Together, they vibrate with gritty guitar melodies, fast driving rhythms, and rich vocal harmonies, unleashing an earth-shaking sonic wave of sound. The band’s absorbing, intimate live shows and well-crafted recordings showcase members’ technical command of their instruments, effortless chemistry and talent for pouring pure heart into every performance.
Collectively, they have collaborated and played shows with such national acts as Sha Na Na, The Goo Goo Dolls, Foo Fighters, Alien Ant Farm, Ballyhoo!, Rusted Root, Iration, and The Movement. In summer of 2016, Big Atlantic provided VIP entertainment at First Niagara Pavilion alongside Disturbed, Breaking Benjamin, and Alter Bridge.
Big Atlantic released their debut album, MOTIVE, in 2012 produced by Rob Freeman. This earned them radio airplay within the tri-state area and their first taste of success.
Returning to work with Rob at The Pilot Studio, TEMPERED is their latest collection. Thirteen songs written about the evolution of the group that plays like the soundtrack to an epic motion picture. The larger-than-life songs tell stories about the musicians’ personal, emotional travels down life’s many roads and side streets finding the ability to face adversity, find triumphant strength and perseverance.
Currently, Big Atlantic is performing multiple dates, conferences, and festivals in support of their new album, TEMPERED, released on 3/24/17.
