DOWNLOAD: Atmosphere - "Shoulda Known" (MP3, Clean Version)

Slug of Atmosphere (Jordon Daley)

Slug and Ant (AKA Atmosphere) are on their way back to NYC, having scheduled July 27th at Webster Hall as part of their ongoing "When God Gives You Ugly Tour". Tickets are on sale. The show is one of a handful of US dates lined up for this summer including an appearance at Lollapalooza, another at the 10,000 Lakes Festival (with Wilco, Akron/Family, many others), and a show at Red Rocks with MURS, Aesop Rock, Eyedea & Abilities, and Attracted To Gods. (Um, why can't we get that lineup too?)

The "When God Gives You Ugly Tour" is doing double duty, both promoting their latest LP When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold (now available in a Deluxe Edition with a bonus DVD), as well as celebrating the re-release of their breakthrough LP God Loves Ugly with a bonus DVD.

Originally released as the limited Sad Clown Bad Dub 4 (The Godlovesugly Release Parties) DVD, it features 2 hours of live performance footage, backstage shenanigans, several special guest appearances and music videos for "Godlovesugly", "Summersong" and "Say Shh". Out of print for years, this DVD has been repackaged in a custom sleeve that comes inserted in with the re-issue of God Loves Ugly.
