ALBUM: Atomism

FILE UNDER: Rock / Indie / Alternative

LABEL: www.50records.com

INFO: White Light Riot consists of Minneapolis natives, brothers Mike and Mark Schwandt, Joe Christenson and Dan Larsen. These incredibly talented musicians craft catchy songs that appeal to fans of both indie rock and Britpop. Though often compared to The Killers, The Strokes or Franz Ferdinand, White Light Riot blend originality with influences of the past. Atomism, their first full-length album, was produced/co-engineered by Brent Sigmeth (Grant Hart, They Might Be Giants, Tim O’Reagan, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott), co-engineered by Paul Marino (The New Congress, Desdemona) and mastered by Bob Ludwig. It was released nationally August 21, 2007 by RED Distribution (Sony BMG). It has already been named one of the best releases out of Minneapolis in 2007. The first single, “Out Of Sight,” was the #4 most added single at college radio earlier this summer and is currently charting on all 3 charts at specialty radio nationally.

The foursome have been playing together since 2005 and already have released two EPs, The Dark Is Light Enough, produced by Erik Appelwick (Tapes ‘N Tapes) and Out of Sight, produced/co-engineered by Sigmeth. They were named one of the best new bands in Minneapolis in 2006. With sophisticated lyrics, perfected melodies and tight, driving rhythms, their music keeps audiences engaged and attracts new fans with every show.
