LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON, NBC
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.
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 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.
