The Airborne Toxic Event have just released their second album All At Once, the follow-up to their 2008 self-titled debut and it’s alternative radio hit “Sometime Around Midnight”. Natascha Malta joined TATE at the Opera House in Toronto on Friday 13 May a few hours before the band played another sold-out show on their Spring 2011 North America tour.
Steven Chen (guitar/keys) and Daren Taylor (drums) chatted to us about their new record, the concept of “selling out” and being on a major label in the current time as a recording artist. They also talked about their activism work with the Neda Speaks project and Amnesty International, and discussed the topic of politics in music.
