Introducing The Airborne Toxic Event (Mercury Recs)

With one self titled album, The Airborne Toxic Event presented themselves as an earnest sounding band with some great musicianship.  They frequently perform with orchestras and are slated to release a live DVD from the Walt Disney Concert Hall (Sept 7 US release).  Their first album was heralded by U2’s bassist Adam Clayton as a record he would be listening to for the rest of the year.  Rolling Stone named the band one of the “Top 25 bands on MySpace” and several other publications and radio stations (e.g. NPR) have given very positive responses.  The band has been seen live on Letterman, Conan OBrien, Leno, Kimmel, and Carson Daily.
