Mikel Jollett and Noah Harmon of The Airborne Toxic Event. The band released their third studio album "Such Hot Blood" on Tuesday.

Seven years ago, a local journalist named Mikel Jollett decided it was time to stop writing about musicians and start making music himself. That was the beginning of the band now known as the Airborne Toxic Event. 

Their new record is called "Such Hot Blood," which became the number one alternative album on iTunes within one day of its release.


Joining us now in studio is Mikel Jollett and the band's bassist Noah Harmon.
