Apollo Junction are a band on the rise having just delivered their third (and best) album ‘Here We Are’ and embarking on their biggest-ever UK tour.
The band have a passionate, growing fanbase that calls themselves the ‘AJFamily’ - there have been engagements on stage, lifetime friendships formed, coaches to gigs hired and an online community that is pretty much unmatched by any other independent band around at the moment and incredibly welcoming to all.
The band - Described recently by Steve Lamacq on BBC6 music as swaggering electro-indie rock, appeals to audiences who still have a profound love of guitar music, with nods to the iconic sounds of the 80s as well as more contemporary guitar band peers.
Apollo Junction songs have been used across a multitude of media outlets, including;
Welcome To Wrexham on Disney Plus, The ITV1 World Cup coverage, Ubisoft’s WatchDogs Legion video game, MTV’s Are you the One, Netflix’s series The Circle, BBC1’s Football Focus, numerous features on Match Of The Day and various other adverts/films.
The band also receive continued support across radio with support nationally from Graham Norton, Steve Lamacq, Chris Hawkins, Tom Robinson, Simon Le Bon on his show on Sirius XM in the US and also the late, great Janice Long who did a live session with the band on BBC Radio 2.
2023 has seen the band at full force with them playing a packed-out stage at the Isle of Wight festival and in the past supporting Kaiser Chiefs and the Pigeon Detectives on a string of UK tour dates, plus performances at festivals such as Bingley Weekender, Pub in the Park, Scarborough Open Air Theatre, The Piece Hall, plus their own headline tours right across the country.
Drawing comparisons with iconic northern guitar bands like The Housemartins and The Smiths, Sandra’s Wedding are a Goole-based band who wear their working class routes firmly on their sleeves.
With catchy songs full of bright, jangly guitars and clever lyrics about northern life, the band’s 2017 debut album ‘Northern Powerhouse’ and 2018 follow-up EP ‘Good Morning, Bad Blood’ were both met with rave reviews.
Revivalry are a Cleethorpes UK, teenage band aged 15 - 16 that are making waves, comprising Ben Townsend (vocals & guitar), Josh Corfield (vocals & bass) and Lewis Hubbert (drums). Already having supported Reverend & The Makers and Corella as well as having played gigs and festivals around the country, including Kendal Calling, Tramlines and Humber Street Sesh their Indie Rock style is gaining critical acclaim and an ever-growing fan base. They cite Nirvana, Arctic Monkeys, Supergrass and The Reytons among their influences.
Recently described by The Sherlocks as a “Proper Band” and described by The Reytons as “going to make some big waves” as well as having a Sky TV appearance, their own radio shows and recordings from the world famous Rockfield studios already behind them the future looks bright.
