I first heard The Chimpz at a house party in LA and was hooked! Their mixture of intense energy and catchy lyrics never fail to put a smile on my face and get me grooving to the beat.
The explosive music of The Chimpz was born and developed from their everyday struggles in the streets of Los Angeles. Their songs are a Street savvy chronicle of their musical journey through the hustle and flow of life in LA.
There is something for everyone as their influences span the punk rock, heavy metal, hip hop, and hard rock genres.
The new EP, California, was produced by Ryan Greene (Bad Religion, NOFX, Megadeth), and is available on ITunes and Amazon
The Chimpz’s music has been heard on several episodes of “Sons of Anarchy”(new song “Right To Left” was used in episode 2 on 9/16 of Season 7”), every episode of MTV’s “Bam Margera’s Unholy Union”, NBC’s “The Challenge”, MTV’s “Real World”, Fox Sports, Animal Planet’s “My Cat From Hell”, Action Sports TV show “Adrenalina” and more!
In addition to playing festivals such as Rocklahoma, Rockstar Uproar Fest, Seattle Hemp Fest, and Venice Summerfest, The Chimpz just wrapped up a 60+ US tour from September through October and plan on touring into 2015.
The band’s Sponsors & Touring Partners include Jagermeister, Sabian Cymbals, Schecter Guitars, Sullen Clothing, Coffin Case, Equation Audio, Bogner Amps, Audio 2000’s, and Outlaw Threadz.
