East Coast Shake: Atlantic Thrills release new 7-inch, take explosive live show on road


A kick-ass garage rock band from Providence that’s been making waves while bringing the party every time they play live, Atlantic Thrills today released a new 7-inch single, “Bed Bugs,” off Brooklyn based label Almost Ready Records. Continuing a week of good news, the three-minute garage rock track was premiered on Vice affiliate Noisey yesterday, and Thursday the quartet embark on a tour that kicks off in York, Pennsylvania, with New Hampshire rock and rollers Notches.

They’ll also be making a couple stops in Brooklyn at Hank’s Saloon on August 28 with The Bamboo Kids, Party Lights, and The Thigh Highs, and play a show at Shea Stadium on September 4 with ONWE, The Britanys, and Cosmonaut. Sandwiched in between will be a homecoming bash in Providence at Aurora on August 29 with Attleboro surf punk darlings Neutrinos, guitar-pop trio Eric & The No No’s, and Boston glam punks the Monsieurs.

While you gear up for when Atlantic Thrills come rip apart your friendly neighborhood music venue, check out the band’s new single below. It has a cool combination of rockabilly and surf vibes that makes it just right to blast through your speakers during the dog days of summer.
