The Chimpz are composed of Artimus Prime on lead vocals, Doug Weiand on guitar, Shawn Lyon on bass, and Sean “Cappy” Topham on drums. Fans can find The Chimpz at the following locations:
Madness To Creation: The Chimpz have released the music video for “Everything Is Gone”, take us into that video and song.
Artimus: We filmed the video at JBL Harmon’s experience center and was able to use all their Martin lighting. We are stoked on how it came out!
The song is about going through hard times, staying strong, and beating the obstacles.
Madness To Creation: Favorite and least favorite thing about making music videos.
Artimus: Favorite is being able to express our selves and seeing people get joy out of our music. Least favorite is being stranded out on the road with a blown transmission. Lol!
Madness To Creation: Tell us about your favorite and least favorite thing about your music scene!
Artimus: Favorite is being in Los Angeles there is something going on almost every night. Least favorite is, not a lot of LA clubs are willing to pay the bands. It is pretty cutthroat out here.
Madness To Creation: One reason and one reason only why we should go see The Chimpz in concert.
Artimus: It’s a party!
Madness To Creation: Favorite live performance memory of all time and least favorite memory.
Artimus: Favorite, playing at Rocklahoma and seeing someone swinging a prosthetic leg in the air.
Artimus: Thanks so much for having The Chimpz!
We love you!!!
