home Apollo Run, New Cassettes

What:
Supporting Acts: The New Imperialism, The Chaotic Goods Apollo Run "The group merits far more widespread attention than it's received thus far" says NPR's Song of the Day about Brooklyn's three piece indie group Apollo Run. With the release of Here Be Dragons Volume 1 in October 2010, their first EP in a series of three, these newcomers are prepared to prove them right, with an album boasting six songs that are both viscerally moving and musically varied. John McGrew, Graham Fisk, and Jeff Kerestes bring a musical aptitude and inherent fluency in music theory to every note, making for fantastic pop songs that are both smart and moving. The proof is in the pudding: an Apollo Run live show means a packed venue with a mixed crowd with one common denominator- everyone is frankly addicted to the band's catchy yet complex songs, and they're there to get their fix by singing along. New Cassettes New Cassettes is a five-piece band from Northampton, England who have been leaving audiences wanting more since 2005. The band released their debut single, You Won't Stop, on Fantastic Plastic with copies selling out within the first month and landing #11 on the indie charts in England. They have gained critical acclaim from plays on Radio 1, BBC6 and XFM, and have been a MySpace featured artist as well as the Radio 1 front-page feature. Recently the band toured in support of The Strokes, played the Glastonbury Music Festival, was featured on the The Inbetweeners soundtrack and had a headlining tour in Japan. The New Cassettes finished the final mixing of their second album, Winterhead, with Grammy Award-winning songwriter and producer Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne and sound engineer Geoff Sanoff. While in the States working on the album the band took a break from the studio to do a special ASCAP-hosted showcase for TV & Film music supervisors at the Gibson Showroom in Los Angeles. MTV became big fans of the New Cassettes after their short stop in Los Angeles and asked them to join Hype Music, the new partnership between MTV and Extreme Music. Recently New Cassettes returned to the US to perform at the 2011 SXSW Festival in Austin, TX, where they tore up the MTV Garage stage as well as other select shows. From this the band has received very positive critical blog reviews, Radio (KWSS 1067). The band will returns to the US, for a short tour of LA and New York, including a show and interview on the "Lillywhite Sessions" by Steve Lillywhite @ East Village Radio!!
