireball Grant one man blues band!! Fireball plays the one man band fests and we're lucky to get him for our next Rock'n'Roll Rent Party.

Here's a link to Fireball Grants facebook page:

https://www.facebook.com/fireball.grant?fref=ts

Here's a link to his Reverbnation page:

http://www.reverbnation.com/fireballgrant


And as always, The Mongrels will be playing 2 sets of rock'n'roll right after Fireball Grant.

Here's some video of The Mongrels:

Electric Revival / Swerve / Cover Blaze

19+ / 9pm / $5

 

The Electric Revival have released a new studio album, FREAKS! Check them out on their cross Canada tour!

https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Electric-Revival/212968818722596
http://www.reverbnation.com/theelectricrevival
https://itunes.apple.com/ca/artist/the-electric-revival/id578428376


1930s film director Tod Browning probably never listened to much heavy music in his day, but he most certainly understood what it meant to stand apart from the crowd. Such was the cinematic bite of his black and white thriller Freaks.

While the three members of The Electric Revival may not have had that cult classic in mind when they named their new album, guitarist-vocalist Ian Dillon, drummer Dallas Lobb and bassist Dan Toews are no strangers to playing the role of disenfranchised misfits who thrive on performing before an awestruck crowd.

“We grew up in Innisfail, about an hour north of Calgary. You could only skateboard four months a year, so there was nothing to do but drink beer and play guitars. It also meant that the garage bands you had to choose from were into either country or metal,” says Dillon. “I met Dallas and Dan in junior high, at age 14, and like most small town kids we left for the city as soon as we were out of school. We had always been in revolving metal bands over the years, so when we started the group, in 2009, we really wanted to get back to the basics, drums, guitars, amps. We tried to be as primitive as possible and focus on being a solid band.”

It would be three years before the nocturnal trio formally introduced themselves to their audience, raising the curtain on their debut album, Presenting: The Electric Revival, in 2012. The blues-soaked trio decided to keep the ball rolling by releasing a new single every week for 13 weeks that summer. Tightening their grip, The Electric Revival launched their glorious Pirate Radio LP in July of 2013 and followed it up with yet another album, 5 Songs by Electric Revival, four months later. No wonder the band was recently picked up by Cruzer Media. And, achieving international distribution was all the more incentive for Dillon, Dallas, and Dan to dive back into the studio and get their eponymous Freak on.

“The new album was recorded over the course of three weeks, during April of 2014, at Electric Park Studio in Calgary. I produced and engineered the record myself with assistant engineer Jonny Vincent and our pre-production engineer, Steven Lilly. Freaks was recorded live off the floor, together as a band, all in one room using very basic recording techniques… and the best modern digital recording equipment available. We were able to get our hands on a couple of cool synthesizers and used them and the organ a lot on this record, we really like the way it helped fill out the sound.”

Full is an understatement. Freaks kicks off with the explosive howler “My Molly My” a blow-your-hair-back and bury-the-needle joyride that slams into the cerebral cortex like a grasshopper hitting the windshield. Swerving out of the fast lane, the CB heartbreaker “Rolling Stone” postures up for a space truckin’ riff-off that would have Johnny Winter tipping his hat in respect. Southern swelter and soul are grist for the mill on “Wild Child” and “Baby Please (Come Home)”, while the two-edged sword of “Feed My Love” cuts to the drone, scratchin’ for an ‘80s punk fix. Did I just say punk? Yes, it’s in there too!

“The songs are about love, death, freedom, sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll, they explore a lot of territory while maintaining The Electric Revival sound. We never want to limit ourselves creatively. We wanted to the extra mile for the new album, so we threw a big party at the studio for about 30 friends. Just like the good old days!”

Available now, Freaks is fated to send epic ripples across The Electric Revival’s smoke-hazed horizons.

MY HOLLOW / INSURRECTION / MATTER IN THE MEDIUM / MUTUAL EXECUTION

Alright, we'll admit, this ain't no Bolt Thrower; but each and every one of these brutal-as-fuk bands are gonna give those limey bastards a run for their hard-earned money! No doubt!

First up, we have a band that needs no introduction, as they are the only one of their kind in Southern Ontario dealin this shit - the mighty MUTUAL-FUCKING-EXECUTION!!!! We can't think of a better way to start the night than a heaping does of thrash metal mayhem!!!!! Our boys will be hittin the stage around 10... best to get there early and get a couple into ya before the assault!

Next up is the return of London veterans, MATTER IN THE MEDIUM. We've been talking to these guys for months about their come-back show, and we feel there is no better welcome back for the boys than this night of progressive death groove! It should also be mentioned that the band features none other than Goran Mamika of London's own NIHILITY and TORTURED SAINT!

If that ain't enough, we have the co-headlining tandem of Quebec's INSURRECTION and Toronto's MY HOLLOW. Honestly, there is no better pairing - with both bands destroying with their very own brand of the metalz of death... let the APK pit roar!!!!!



My Hollow

Insurrection
