1. NEW SINGLE: #1 HITS from the '70s

We just released our second single of 2024. It spoofs a pair of #1 hits from the '70s that were remakes of Top 10 hits from the '60s.

http://apologetix.com/store/store.php#LookedontheCeiling

Here's what's on it:

Looked on the Ceiling - Hooked on a Feeling - Blue Swede
You'll Succeed - You're Sixteen - Ringo Starr

There are now 233 singles/EPs (472 songs) in our "downloads for a donation" series, including our previous single, "Bartimaeus Eyes" and "They Blindly Speak of Science," featuring parodies of Kim Carnes and Thomas Dolby.

To get multiple downloads with one donation, go to http://apologetix.com/news/news-details.php?news_id=3564


2. OUR BIGGEST (and ONLY) CONCERT in 7 YEARS

It's official: ApologetiX is booked to play what will be our first concert in almost seven years. Our most-recent show was on October 24, 2017. We've been comfortable operating as a studio-only band since then and have been saying all along that it would take something really big to get us back up on stage. Well, this is it!

We're honored to be selected as the closing act for the third annual Immortal Fest in Versailles OH on Labor Day Weekend this year. ApologetiX will play Sunday night, September 1, and most of our fans will still have Monday off for the holiday.

Other artists scheduled to play that weekend include: Bride, The Daniel Band, Fear Not, Ironwrath, Les Carlsen of Bloodgood, Neon Cross, Sacred Warrior, Saint, Shout, Trytan, Whitecross, and Worldview. The emcee will be the legendary Pastor Bob Beeman of Sanctuary International.

If we were going to return to the stage, we always felt the ideal spot would be a centralized location in the Midwest that would enable as many of our fans as possible to attend from north, south, east, and west. Versailles OH fits the bill. Here are some nearby cities and how far away they are from Versailles:

Dayton OH (45 miles), Muncie IN (50 miles), Cincinnati OH (95 miles), Columbus OH (100 miles), Indianapolis IN (110 miles), Toledo OH (130 miles), Ann Arbor MI (175 miles), Lexington KY (175 miles), Detroit MI (190 miles), Louisville KY (195 miles), Cleveland OH (225 miles), Chicago IL (250 miles), Pittsburgh PA (285 miles), Saint Louis MO (350 miles), and Nashville TN (365 miles).

Immortal Fest II

3. NEW USBs in STOCK

We recently received a new batch of USBs.

Emblazoned with the band's logo, our ApX USB thumb drives contain the digital versions of all 72 of our CDs, plus any singles, EPs, or rarities that aren't on CD, up to and including our latest single. We recently upgraded the storage capacity from 8 GB to 16 GB to accommodate our ever-expanding library of music.

They still look exactly the same, and they're not any bigger on the outside; it's what's inside that counts. Like our previous USBs, they're write-enabled, so you can add more music to them if and when you get future ApX downloads.

Although we've doubled the capacity, the deal is the same; they're still available for a donation of $150 or more. If you've donated for our complete library before, they're still available for a donation of $50 or more.

http://apologetix.com/store/store.php#USB


4. OVER 1600 TRACKS for $100

We're giving our complete library on download to everyone who donates $100 this week.

That's 1646 tracks, including various versions (studio, live, rarity, album, single, EP, revised, remastered, etc.), plus side projects ... even our latest single, "Looked on the Ceiling" and "You'll Succeed," featuring parodies of Blue Swede and Ringo Starr, plus our latest CD, Play It Again, Samson.

Standard CDs 1993-2021 (907 tracks)
Remastered Classics CDs (219 tracks)
Singles, EPs, Rarities, Side Projects (520 tracks)

Just make your donation at http://www.apologetix.com/store/store-donate.php

After we receive your donation, we'll send you an email with links for all the downloads.
