The band aPēdājs was founded in Mālpils, Latvia January 9, 1996. The first members of the band were Artūrs Jakovļevs (guitar, vocals, lyrics), Armands Butkevičs (drums) and Kaspars Grīnbergs (bass). aPēdājs had a variety of other artists play for them since their creation.
In 2007 aPēdājs experienced their biggest shakeup when the only remaining members were Artūrs Jakovļevs and Armands Butkevičs. At this time Lauris Polinskis joined as drummer and Armands Butkevičs switched to playing bass. Since this change they released their two albums and played the most concerts.
Popular themes are relationships, death, sex, suicide, and pain. Since the release of their album “Sēras” the band has earned reputation in the media of being "a pessimistic, gloomy porno rock band".[according to whom?] During interviews the band has shown their support for this statement.
