New Bret Higgins' Atlas Revolt Release!!

Illusion Machine is being released by Chant Records and will be available May 14th, 2018

Picking up from where the band left off with their 2015 debut CD on Tzadik records, Bret Higgins’ Atlas Revolt digs deeper, refining a collaborative sound which draws upon film score, desert-blues, psychedelia, Balkan, and Central & South American music.  On their sophomore recording Illusion Machine, the usual line-up adds sixth man of the year, virtuoso percussionist Juan Carlos Medrano to the fold, elevating the overall sound into a darker and more orchestral version of itself. The music on Illusion Machine is overflowing with exciting rhythms, searing guitar work and beautiful melodies, performed by an incredible group.
