We're pretty good at the disappearing act. It's because, you know, we have other offical and galaxy-spanning duties to attend to in addition to our patent-pending sonic mayhem.

In any case, there's a show in Charlottesville, VA this Saturday. We will have ten (10) Advance Copies of the new CD, Time For Tomorrow (the "For" is capitalized because every one of our words is important). They look almost exactly like the regular copies of the CD, except that instead of a real bar code they have a fake bar code that also says "Advance CD". Rock.

Hold on to your space junk, this is the biggie! Atomic Box are proud to announce their CD release party on Monday, May 30th, at Alchemy, for the new record Time for Tomorrow. We're also performing that night, along with our good friends, Polaris.

The shows start at about 10:30 p.m. Alchemy is located at CB's Gallery, 313 Bowery, New York, NY.

For further information, check out the band's web site, atomicbox.net.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

Mysterious

Some daring (or stupid) fool -- babakganoosh -- posted supposed pictures of the recent Atomic Box show. I neither confirm nor deny the veracity of these photographs. However, they certainly capture some event, and what the heck, the women are hot. Feel free to decide for yourself.

I (finally) updated the website with more information about the upcoming show. Also corrected the lineup on the gigs page-- shame on me for previously posting prematurely. So check this out: seven (7) bands for ten (10) dollars. That's like paying only four (4) bucks ($) for us, and then a buck a band for the rest! SCORE!

We live in dire times. Dark forces have conspired to rot the brains of our youth. Fifty percent of polled high school students can't name the three branches of government. One third of polled students think that the press should run all their stories past the government before going to print. Linkin Park still dominates the hard rock music charts with over 14 million records sold -- and no end in sight!

We must end the madness!

Which is why Atomic Box have two gigs planned, and a record that's finally nearing completion. Check it, yo:

GIGS

ALBUM
I know. I keep saying we're almost done. Well, this time I mean it. We will have copies of the new record available at the show on April 22. The songs are 100% written. They're 100% recorded. They're 95% mixed. Agent Greene is creating the cover and interior art even as we speak!

In the meantime, here's some factoids to keep ya'll salivating:
• Title: Time for Tomorrow
• # Tracks: 5 studio, 2 live, assorded weirdness. Over 30 minutes of music.
• FAQ:
IS THERE GUITAR THIS TIME?
Hell yeah.
ARE THERE DANCEY SONGS?
Hell yeah.
IS IT TRUE THIS IS A CONCEPT RECORD?
...Hell yeah!
DOES THIS MEAN IT'S PRETENTIOUS AND OVERBLOWN?
Nope, it means that Atomic Box had an idea that somehow managed to appear throughout the recording. The songs, however, exist independently of the concept. So you can pretend it's not there if it makes you feel more comfortable.
WHAT ELSE IS SPECIAL ABOUT THIS RECORD?
We're limiting the first pressing to only 100 copies. These will be numbered and authorized by a duly selected member of the Atomic Resonance Commission.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR ME?
It means that one day, these copies will be worth more on eBay.
IS DR. ATOMIC STILL TAKING APPLICATIONS FOR HIS "LAB ASSISTANT"?
Of course. Applicants must have legs up to "here," a neck line that plunges down to "there," and an ability to handle both disintegration and atomic death rays. Swooning a plus, but not in the middle of a fire fight.

As always, you can find more information by checking:

I threw a hack CSS fix on the A.Box site to fix the spacing problem in the navigation bar when using Firefox. I'm avoiding a full-site CSS recode because we're still getting hits with Netscape 4.x, which can't really handle CSS positioning. Maybe if I do a redesign when he new album comes out, I'll just say "Screw that bogus antiquated tech" and do it CSS-style anyway.

Gabba gabba wha? In any case, if you have any problems viewing the Atomic Box site, leave a comment (or drop me an email).

#1.) I'm updating the horribly sloppy code to the A.Box website, but it's tough making things look good and still be backwards compatible. To that end:

What browser are you using? (Version and operating system too, please.)

Leave a comment-- the feedback is much appreciated.


#2.) Patches. Hopefully the Reverend Doctor will bring them to Contempt. I, alas, will not be there, as my presence is required in the so-called city of brotherly love. For any patch-desiring out-of-towner(s), email us your mailing address. Try not to include words like "Valium" or "EnLarGe!!!" in the subject line.
