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. 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 will also be performing with The Colorado Symphony later this 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.
