Apulanta is a Finnish rock band, founded in 1991 when its members were in their mid-teens.

In September 2009, Apulanta members established an independent label, Päijät-Hämeen Sorto ja Riisto ("Päijänne Tavastian Oppression and Exploitation").[1] Since its beginnings, the label has so far managed to get one artist, pop singer Kaija Koo in the summer of 2010.[2] In February 2011, they revealed that they had a new prospective artist in the label, though not disclosing their name.[3]

The name of the band means literally help manure, or fertilizer, which they have since come to regret.
