Tuned In to Atomic Tom
March 13, 2011 (WPVI) -- Our featured Tuned In band this week is Atomic Tom.
This Brooklyn NYC based Alternative Rock group has earned international recognition for not only their music, but also their innovative approach to reaching their fans.
The video for their song "Take Me Out" has over 4.5 million views on YouTube. The creative plot behind the video involves the band playing the song on four iPhones after their instruments were stolen.
We caught up with them during a sold out show at The North Star Bar. They spoke candidly to us about the special chemistry they share on stage, and with their ever growing fan base.
Please enjoy their biography courtesy of their record label, Universal Republic Records.

ATOMIC TOM's clever and catchy rock comes to life vibrantly on stage. Anthems such as the band's hit single, "Take Me Out," were made for the live setting, and ATOMIC TOM will surely have fans all over singing along to every word once they hit the road.
