Apollo Junction are an anthemic electro-rock and roll band crossing genres with a raft of influences 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 Mystery 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 ‘Guten Tag Ramon’ 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.
2019 will see Apollo Junction deliver their debut album with a fistful of singles upfront to whet the appetite and a live plot that includes Camden Rocks Festival and a string of headline shows. Gigging has led to a significant international following. A recent gig in London saw a large group of dedicated fans travel from all across Europe to watch the band perform.
This fan-base, radio play and critical acclaim has 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 boxer Josh Warrington’s World Title fight. The band have caught the attention of everyone from Radio DJs to the national press, film directors, TV producers, Festival promoters and even international football legend Gareth Bale who has tweeted about his love of the group. The release of debut album Mystery comes on the back of a great deal of hard work, and marks the start of the next chapter of the band’s story.
