Apes of the State is an independent acoustic 4-piece folk/pop/punk band from Lancaster, PA . Their songs combine elements of punk rock, folk, and bluegrass through clever and honest lyrics accompanied by percussive mandolin and guitar, classical violin, and harmonic vocals.
Active since 2015, they have released two full length studio albums and performed hundreds of shows across the US and Canada everywhere and anywhere including in small clubs, basements, backyards, and living rooms to the larger Warped Tour and TEDx stages. Their live performances are made intimate and interesting by their traditional style of performing gathered around a single microphone.   
Their songs tackle touch emotional and societal topics such as love, heartbreak, student loan debt, regret, and overcoming addiction. The members are heavily involved in activism for people recovering from substance use disorder and promoting harm reduction at their shows. In 2016, they founded an organization called Second Chance to Play which aims to help individuals in rehabs and in recovery communities participate in the music scene of their hometown Lancaster.
