FIGHT LIKE APES RETURN WITH NEW SINGLE ‘JENNY KELLY’
aaamusic | On 05, Apr 2011
RELEASED APRIL 4th VIA MODEL CITIZEN
UK TOUR IN MAY
“Fight Like Apes may be the best band I have produced in years” – Andy Gill (Gang Of Four)
Fight Like Apes return to the fray with a new single – ‘Jenny Kelly’ – ahead of the release of their second long-player and UK tour.
‘Jenny Kelly’ is a typically Fight Like Apes skewed tribute to a character from the 1990’s low-budget Aussie TV sci-fi series ‘The Girl From Tomorrow’. The special effects on the show made ‘Blake’s 7’ look like ‘The Fifth Element’; and as such it has been embraced by Fight Like Apes as a trashy touchstone in their motley milieu.
‘Jenny Kelly’ is produced by the Gang Of Four’s Andy Gill and mixed by Chris Potter (The Verve, I Am Kloot); a taste of what’s to come from their splendidly christened new album ‘The Body Of Christ And The Legs Of Tina Turner‘; the follow-up to 2009’s debut ‘Fight Like Apes And The Mystery Of The Golden Medallion’. The album shall be released on April 25th.
Just released in their native Ireland, the new album charted at # 1 on iTunes and # 3 in the national charts. It has also been short listed for the Choice Music Prize, the Irish equivalent of the Mercury Prize.
‘Jenny Kelly’ will be released digitally on Model Citizen Records on 4th April ahead of their UK tour in early May.
