ATTENTION SYSTEM has created an institution based on hybridizing the sweaty, three-in-the-morning dance music they love with the guitars and drums they can’t seem to put down.

With dance, darkwave, electronica and punk at their core, Brian Fisher (vocals, keys), Joshua Broughton (guitar, vocals), Jonathan Davis (guitar), Chris Edmonds (bass) and Jason Curtis (drums) have fashioned something new. They´ve created what they only half-jokingly like to call “a rock band that’s mugged an electronica band and is digging through a stolen, dirty pair of pants for extra synth lines.”

They´ve been compared to The Faint; Prick; Nine Inch Nails; Does It Offend You, Yeah?; The Presets; and the Editors — and while the band certainly counts these bands among their influences, Attention System’s music packs a heavier punch while retaining all the danceable elements that make the electropunk genre so compelling.

In October of 2008 ATTENTION SYSTEM independently released a self-produced EP which earned the band generous local and regional radio airplay, plus a nationally televised commercial for the DIY Network. In April of 2010, they released their debut album Wait for My Signal on Surrounded by Light Records to critical and popular acclaim. In just under two years the band has gone from unknown local act to headlining packed weekend shows in Atlanta’s notorious underground rock and dance venues.

ATTENTION SYSTEM’s ultra-high-energy live shows have generated a city-wide buzz based on their unique guitar work, pounding rhythms, and their one-of-a-kind custom built and programed light rig. They were also awarded Readers’ Choice Award for Best New Music Act in The Creative Loafing’s Best of Atlanta (2009), played the main-stage at Dragon*Con (2010) as well as numerous slots opening for national touring acts and a die-hard local fan base.

They’ve spent the back half of 2010 throwing massive dance parties at home in Atlanta and relentlessly touring the southeast. They are currently busy writing their second album, which promises to be a dirty, danceable record full of the quirky guitars and blasting dance beats that critics and fans alike expect from this Atlanta stand-out.
