Apollo Run featured in LAist.com + Future Sounds!
Apollo Run has some great features in LAist.com & Future Sounds. Check them out!
A sample from the LAist interview:
Which Apollo Run member would you want to be stranded on a deserted island with?
John: Jeff, because he could build a boat to get off the island. He is known among the band as “Wildcard” because of his many random skills—motorcycle stuntman, aspiring cookbook author, and martial arts expert, among thousands of others.
Jeff: Graham, because if I had to eat him, I would survive much longer than with John.
Graham: John, because Jeff wants to eat me.

A sample from Future sounds:
Led by the genre-hopping intensity of multi-instrumentalist (guitar, piano and trumpet) John McGrew, the band’s sound falls somewhere between a stripped down, recession-era form of Queen or Muse, (sans all the cosmic (and keyboard-y) spiritual references) or even Beirut, with McGrew and (professionally-trained) bassist Jeff Kerestes at the helm dripping with the swagger of stars from the arena rock days, as drummer Graham Fisk rolled right along as every song proved an encore-worthy thrill with jumping, screaming, swaying, instrument hugging, table-dancing and a set-closing a cappella stomp-along. A sweaty, saloon-rocking gospel jam along if I’ve ever seen it. – Matt Draper
