Antenna The End is the passion project of bassist David Hakopyan (formerly of The Apex Theory) who eventually fleshed out an ensemble of a lineup. Last year, they released the first volume of a three song EP series, We Are What We Ate (INgrooves/TOYS.of.the.MASSES), which conjured an indie rock wall of sound (à la a rowdy Modest Mouse) but oft-returned to Hakopyan’s art metal past.

Antenna The End will release We Are What We Ate Vol. 2 on April 7th via INgrooves/TOYS.of.the.MASSES and perform at Whisky A Go Go on April 10th.
