The Apers are a Dutch pop punk band who formed in Rotterdam in 1996.[1] They have released their first three albums on Stardumb Records, then released their 2007 album Reanimate My Heart on Sonic Rendezvous Records in Europe, and Insubordination Records in the USA, before moving on to Asian Man Records. They have played about 700 shows all over Europe and the USA. The band is often compared to Screeching Weasel, not lastly because of frontman Kevin Aper's snotty vocal delivery, reminiscent of Ben Weasel.[2][3][4][5]
