Living somwhere between The Beatles, Matt Pond PA, and Dan Wilson, Falling From The Sky is an exciting first milestone for Atomic Flea's latest incarnation.

New web site, new EP!

Posted 8/20/2009

Welcome to our new site! It's been an exciting year, and Flea continues to venture into new musical territory. For the first time in band history, we are (mostly) all acoustic. I say mostly as Mike still runs his acoustic through an impressive array of effects pedals, creating an even more interesting array of cool sounds! We now have a full-time violin player, and Dawn also brings a beautiful singing voice to the mix (as well as some serious tambourine skills.) Eric and John, well we're keepin' on keepin' on, John rocking out a seriously cool acoustic bass guitar, and I am having endless fun working on new material for this latest incarnation of Atomic Flea.

The new EP Falling From the Sky is currently in mixdown and will be available for purchase this Fall! Four preview tracks are available on our music player in the bar below.
