Against Tomorrows Sky
Against Tomorrow's Sky formed in the summer of 2000. Hailing from the often overlooked music scene in Colorado Springs, Co., ATS was received with great enthusiasm right from the start. The band takes it's name from the song "Sweet Thing" by Van Morrison. Their vision is simple: Make music with as much heart as possible without resorting to lyrical cliches & exaggerated angst. Quality lyrics, infectious melodies, & interesting arrangements are just as important to them as loud guitars. But they do bring the loud guitars with a live show that is guaranteed to get your head nodding. They have been compared to bands as diverse as Slint & Superchunk & have played with band as diverse as Spoon, Cursive, The Good Life, The Pattern, Planes Mistaken for Stars, Brandston, Liars Academy, Mistletoe, Dressy Bessy, & Pedro the Lion. ATS just released their first cd on Universal Warning Records (UniversalWarningRecords.com) called "Jump the Hedges First". 8 songs that mix soulful vocals with competent musicianship, hooks for days, & intelligent lyrics.
