New York City, New York

An alternative rock band based out of the New York City area, Atomic Violet formed in early 2004. Joe and Matt took up guitar in high school. Jamming in Joe's parents' house in the early nineties, they cultivated a sound rich in melody and emotion. The band has spent the last year writing and recording their debut CD 'Rock Widow' at Monster Island Studios in NYC with producer Mike Caffrey. The CD was released October 8th 2005.

Atomic Violet continues to tour in the NYC area building up a dedicated fanbase.

***FROM SMOTHER MAGAZINE November 2005***..........'Jersey City rock-n-roll kids Atomic Violet are set to take the Garden State and beyond by storm with their enigmatic self-released debut album. Despite their rather young age (they formed only a year ago), they boast a mature sound. Often when you think they are going to kick it in high gear, they hold off. The result is an interesting compilation of crafty songwriting and clever rockin.............Congratulations guys and gals you have my full attention.
