ABOUT THE SHOW
Peter Klett joined Candlebox from its inception in 1990. Candlebox was the first successful act on Madonna’s Maverick Records, which went on to sign Alanis Morissette, Deftones and The Prodigy. They found immediate success with the release of their self-titled debut album in July 1993. It featured some of the band’s biggest hit singles, including “Far Behind” and “You”, and was certified platinum by the RIAA four times. Their next two albums, Lucy and Happy Pills, also sold well. After troubles with Maverick, Candlebox went on indefinite hiatus in 1999 after an alleged attempt to be freed from their contract. The band reunited in 2006, and two years later, they released their fourth album Into the Sun as well as a live CD/DVD Alive In Seattle. Klett’s final album with the band was the release of Love Stories and Other Musings on April 23rd, 2012.
The band has toured or played selected shows with such bands as Living Colour, The Flaming Lips, Our Lady Peace, Rush, Henry Rollins, Aerosmith, Godsmack, Metallica, Radiohead, The Offspring, Sponge, Seaweed, Hinder and Suicidal Tendencies. They were also a featured band on the main-stage at Woodstock ’94 and made repeat live performances on Late Show with David Letterman.
In November of 2009, Terry McDermott headed to Seattle to Klett’s studio and started recording their new material, which eventually became Lotus Crush's debut album. After recording the ﬁrst couple of songs with just acoustic guitar and vocals, the two of them realized they had something special. The next logical step was to complete the lineup with musicians that shared the same drive and passion for the new music.
Apollo Under Fire is a band that strives to reach the soul. In a day and age where we seem content to focus our attention outward, AUF is using music to look inward. Over the last 20+ years, they have each soul searched their way through the music industry song by song, with a wide range of success, all the while learning more about themselves and growing closer to God. Two of those paths came together in 2013 when Donald Carpenter (SubmerseD, Eye Empire) met Peter Klett (Candlebox, Lotus Crush) at a Benefit Concert they were both performing at in Orlando, FL for the Johnny Damon Foundation. The two immediately connected and had sparked what would become Apollo Under Fire. In early 2014, the stars aligned again. DC and Peter were both coming off the road and had been presented with the opportunity to get in the studio and start writing.
