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

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.
