The Apex Theory
The Apex Theory
The band's first (and only) singles, "Shhh... (Hope Diggy)" and "Apossibly" garnered the band mainstream success as both were featured extensively in MTV2's rotation. "Apossibly" was also used in promotion of the videogame Minority Report: Everybody Runs. The band toured for a good portion of the next few years in support of their major-label albums, first playing Vans Warped Tour and co-headlining MTV2's Tour with Lostprophets in 2001. In the summer of 2002, the band played on the second stage of Ozzfest. Later in 2002, vocalist Ontronik "Andy" Khachaturian (who previously played drums for System of a Down before founding The Apex Theory) left the band due to differences in musical opinions.
Khachaturian is currently involved in a solo project and a band dubbed VoKEE. After searching for a replacement, the remaining members decided to continue as a three-piece outfit, with guitarist Art Karamian taking responsibility for vocal duties as well. The Apex Theory officially resurfaced in 2004, self-releasing their latest EP, inthatskyissomethingwatching. Though the band has not embarked on a national tour as of yet, they have successfully played countless shows in their home state of California. On June 30, 2006, the band announced the completion of their first full-length album without their former vocalist, Ontronik. The album was titled Faces, and was released under the band name Mt.
