As well as, independently toured Europe twice in 2012 & 2013, playing shows in Berlin, Oldenburg, Amsterdam, London and Paris.
As members of the Toronto based collective 88 Days Of Fortune, ATS describes their third album as aggressive yet therapeutic. A release, a way to process, as well as a method of self care. Their Afro-Futuristic inspired production is a mashup of dub, trap, hip hop, and world beats overlaid with vocal loops and samples.
Their newest single “Ghost” produced by Sunsun , mixed by Red Bull Jamaica’s @MixedbyLytes (aka Tandra Jhagroo), is a reflection of their lived experiences. The song talks about loss of friendships, miscommunication, frustration, and self medication. Look out for their video dropping in a few weeks and their album “Above Top Secret” due in the summer.
