Hollywood Apocalypse The Band of The Future
Hollywood Apocalypse is a band that is quickly making a name for themselves in the music industry. Based in Los Angeles, the band is known for their unique blend of 1980s Hollywood Sunset Strip sound and punk rock. At the helm of the band is Ivan Hruska, who has a background that is just as diverse as the music they create. Hruska was born in Croatia and raised in Toronto, Canada, before spending some time in Germany. It was during this time that they were exposed to a wide range of musical influences, including Guns N’ Roses, Nirvana, Aerosmith, and BlindMelon, as well as California punk rock bands like Green Day, Offspring, and Nofx.
But Hruska believes that it was heartbreak and the pain of the world that truly inspired them to create music. In their opinion, nothing triggers that inspirational flow quite like heartbreak or something terrible happening. This belief is reflected in the lyrics of their music, which often touches on emotional subjects like love, LGBTQ issues, and mental health.
Hollywood Apocalypse’s debut album, “53 Minutes of Fame,” was released in June 2022 and features a mix of upbeat and introspective tracks. Some of the most popular songs on the album include “Rain in La,” “Dreaming of You,” “They,” “Prayer Full of Explosives,” “Green Tea,” and “Thriving Organically.” In addition to the album, the band has also released two single projects, “Kitty Pow Pow” and “They,” which focus on the little joys of life and LGBTQ issues, respectively.
Hruska has also made a name for themselves in the filmmaking industry, producing the films “Blind” (2019), “Pretty Boy” (2021), and “Apnea” (2022). Their passion for creating art extends beyond music and into other mediums, making them a truly multifaceted artist.
Hollywood Apocalypse is currently signed with Dirty Dusty Records and has over 10,000 monthly listeners on Spotify. Their music has resonated with fans all over the world, with tracks like “Dreaming of You” being streamed over 100,000 times. It’s clear that Hollywood Apocalypse is a band on the rise, with a bright future ahead of them.
Despite their success, Hruska remains down to earth and grateful for the opportunity to create and share their art with the world. They are always looking for new ways to push the boundaries and try something different, making them a truly exciting and innovative band to watch. As they continue to grow and evolve, it will be interesting to see what Hollywood Apocalypse has in store for the future.
