With so much success coming from this one release, we wanted to get together with Apollo's Army and ask them just how they did it, and what that process was like.
FITT: What is it like finally being able to have your music out in the world?
Apollo's Army: It is honestly such an overwhelming feeling. We have been together for so long, when we finally were able to get some music out, it lit a fire under us to keep making more. It's like an addiction. We have so much fun performing and creating music together, it only makes sense to share that energy with the rest of the world.
FITT: Do you guys have a theme or idea for your new music in the future?
Apollo's Army: Recently the entire feel of our music started to change. Our lead guitar player, Brennon, started playing on a seven string guitar last year, and it changed so much of our sound. Riffs just started flowing, and eventually full songs were getting churned out one after another. As far as a theme, we always try to stick to one message: positivity. Apollo's Army has always been about perseverance and sticking together, no matter what adversity may throw at us. We want to convey that through our music and give hope and inspiration to everyone who hears it.
FITT: How did the band come to fruition?
Apollo's Army: The group was initially formed for a high school battle of the bands event, but when the magic was realized, it was determined it needed to become something more. Nearly 13 years later, we are still playing music together.
FITT: Your single, Ghosts, has seen immense success. Did you expect this or did it come as a bit of a surprise?
Apollo's Army: Honestly, it's pretty shocking to us. It's up to almost 25k streams on Spotify, which we still have a hard time comprehending. We are so excited that people like this new sound we've developed, and hope that the fire will keep going.
FITT: With nearly 8,000 monthly listeners, it's safe to say you guys have started your journey to making it big. How does it feel to have music enjoyed by so many people?
Apollo's Army: I'm not really sure there's a word to describe the feeling it gives us. Our goal has never really been to "make it big". More than anything we just want to share our message with anybody who is willing to hear it. If it takes us to super stardom, that's cool. But if it touches somebody and helps change their point of view, that's the real success right there.
FITT: What exactly can we expect from Apollo's Army in the future?
Apollo's Army: In short, A LOT. We have been working pretty relentlessly in the studio to create new music. We're going to be releasing a lot of new music over the next several months, and it will contain entirely new sounds and styles. It's going to be extremely unexpected, and we can't wait to see how people react to it. We'll continue to perform regularly as well, which has been a lot of fun.
