Swedish SMASH ATOMS (feat. former members of THE TORCH) Unleash Brand New Video Single “Into The Light”!

Following their recent signing with M-Theory Audio and a video clip for the track “Down”, that has been added to almost two dozen US commercial rock radio stations yet, Gothenburg’s grungers SMASH ATOMS return with a lyric video for their latest single “Into The Light”!

Eager to follow-up the relative success of their debut and build upon it SMASH ATOMS share “Into The Light” now on all streaming/download digital platforms, while the video can be viewed here: 

“Smash Atoms are very excited to release the next single ‘Into the Light’ today,” responds Martin Söderqvist.“The song dives into the depths of mortality and travelling beyond this life to where ‘many have gone before but no-one has come back alive.’ ‘Into The Light’ mixes chromatic riffing with a melodic chorus, which together with Kenji Tsunami’s visual art, takes the listener on a special journey.”

Both songs come from the band’s impending debut full-length, expected at the end of summer. Highly influenced by the ‘90s SMASH ATOMS intend to bring it all back in a new form. The quartet’s enjoyment and intention when creating their first album was to highlight a familiar yet captivating sound. Check out the music video for first single “Down” below, or stream/download the track at all digital platforms.

While the influences are obvious, there is something charming, nostalgic and infectiously endearing about the group’s material culminating in what will surface as a very strong album recorded at Crehate Studios (In Flames, Scorpions, Avatar) in Gothenburg, Sweden.

SMASH ATOMS’ story actually originates back to 2012 when they formed, releasing one smashing demo and playing a handful of magical shows before U.S.-born singer Glen Gilbert stepped out and the remaining trio changed their name to THE TORCH with Martin now also handling vocals. The Torch recorded two albums, gaining national Swedish radio play and touring all over places like Scandinavia, Germany and Italy. But two years ago, Glen (The Story Behind, Hide the Knives) and the guys reconnected and decided to revert back to their former incarnation and give SMASH ATOMS another chance and here we are. Check out “Into the Light” and “Down” and anticipate more captivating songs in the coming months!
