Apollo Stands represent a fresh take on heavy music, combining metalcore stylings and old-school heavy metal influences with touches of modern drum and bass, 90s synthesizers and epic, orchestral styles.
Hailing from Norwich, UK, the band’s formation in 2016 was swiftly followed by the release of debut full-length ‘Join Us’ - earning them a second place at the E.A.M.T Awards and a nomination for Album Of The Year by Dr John’s Rock Surgery.
Following years saw a slew of high profile support and festival slots; including performances as main support to Megalomatic, Setraline, Eveline’s Dust and Fingers Crossed; and appearances at Rockstock Festival, Trick Bag Festival, Volume 19 Festival and Thrashersaurus Festival - topped off by a sellout show at The Waterfront, Norwich and second place at the local Bloodstock Metal 2 The Masses tournament.
2020 sees the release of Apollo Stand’s EP, Minds - featuring lead single, Psyparadar.
