Biography

The Airborne Toxic Event first emerged in 2006, centered around the powerful songcraft of Mikel Jollett, already an acclaimed freelance journalist, editor, and writer whose work had appeared in such prestigious publications as McSweeney’s, the Los Angeles Times, and FILTER, among many others. The band’s self-titled debut album followed two years later, highlighted of course by the breakthrough hit single, “Sometime Around Midnight,” an RIAA gold-certified, top 5 smash on Billboard’s “Alternative Songs” chart, later ranked at #1 on iTunes’ “Best of 2008: Alternative” tally.

The Airborne Toxic Event spent much of its time on the road in the years that followed, including sold out world headline tours, countless international festival sets spanning Coachella and Lollapalooza to Japan’s Fuji Rock and the UK’s Reading/Leeds, and more. Known for their epic sonic energy and potent showmanship, the band have performed with a number of American symphony orchestras – including the Louisville Orchestra and the Colorado Symphony Orchestra – in addition to collaborations with the Los Angeles-based Calder Quartet, the Lalo Guerrero School of Music Choir, and Los Angeles’ Belmont High School Marching Band, among others.
