TEMPERED – March 24th, 2017

Our latest album, TEMPERED, released on March 24th, 2017. Over two years ago, when we sat down and talked about writing a new album, our conversation evolved into us reminiscing about our favorite bands and songs. We knew it would take a very long time but we wanted to sail out on a journey, an authentic album making experience and something pure beyond what we’ve done before. Not just writing songs about the thought of the experience but, taking the time to live them and write about them. 





Behind the music, features and band updates.

  • Band Fun @ Dewey Beach Music Fest

    I could probably write two pages worth of awesomeness on this festival. One of our favorite things to do as a band is be around or jam with other bands. When you take a trip out of...

  • Euler’s Metal Song

    In spring of 2013, I couldn’t believe my ears!  I couldn’t believe my eyes! Did I read the numbers right?  Did I play the numbers right?  Are these really the digits...





Explosive rock band Big Atlantic harnesses the raw energy of a rock n roll show with modern music that radiates pure joy with deep roots in the rich, industrial Pittsburgh scene and heavily inspired by such powerhouse guitar-driven rock legends as The Foo Fighters, Rush, STP, The Who and Led Zeppelin.

Together, they vibrate with gritty guitar melodies, fast driving rhythms and rich vocal harmonies, unleashing an earth-shaking sonic wave of sound. The band’s absorbing, intimate live shows and well-crafted recordings showcase members’ technical command of their instruments, effortless chemistry and talent for pouring pure heart into every performance.

Collectively, they have collaborated and played shows with such national acts as Sha Na Na, The Goo Goo Dolls, Foo Fighters, Alien Ant Farm, Ballyhoo!, Rusted Root, Iration, and The Movement. In summer of 2016, Big Atlantic provided VIP entertainment at First Niagara Pavilion alongside Disturbed, Breaking Benjamin, and Alter Bridge.

Big Atlantic released their debut album, MOTIVE, in 2012 produced by Rob Freeman.  This earned them radio airplay within the tri-state area and their first taste of success.

Returning to work with Rob at The Pilot Studio, TEMPERED is their latest collection. Thirteen songs written about the evolution of the group that plays like the soundtrack to an epic motion picture. The larger-than-life songs tell stories about the musicians’ personal, emotional travels down life’s many roads and side streets finding the ability to face adversity, find triumphant strength and perseverance.
Currently, Big Atlantic is performing multiple dates, conferences and festivals in support of their new album, TEMPERED, released on 3/24/17.
