This Aussie band has certainly mad a name for themselves this year in the US!  I caught their show a few times, and it was nothing short from awesome!  Legend!  Atlas Genius has been touring the U.S. non-stop for the past four months with groups like Silversun Pickups, Wolf Gang and Animal Kingdom and will wrap up their 2012 run with a sold-out headlining show at Los Angeles' Troubadour on December 11. 

"Trojans" is the first single from the band's debut album, When It Was Now, which will be released on February 19, 2013 via Warner Bros. Records.  A pre-order for When It Was Now goes live this week at both iTunes and Amazon.  Atlas Genius wrote, recorded and produced When It Was Now themselves at a studio they built in their hometown of Adelaide, Australia.  Once their studio was built, the first song that Atlas Genius finished was "Trojans."  After spending weeks tweaking it, they put "Trojans" on SoundCloud, Spotify, iTunes and Australia's Triple J Unearthed website.

Atlas Genius will kick off a two-month US tour with Imagine Dragons on February 8 at The Marquee in Tempe, AZ. The run includes a show at New York City's Roseland Ballroom (February 23), a performance at the House of Blues in Chicago (March 4) and a night at the Wiltern in Los Angeles (March 20).  Atlas Genius will also play two shows at SXSW in Austin (March 13 & 14).
