Atlas Genius will celebrate the February 19th release of its debut album, When It Was Now (Warner Bros. Records), with an appearance on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” The band will perform the album’s first single, “Trojans,” which has sold more than 200,000 and ranks in the Top 5 at Modern Rock radio and Top 10 at the Triple A format.

 

Fans can listen to “If So,” the new single from When It Was Now, at http://soundcloud.com/atlas-genius. “On their new track “If So,” Atlas Genius groove with dream-like guitar licks, shifty hi-hats and a meaty bass backbone,” said Rolling Stone

 

The band will kick off a sold-out tour with Imagine Dragons this Friday, February 8th, at The Marquee in Tempe, AZ. On February 20th, Atlas Genius will play a record release show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY and appear at SXSW on March 13th (KCRW’s Official SXSW nighttime showcase) and 14th.  Tickets just went on sale for Atlas Genius’ first North American headline tour, which launches on April 25th at Antone’s in Austin, TX. See below for itinerary. Additional dates will be announced soon. 

 

“The Australian brothers deliver dance rock with smart melodic swagger,” said Entertainment Weekly, naming Atlas Genius as one of “15 New Stars We Love.” The band was also tipped as one to watch in 2013 by NYLON and Neon Gold.

 

Atlas Genius’ Keith and Michael Jeffery wrote, recorded and produced When It Was Now at a studio they built in their hometown of Adelaide, Australia. The album captures Atlas Genius’s singular combination of sophisticated musicality and warm, wistful spirit. Infused with a classic sensibility, each of the songs would fit seamlessly if somehow slipped into a long-treasured mixtape. Fans can pre-order Atlas Genius’ When It Was Now at:
