A Shrewdness of Apes (ASOA) is DC prog, an ambitious three-piece inspired by the likes of Tool, Queens of the Stone Age, Yes, and Alice in Chains. Their palate ranges from heavy effects-saturated riffs to intricate odd meter acoustic melodies. They formed in 2013, and since then have relocated from Richmond and have released 4 EPs and 2 full-length albums. They've been nominated as finalists in the Hard Rock categories four years in a row in the DC area Wammie awards. With A Shrewdness of Apes, expect the musically unexpected.
