The Bombastic Videos
Back in 2008, after we finished recording our first album at a friend’s house and before we left home for two years, we filmed one-take acoustic versions of all the songs on the record-each one in a different locale around Los Angeles. The L.A. River. The Colburn School of Music. Griffith Park. Noah’s car.
We didn’t really know what to expect, except that we wanted to show the songs in different contexts. In the process, we stripped down the music in some places, expanded it in others, and learned that Daren can drive a boat while holding down a beat. They became THE BOMBASTIC - a new series of one-take acoustic performances of all eleven songs from the upcoming record. We’ll be releasing one a week until the album comes out. There will be special musical guests. And one cat. Enjoy.
Here's This Week's Bombastic Video:
It’s been exactly two years since The Airborne Toxic Event rose like a shining totem for catchy, smart, compelling indie rock and landed a UK top twenty album still as an unsigned band. The debut has gone on to sell well over platinum and TATE’s unique blend of charisma, compelling pop anthems and hard graft - playing 30 shows in 30 nights - won them a legion of devotees, all of whom have been eagerly anticipating the band’s return.
And now in 2011 The Airborne Toxic Event are back with a brand new album of eleven songs, each one hook laden and a master class in tousled, widescreen rock. The band see these songs as chapters to a bigger book and whilst their eponymous debut literally started life as a novel, this, their second offering is a much more episodic affair. Whilst their first record was the book of break-ups, the themes of All At Once take a much more multi-faceted stance. As the album title suggests the arc of the record centres around the idea that life changes All At Once.
