CMJ Premieres Atlantic Thrills – “Day at the Beach” Video

Photo From CMJ

Atlantic Thrills are making the CMJ headlines today with a new music video for “Day at the Beach,” a song that appeared on the band’s 7″ last Summer on Almost Ready Records, the same label that is releasing their debut self-titled LP (also featuring ‘Beach’) on February 4th. Ya y’all know the scoop. For now, sit back and watch this hilarious, bubblegummy, acid trippy video at the link below.

The article is written by a guy who knows his shit: Eric Davidson, front man for classic garage punk outfit New Bomb Turks and author of We Never Learn: The Gunk Punk Undergut, a chronicle of 1980s/1990s underground garage punk and a personal favorite of mine. Glad to hear Eric is digging the Thrillz.

On Wednesday, January 22 the dudes are playing at The Middle East Upstairs for The Televibes’ Tape Release Show along with Vundabar and The Guru. FB page here:

Catch Atlantic Thrills on a huge ass tour in the coming months…
