MORE ABOUT FAVORITE ATOMIC HERO
What happened to the music? Where did the melody go? What happened to the ability to combine aggressive songwriting and bubble gum hooks? What dastardly villain is to blame? Unfortunately, there are far too many to list. Fortunately, there are saviours among us. They are four young men hailing from Boston, MA, collectively known as Favorite Atomic Hero. Playing catchy hook laden, powerful rock n' roll in the vein of the Foo Fighters, Jimmy Eat World and American Hi-Fi, Favorite Atomic Hero may just save the day.
Favorite Atomic Hero has remained one of Boston's best kept secrets until now. On December 10, 2002, Lonesome Recordings will release Who Will Save You Now? produced by Grammy nominated producer Ducky Carslisle (Bleu, Sheila Divine). This is the band's second full legnth CD. Their first, Timebomb, was an internet-only release on MP3.Com's in house label. It sold over 2000 copies worldwide and had countless downloads. The track "California," (which also appears on Who Will Save You Now?), ranked #1 on the MP3.com power-pop charts for over 20 weeks. The band has developed a rabid filling in New England and earned the respect of fans, critics and other bands they've shared the stage wtih, the likes of The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, the Kickovers, Superdrag, the Riddlin' Kids and Sum 41. Boston Phoenix writer Brett Milano was recently "blown away" by the band's songwriting and Boston 'zine The Noise says the band is "definitely on the runway to mega-success."
The band recently had a track released on a brand new Weezer trubute CD on Cleopatra Records. They also had a song featured on the MTV series Undressed. Furthermore, Favorite Atomic Hero has the honor of being included on the OBER/Shepard Fairey compilation The Giant Rock n' Roll Swindle along with the Bouncing Souls, The Hives International Noise Conspiracy and more.
