NEW ROCK RELEASES OF THE WEEK - APRIL 26

"All At Once", by Airborne Toxic Event
AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT - ALL AT ONCE (Island Records)
Produced by Dave Sardy (Oasis, Band of Horses, the Ting Tings, Twisted Wheel), 'Changing' is the first single pick from the Airborne Toxic Event's long-awaited new album, All At Once.

Since its release in 2008, The Airborne Toxic Event, the band's self-titled debut album has sold over 200,000 copies in the U.S., and over 300,000 copies internationally. Named Debut Album of the Year by the Boston Herald, the record spent 53 weeks on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, with eight of those weeks logged at #1. The album's breakthrough single 'Sometime Around Midnight' rose to #4 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart, and was named Alternative Song Of The Year at iTunes. The next single, 'Wishing Well,' broke the Top 20 at Alternative radio. The songs received major airplay internationally on BBC Radio 1 in the UK, Australia, France, Germany, Austria, Canada, Japan, Switzerland, and South East Asia.

The Airborne Toxic Event - Mikel Jollett (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Steven Chen (guitar, keyboards), Anna Bulbrook (viola, keyboards, tambourine, backing vocals), Noah Harmon (bass, backing vocals), and Daren Taylor (drums) - have earned their reputation as an aggressive touring band, known for playing more than 350 dates in support of their debut album release, supporting Kings of Leon, Franz Ferdinand, the Ting Tings, and many others. Indie Rock



"Cry Havoc", Destrophy
DESTROPHY - CRY HAVOC (Victory Records)
Over the last two years Destrophy have continued to build a strong name for themselves. Starting with an intelligent and enigmatic self-titled debut album on Victory Records, Destrophy exploded on the hard-rock circuit by touring with some of the biggest names in the genre including Type O Negative, OTEP, and Bury Your Dead.

Cry Havoc is the next rousing progression from Destrophy - it delivers a powerful message of inspiration and perseverance. The band has focused on bigger and broader tones with more emphasis on their catchy and sharply recognizable melodies. Cry Havoc delivers on Destrophy's distinct sound - blowing away the gamut of current radio rock. Hard Rock



"Dennis Coffey", Dennis Coffey
DENNIS COFFEY - DENNIS COFFEY (Strut Records)
For 2011, Dennis Coffey's new self-titled album is a revelation, a dense, fuzz-heavy haze of incendiary psychedelic soul. Much of the set recalls the sentiments of earlier solo work such as his seminal, trippy Hair 'N' Thangs album. For these sessions, in addition to a host of new compositions, Coffey personally cherry-picks tracks upon which he first appeared and enlists an illustrious guest list for all-new interpretations. Stones Throw's new soul hero Mayer Hawthorne takes up The Parliaments' poignant mid-tempo swayer 'All Your Goodies Are Gone,' Fanny Franklin from killer Hollywood funk combo Orgone voices a new version of Wilson Pickett's psych-soul jam 'Don't Knock My Love' and Lisa Kekaula from California garage-soul band the Bellrays takes on the 100 Proof Aged In Soul stomper 'Somebody's Been Sleeping.'

The Detroit connection looms large throughout the set - Mick Collins from the Dirtbombs alongside Detroit Cobras' Rachel Nagy unleash a dark, brooding take on Funkadelic's 'I Bet You.'. UK chart sensation Paolo Nutini contributes a passionate version of Rodriguez' 'Only Good For Conversation.' Completing the list of collaborations, Milwaukee funk sensations Kings Go Forth (Luaka Bop) mould an intense funk jam around some heavy Coffey licks on 'Miss Millie'. Funk Rock



"I'll Never Ge Out Of This World Alive"
STEVE EARLE - I'LL NEVER GET OUT OF THIS WORLD ALIVE (New West Records)
Steve Earle's I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive is the anticipated follow up to the Grammy Award winning 2009 release Townes. The 11- track set was produced by T Bone Burnett and is Earle's first collection of original material since his 2007 Grammy Award winning, Washington Square Serenade. Americana
