Atlantic Thrills are tearing down the East Coast as we speak (see dates below). They hail from Providence, RI and play some rough N rowdy garage punk.
Almost Ready is proud to be releasing their debut single next month. 2 killer cuts at 1 low price. The single comes housed in a full color pocket sleeve with art by Avi Spivak (human being lawnmower).

Critics are already raving...
"Providence, RI?s Atlantic Thrills first single, ?Day At The Beach? ? is a surge of sunshine whose jangly guitar & raspy vocals are as fulfilling as a clam cake. It?s best played loudly while driving down RT 1 South on your way to Narragansett." - theunexcused.com
"Let this song be a part of your weekend soundtrack. It?s been hot as FUCK (there is no other way to say it) up here in the northeast, and a day at the beach is something we could all use right about now. Providence?s ATLANTIC THRILLS bring that to us, in sonic form, with this A-side to their debut single out on Brooklyn?s ALMOST READY RECORDS. This is garage rock done right, kids, and this time it?s coming from our own backyard. ?A Day at the Beach? sounds like jumping on your skateboard with a bag full of bourbon and mushrooms and going to meet all of your favorite scumbag friends down by the shore. A little surfy at times but this ain?t no BEACH BOYS song, it leans more towards the type of demented sound that LOS SAICOS were dreaming up in Peru in the 1960′s. I can?t wait to hear more from this band, I think they?re onto something." -Boston Hassle
