The Absolutepunk "Bands of the Future" Tour with Mercy Mercedes, Go Crash Audio and Lannen Fall is...
Let's be honest, sometimes you just want to dance. Last February the four members of Atavan stopped at a Wal-Mart on the way to record their debut E.P, and bought one of those 90's dance mix CD's. That CD served its purpose as the sugar on top of their energetic album, "...With The World Asleep." Atavan brings together provocative lyrics and sexy vocals, with rock driven dance music and in your face drums. Just when you think you've heard the best part, they give you one better.
Recorded at Nada Recording Studios with producer John Naclerio (The Audition, Just Surrender, My Chemical Romance...) "...With The World Asleep" has sold over 1500 albums, and spent its first few months on SmartPunk.com's top 100 list. This past summer Josh, Christian, Teddy, Jim, and Joe took their adventure on their first tour, then continued on to join the warped tour for 4 weeks, quickly gaining loyal friends and die hard fans in every city along the way.
In late August, at just a year old, Atavan joined the AbsolutePunk.net Bands of the Future Tour for a few dates, starting in their hometown of Pontiac, MI, and ending in Omaha, NE. This October these fabulous five set out on their 3rd tour covering the Midwest and east coast for 2 months. Just one listen to this band, and you'll find yourselves just as eager to see them live and they are to shake your hands and hang out! There's no doubt these guys are destined for an amazing and promising future.
