THE ATLAS MOTH has been touring consistently since the release of A Glorified Piece of Blue Sky last fall. The five-piece was a “buzz band” at the South-By-Southwest Festival earlier this year where they made six showcase appearances. Brooklyn Vegan notes, “the juxtaposition of vocalist/guitarist Stavros’s high and low pitched screams against David’s soaring and spot-on clean vocals sounds great against the wall of slight synths and crunchy guitars. I already can’t wait to see them again.” Noisecreeep adds, “their feedback-drenched space jams spiral off into rapturous psychedelia as often as they dredge up the dirtiest dixie-sludge. This is a band to watch, no doubt about it.”

Formed in early 2007, THE ATLAS MOTH has carefully perfected their bone-shaking heaviness. An awesome metal hybrid, the quintet unites sludge, doom, psychedelia and more into a musical adventure few bands can deliver. “This is heavy music for heavy thinkers,” says Stavros. A Glorified Piece of Blue Sky is the band’s full length debut. It follows 2008’s highly regarded EP, Pray for Tide. Punknews says, THE ATLAS MOTH “gives me shivers… a band to watch.” Spinner.com notes, “THE ATLAS MOTH’s combination of bluesy, psychedelia, and metal makes for a pretty awesomely grim sonic blend.” The band has performed alongside Pentagram, Saviours, Intronaut, Wolves in the Throne Room, Coalesce, and Harvey Milk, among others.
