Atoll Interview

1. Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording of the new album?



We added a 3rd guitarist (Spencer Ferguson) as well as been focused on planning out our march tour and getting our third album ready for the studio



2. You have a new album coming out in November, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?



The new album has a more focused and well-rounded sound that incorporates all of our influences, the new album differs from our previous material in many ways, we've added a new vocalist in Wade Taylor who is an absolute monster behind the microphone, we have fine-tuned the tones of each instrument on the recording. We kept the tracking, edits and mixing all in house. Making it much easier to shape it the way we wanted it.



3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?



Most of the lyrical content that we have is based on human extinction or crazy sci-fi Concepts that we thought of ourselves as well as a little bit of humor peppered in there.



4. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Atoll'?



The meaning and inspiration for the name atoll comes from some of the hydrogen bomb testing they did over Bikini Atoll creating mutated monsters and disgusting beasts. We go over a lot of these Concepts in our song Bikini Atoll Fallout Frenzy.



5. What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?



The two best shows that we played so far have definitely been Las Vegas deathfest and Los Angeles extermination Fest. Both promoters treated us very professionally and we got to meet a ton of awesome bands. In describing our stage performance, one could possibly use the adjectives chaotic energetic and insanely Savage. We like to put on the best show we can for our fans and for the people who come to see us they deserve the best show possible and we want to deliver that.



6. Do you have any touring or show plans once the new album is released?



We're playing December 9th in Long Beach California and January 13th in Albuquerque New Mexico. We are currently planning a West Coast tour in the spring, a one-off show in Las Vegas with some homies and booking a few festivals happening in the summer
