Aphelion's debut album CHASING THE SUN is available on all digital distributors.

Aphelion's debut single "I've Lost the Moon" reached worldwide rotation on rock radio, including over 50 stations in the U.S.

BIOGRAPHY:
Aphelion revolves around the concept of rockstar meets superhero in a Dystopian story of intergalactic proportions. 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 war that was advocated by the greatest threat mankind has ever known: ourselves. The space theme is symbiotically linked into the whole, which addresses tyranny, the casualties of war, and the corruption of man; as well as exploring the emotional connection between each other.

Conceptually, their debut album, Chasing the Sun, follows the journey of the crew's commander and his quest to escape a world of corruption-- only to be corrupted by something else. Could it be that corruption lives in the heart of all men?
