Luke Appleton began his professional music career at the very young age of 14, where his first band ‘Fury UK’ were performing at Bloodstock Open Air. This was just the beginning for the band, as this led on to many touring opportunities supporting the likes of Blaze Bayley, Michael Schenker, Y&T, Saxon and Iced Earth.
Shortly after the tour opening for Iced Earth, Luke was then offered the position as a bassist of Iced Earth in 2012. Over the years Luke has been touring all over the world and has recorded on Iced Earth’s DVD ‘Live In Ancient Kourion’ and their latest two albums ‘Plagues of Babylon’ and ‘Incorruptible’.
Luke has shared the stage with many acts such as Volbeat, Sabaton, Hansi Kursch of Blind Guardian, Matt Barlow and many more.
In between the Iced Earth touring schedule, Luke keeps himself busy with his own band ‘Absolva’ shared by his brother Chris Appleton. Luke also has an acoustic solo project and joins the Blaze Bayley band when required from time to time.
