After a few years of touring and familiarizing themselves with fans from all over the world The Airborne Toxic Event have released their second album entitled All At Once. With this new album the band investigates more blending of sounds of classical violins and electronic guitar melodies similar to that found in their debut album Airborne Toxic Event in 2009. The major differences found between the first and second album is the lyrical content about the pleasantry of relationships rather than dwell on the failures and heartache relationships can bring.
The first single available off the new album called “Changing” talks about making changes in ones’ life to improve their chances at healthy relationships. The first track on the album called “All At Once” reflects on hope having much to do with how we survive each day and eventually find our place in the world. The entire album, written during the latter half of 2009 and most of 2010, acts as dedication to the luck and inspiration that has followed this band’s success and prosperity since their start in 2006.
Devoted fans shouldn’t be discouraged to check out this new album considering most of the songs leave an air of content and hold similar musical tendancies from the first album. One difference adding a new dynamic to this album includes acoustic solos by lead vocals Mikel Jollett. New listeners will find this album similar to bands like Artic Monkeys, Band of Skulls, The Killers, and The Bravery.
The Airborne Toxic Event has released and perform frequently in the last three years. In 2010, the band released “Neda” in honor of the young Iranian woman who was killed during the protests of the disputed 2009 presidential election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Iran. Band collaborated efforts with Amesity International to produce a website entitled Nedaspeaks.org, to raise awareness about Agha-Soltan’s death and the human rights struggle in Iran. July 2010 they participated in a documentary film entitled All I Ever Wanted: Live From Walt Disney Concert Hall given behind-the-scenes narrative chronicling the band’s extensive preparations for the show.
The band is currently on tour in North America starting in New York and ending in California towards the end of June. For more information check out The Airborne Toxic Event website.
