Ian Mabley - guitar, vocals Chris Sciotto - bass, vocals

"A Shrewdness of Apes started off with the collaboration of Ian Mabley and Dave Greek as an acoustic duo in late 2012. With the incorporation of their first drummer, Cesar Cotrina, in mid-2013, they named themselves after the collective noun for monkeys, which they thought represented their intricate, melodic yet heavy style.

With a cycling array of drummers, they released their first EP (Alpha) in March 2014. Ian moved to DC in October 2014 during the production of the band's second EP (Beta) and released it in January 2015. Sumeet Mahal, Ian's longtime friend, was recruited to play bass later that year. The band existed as a duo acoustic group until they recruited Jared Coffin to play drums in February 2017.

Their first full-length album was recorded in Fall 2018. Jared left the band that winter, claiming that his music tastes were changing and no longer aligned with A Shrewdness of Apes's sound. Sumeet was also replaced by Chris Sciotto in early 2019.

The full-length album is expected to be released in May 2019."
