"As This Is Futuristic (2006)"

"Drawling over chugging guitars, these Kentuckians sound totally garaged-out and haggard, but still boyishly in love with the power of rock." - SPIN Magazine

"guitar-based power pop that�s jangly, fuzzy and full of infectious energy." - The Onion

"the Apparitions manage to blend modern rock and �60s psychedelic into one happy, unpredictable mix.
" - Performing Songwriter

"an apocalyptic science fiction collection. The lush, densely packed riffs and harmonies are sunny on the surface, but the songs have a sinister bite underneath--imagine the Flaming Lips turned dystopian and mean." - Chicago Reader

"The Apparitions are proof that great post punk isn�t only found in the five boroughs or the UK." - Sonic Slang - various CD review quotes...

We are The Apparitions.
We are the chariot race in Ben-Hur.
We are 3 guitars, 1 bass, and 4 drums.
And cymbals. And singing. Lots of singing.
We play spacey golden pop rock.
We play spacey golden pop rock loud.
We are The Apparitions.

We have hooks. We have thorns.
Jittery hooks and thorns.
We are wiry tension and sugary melodies.
We are dystopian. But we believe.
We believe in song.
We are The Apparitions.

We listen.
We hear things.
We have been heard. So says CMJ (#46).
We tour. We have toured this great nation.
And then some.
We share stages. Stages with bands: The Features, Califone, The Standard, Catfish Haven, Margot & The Nuclear So & So’s, The Lonely Feathers. Others.

We are Lexington, Kentucky.
We are Washington, DC.
We have many homes.
We are The Apparitions.

We have a new record. As This Is Futuristic.
On Machine Records. Chicago.
We believe in records. We believe in this record.
We sell this record. Live and in stores. In stores. Everywhere.

We are on tour. Now. On tour now.
We are available for booking. Book us.
Yes. Please. Do.
We are The Apparitions.
