The Airborne Toxic Event (United States of America)

This week  featuring The United States of America


The Airborne Toxic Event are a five piece band from Los Angeles, led by the vocals of Mike Jollett.  Jollet was originally a fiction writer and essayist before forming TATE.  Their debut self titled album was released in 2008.  The song “Sometime around midnight” off of this album was named iTunes #1 alternative song of the year.  It is a stone classic!  The bands second album “All at once” released to mixed reviews in 2011.  I am surprised that this band has not received more acclaim, but they have a loyal fan base on every continent of the world.  With Mike Jollets intense and gripping vocals and lyrics The Airborne Toxic Event does a great job of staying away from the cliche’ driven rock.
