The Airborne Toxic Event has signed with Majordomo Records, with thier self-titled debut album due out on August 5th, 2008. A buzz band in the truest sense, Airborne have become the darlings of local radio and press and fixtures on the Silver Lake music scene, garnering comparisons to everyone from Modest Mouse and The Arcade Fire, to the Clash and U2. With songs that feature unforgettable hooks, and what the Los Angeles Times referred to as “poetry you can dance to,” their now legendary five-week residency at Silver Lake’s Club Spaceland culminated with a sold-out show in which nearly a thousand people showed up to the tiny club. The Silver Lake-based five-piece was formed in 2006 by singer Mikel Jollett and drummer Daren Taylor, who were soon joined by bassist Noah Harmon, keyboardist and classically trained violinist Anna Bulbrook, and guitarist Steven Chen.
