Apollo Junction are an anthemic electro-rock and roll band crossing genres and taking influence from Britpop to more modern times. Their huge choruses and driving rhythms get crowds singing and dancing all over the world. The first single “Begin” from the band's upcoming debut album generated national airplay across BBC Radio 2, 6Music, BBC Wales and was playlisted on Amazing Radio and multiple streaming platforms.
Apollo Junction’s songs capture the euphoria of electro-dance music mixed with strong indie guitar hooks, driving bass and passionate vocals. From New Order and U2, to The Cure and even Daft Punk, Apollo Junction use their influences to write insanely memorable, hugely uplifting tunes.
A publishing deal with WipeOut Music has led to Apollo Junction songs featuring on MTV’s U.S. hit reality show ‘Are You The One’ and in the movie ‘The Big Promise’ directed by award winning Mexican director J R Suarez. They’ve also had plays on Good Morning TV, MTV, E4 and ITV Calendar News and BBC Look North.
Playing ‘live’ they perform electro, indie, guitar-inspired songs infused with tuneful melodies with a mission to get the party going. 2019 will see Apollo Junction deliver their debut album with a fistful of singles upfront to whet the appetite and also combine a string of UK festival dates, including Camden Rocks Festival. Gigging has led to a large following of love and support from fans all over the world. A recent gig in London saw a ‘plane load’ of dedicated fans travel from all across Europe to watch the band perform on stage.
This fan-base, radio play and critical acclaim also helped them play a multitude of festivals including the Isle of Wight Festival three years in a row. A recent pre-match show at Leeds United’s Elland Road stadium led to them being invited to play at the Player of The Season Awards as guests of the team and also at the Josh Warrington World Title fight. The band have caught the attention of everyone from Radio DJs to the national press, to film directors, TV producers and Festival promoters. With their anthemic electro-rock and roll they are poised to make a real impact with the release of their debut album in 2019.
