Windsor, Ontario’s The Apex are doing some big things. The self-described “ghetto tech” band recently opened for The Dillinger Escape Plan in Toronto, just before the icons announced their indefinite hiatus (but we don’t think The Apex had anything to do with that). The band also independently released their new EP, Underbelly, today (August 17) and are concurrently embarking on their third tour of the past year.

The vocalist discusses joining The Apex following the disbandment of his previous band Dismata, and talks about the new EP and how it compares to their debut album. He also explains the meaning behind “ghetto tech,” discloses what it’s like to have a neurogenic stammer (or verbal block), and more. Continue Reading
