"Poetry you can dance to...nothing short of amazing." LA TIMES

"Earnest tales of downtrodden folk, seeking contact in a disconnected age." SPIN

"Occasionally you get lucky and stumble across a band at the very moment they ignite the engines and blast off into the heavens. The Airborne Toxic Event just gets louder and richer until the music practically bursts at the seams and spills its steaming guts across the stage." NME

"Even at its most desolate, The Airborne Toxic Event turns the most solemn of wakes into a glorious fanfare. Make no mistake about it, every single song tells its own story." DROWNED IN SOUND

"A compelling collision of influences from Springsteen, the Clash, Modest Mouse, Pulp, Franz Ferdinand and Arcade Fire cooked up into classic status in its own right. Favourite new band? Don't bet against it." LONDON TIMES

The Airborne Toxic Event are neither icons, nor saviors (they would say “there’s nothing to save, it saved us,”), nor pop stars, nor disinterested hipsters… They’re just a group of friends traveling from place to place, playing oddly redemptive songs, written during some oddly painful times.
