About

"The Atlanta-based rockers debut is philosophy flavored ear candy surrounded by a wall of guitars and hypnotic synths. Melody never takes a back seat; it's the manic driver with a destination set on getting stuck in your head." -AbsolutePunk.net

Thoughts Are Nuclear:

Josh Purgason- vocals
Acea Lashley- guitar
Andy Davis- drums
Matt Hunter- bass/keys
Luke Ethridge- guitar

“I started writing at the age of 15 on an acoustic guitar that my parents purchased. My dad told my mom it would just be a phase so he kept the purchase on the cheap side, I believe I stuck at it because music was my own personal therapist and to show my father that my ambition was in no way connected to the solar moon cycle. My dad was very abusive to my mother and I was stuck in the middle listening to things no kid should have to. Headphones were my escape and best friend so as I grew older I wanted to be that escape for others, something to turn to when you’re happy, sad, angry, or balls to the walls hyper. After countless coffee shop gigs and open mics (from the age of 18-26) I finally carried a collection of about twenty songs to my producer/friend Acea Lashley. I compare the work of a producer to a salon stylist; they take an already pretty girl that is shy/quite and dress her to the nines until she is turning every head in town. We picked the 10 strongest tracks and begun recording 2 EP's (first one releasing 05/28/13 and the second due sometime early 2014). After fleshing out exactly what I had envisioned in the studio, other musicians quickly came to my aid to bring the album to life live. Now equipped with a line-up of very talented band mates and dedicated/driven souls, I look forward to what the future has in store for us and how much we can help push the boundaries along with other up & coming artists in the alternative music scene.”

    I love the tribal feel of the percussion. A touch of Genises/Phil Collins if they happened to do a instrumental. Love your stuff friend!
