Hard-rock upstart band APACHE STONE will make a sustained multi-media splash over the course of the next several months, with a self-titled debut album completed, and a major continuing part in RESCUE ME, one of television’s most-admired series.
The founder, lead singer and chief songwriter of APACHE STONE is the young actor MICHAEL LOMBARDI, introduced to the public in 2004 as Mike Silletti, the “probie” — newly-hired probational rookie — in the firehouse of FX’s multiple Emmy-nominated dramedy RESCUE ME. In the new season of the show, just underway, APACHE STONE will be seen and heard through the year: Each of the band members have speaking roles in a plot arc tracing the formation of the group by the now-seasoned fireman Silletti, starting in the fifth episode. The band will perform two songs onstage in the last third of the show’s 22-episode current run.
These and two other album advance tracks are posted currently on the band’s MySpace.com home page. Lombardi and the band members are also featured in video interviews about APACHE STONE’s real-life history and its involvement with the series at
