Indie Band The Fire Apes Releasing New Album

Indie Band The Fire Apes are gearing up to release their latest album, A Life In Letters, out May 23. The South Carolina pop/rock act is fronted by lead singer, songwriter and guitarist, John Seymour, who often writes metaphorically about love and relationships using literary references, musically framed with melodic hooks.

His music and words can elicit feelings that range from joy and happiness to commiseration and longing. He credits The Beatles, Oasis, Green Day, The Pretenders and Fountains of Wayne as strong influences. “A Life in Letters” is guaranteed to be the summer music must have of 2011.
