Apollo SteamTrain

Rock band from New Zealand.

 

 

 Apollo SteamTrain are a four piece juggernaut of a band with their roots planted firmly in the British rock scene.
 
Featuring Les Robinson, formerly of Taranaki legends The Nod on guitar, the well travelled Ian Clark on bass, alongside James Bos on drums, formely of Nine Mile Stone in the engine room, the rhythm section delivers a powerful platform from which singer/guitarist Brendan McCarthy then builds his hook infused rock ‘n’ roll tales.
 
Apollo SteamTrain have toured extensively around the Shaky Isles from  their base in Tauranga and have a deal in place with Songbroker which  has seen their tracks synced on several high profile TV shows including  Shortland Street and Filthy Rich.
 
Looking to take things to the next level AST have enlisted  internationally renowned producer Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers, OpShop, Catatonia, The Feelers, Six60), recording 2 songs at Neil Finn's  Round Head Studios and mixed in the UK by Tui award winning Engineer  Clint Murphy and mastered in New York at Sterling Sound by Ryan Smith.
 
The 2018 plan for Apollo SteamTrain is to release music and play as many live shows as possible. The new single "Superstition (Looking in the Mirror)" is out now on all digital platforms.

With considerable collective experience, the members of Apollo SteamTrain Brendan McCarthy, Les Robinson, Ian Clark and James Bos all know the ups and downs of working in an industry that can sometimes be rather daunting, but are prepared to go the distance and take the music as far as it will go.
