Emerging Artist Interview: Atlantic Atlantic


What was the first record/cassette/CD that you owned and how did it change you?

The first CD i owned was Metallica's "...And Justice For All". Got me from listening from Ritchie Valens "La Bamba" to heavy metal. Thank god for that! No disrespect Mr. Valens.

What would the name of your band's biography be?

I'd pick at what is left of Pete Doherty's brain. I'm sure it would be hilarious and awesome time .

Which musician would you be most comfortable dating your mom?

Dating my Mom?... Andrea Bocelli. Seems like a great guy. Foreign, handsome, loaded, and would obviously not love her just for her great looks!

Who are you musically influenced by that no one would ever guess by listening to your music?

No one would expect? Django Reinhardt. The greatest guitarist that ever lived.

If someone invested a million dollars into your band, how would you use the money?

If someone invested a million dollars into our band we would record 4-5 albums over the next few months ourselves (being we have that much material now ready to go but no $'s). Release them separately over a period of time while touring at our leisure while living off the rest of the money. We are cheap and easy to record so there would be a nice remainder that we could split up and chill mad hard with. Ah, our American dream.

If we had a cover band, the first 5 songs would go like this:

A. Metallica's "Four Horsemen"

B. Metallica's "Ride the Lightning"

C. Metallica's "Blackened"

D. Metallica's "Master of Puppets"

E. The Cardigans "Carnival"

Name the place you'd most like to play a show, anywhere in the world.

We would play Nippon Budokan ("The Budokan"). A venue in central Tokyo, Japan. Its a martial arts venue but many big bands have played there. Plus Japan is awesome and we would love to go there. Especially Nick. He realllly loves Japan.

What moment has made all of the hard work being a musician worth it?

Well, more like moments. Every time someone helps support our band, whether its a kind word, attending a show, or buying our music makes it all worth it. It's a hard business. Thank you.
