Atlas Will Atone deliver their début [proper] six track EP on 27th Feb, via the usual Bandcamp and iTunes outlets as well as a hundred physical copies on CD for you to hold, play and own.
Lead track Blind Ambition has it all, gusto, angst, melody, muscle and just the right length. I state the length as bands of this genre more often than not try and write concept songs when they could produce two or three pretty neat individual ones! Thankfully Atlas Will Atone keep ’em short(ish) and (bitter)sweet.

There’s blanks in my life… How did we get to the camp site last night? What time did we leave? What did we do after seeing Islet? What is my mother’s maiden name? When will I, will I be famous?
To help fill in the blanks on this cryptic crossword called post-alcohol life, Tim Griff and myself elected to take an hour’s contemplation with our livers and walk into town for a Greasy Spoon breakfast because – This is how we rock… This is how we roll…

I really should go out in Bangor more often, treated to homemade curries in advance, chauffered to venues, thoroughly entertained, in good company, then taxied back, with more curry and a bed for the night! The opportunity is definitely there as there is a steady supply of gigs at The Skerries for a while now care of North Wales Metal Promotions. It may be pretty small but that keeps it cosy and the sounds loud, and tonight there is a busier turnout than I’ve seen previously there too.

Like I said about Rob Talbot, the promoter at Preston, the same can be said for James Rozzy in Holyhead. These people are essential to a scene or the scene. Without them there’s no hub. And although sometimes venues are shortlived, people like James will seek out new halls for new civilisations. Bands, punters, venues and scenes come and go, but some promoters live forever, just take a look at Steve Rastin in Rhyl, he’s 97 and still putting on gigs!
