Atomic Fungus

Atomic Fungus is popping up everywhere. Thriving for years in the underbelly of San Francisco's music scene, the band is positioned to explode onto the airwaves with their debut album, Shroom Fume, and its breakout single, "Gears of War." They wrap their topical lyrics in Zappa-esque time signatures combined with sentimental melodies a la Journey and deliver them with System of a Down–like impact. Enrapt fans have a name for the new genre they are pioneering: Death Lounge Fusion.
