Apollo SteamTrain

Rock band from New Zealand.

 

 

Apollo SteamTrain are a New Zealand rock band formed in Tauranga in 2016.

The band is essentially a musical platform to host the continuing project of singer/songwriter Brendan McCarthy, who is the group's sole constant member.

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.

Recently the band enlisted internationally renowned producer Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers, OpShop, Catatonia, The Feelers, Six60), recording 2 tracks at Neil Finn's Round Head Studios.

Further tracks have been recorded and the debut album is almost complete and set for release in late 2019.
