Born in the wake of a dying star, Aphelion find themselves in the cold distance... chasing The Sun.
Aphelion's debut album Chasing The Sun tells an epic sci-fi tale of war, corruption, heartbreak, loss, and the impending demise of the human race at its own hand; chronicling the missions of a declassified space militant team set in place by the U.S. government to protect The Earth from interstellar wars. As humanity sets a course for self-destruction, The crew of Aphelion set out on a musical journey to warn the world of the dangers we face. Aphelion revolves around the concept of rockstar meets superhero in a dystopian story of intergalactic proportions.
The crew of Aphelion consists of Chief Commander Steve Burke, Jr. (Vocals), Science Officer Sparrow Rivera (Guitar), Engineer Toast Hanson (Bass), and Medical Officer David Corvus (Drums). Drawing from a vast and various catalog of musical and theatrical influences, at its core Aphelion is a hard rock band with space-themed lyrics that tell the narrative of a world ravaged by a war that was advocated by the greatest threat to mankind we have ever known: ourselves. The space theme is symbiotically linked into the whole, which addresses socialism, the casualties of war, and the corruption of man, as well as exploring the emotional connections between each other.
Produced by Burn United Records, Chasing The Sun is scheduled for launch in 2017. Keep your eyes on the skies; the mission has only just begun.
