(February 1, 2011- New York, NY) With loyal fanbase followings on every continent around the world, Island Records group the Airborne Toxic Eventis set to release its first new single in nearly two years - as "Changing" goes to Alternative radio on January 31st and is available at all digital partners today! Produced by Dave Sardy (credits: Oasis, Band of Horses, the Ting Tings, Twisted Wheel), "Changing" is the first single pick from the Airborne Toxic Event's long-awaited new album, ALL AT ONCE, in stores April 26th.
In advance of the album release, the Airborne Toxic Event will play an unprecedented trio of European residencies in February. Throughout the month, they will perform every Monday at Paradiso in Amsterdam, every Tuesday at White Trash in Berlin, and every Friday at a different venue in Paris (while also touring extensively throughout the three countries and the UK during the month).
Since its release in 2008, The Airborne Toxic Event, the band's self-titled debut album has sold over 200,000 copies in the U.S., and over 300,000 copies internationally. Named "Debut Album of the Year" by the Boston Herald, the record spent 53 weeks on the BillboardHeatseekers chart, with eight of those weeks logged at #1. The album's breakthrough single "Sometime Around Midnight" rose to #4 on the BillboardModern Rock chart, and was named Alternative Song Of The Year at iTunes. The next single, "Wishing Well," broke the Top 20 at Alternative radio. The songs received major airplay internationally on BBC Radio 1 in the UK, Australia, France, Germany, Austria, Canada, Japan, Switzerland, and South East Asia.
The Airborne Toxic Event - Mikel Jollett(vocals, guitar, keyboards), Steven Chen(guitar, keyboards), Anna Bulbrook(viola, keyboards, tambourine, backing vocals), Noah Harmon (bass, backing vocals), and Daren Taylor (drums) - have earned their reputation as an aggressive touring band, known for playing more than 350 dates in support of their debut album release, supporting Kings of Leon, Franz Ferdinand, the Ting Tings, and many others.
The Airborne Toxic Event is certainly no stranger to grand musical gestures like the European residency. They were the only modern music artists to perform at the esteemed Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles during its 2009 fall season. The result was the concert-documentary film All I Ever Wanted, released September 2010, and chosen as an official selection to the Raindance Film Festival. The band also performed with The Colorado Symphony last month. Full-scale U.S. and European tours will follow this spring, with dates to be announced February 15th.
The Airborne Toxic Event is also familiar to television viewers, having debuted on NBC'sLast Call with Carson Daly, and appeared on CBS's The Late Show with David Letterman, NBC'sThe Tonight Showwith Jay Leno, ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live, and the old NBC Late Night with Conan O'Brien. They headlined a one-hour concert special on DirecTV. VH1 designated them a "You Oughta Know" artist, later peaked at #4 on VH1's Top 20 countdown. They have also received A-list rotation on MTV2.
