“Tatiana DeMaria is a star in the making” – Boston Herald

“Perfect really” – Timeout

“KKKK” - KERRANG!

"Best band on Warped Tour…. TAT is by far the breath of fresh air that the music scene has desperately needed. From the fast melodic music to the inspirational lyrics TAT has it all and will become one of music's greats." - Dead American Punk Zine

“TAT’s music runs through a musical spectrum of vintage riff-rock, metal, glam rock and ska, powered by a full-on, hard-edged attack that incorporates punk’s founding spirit in both attitude and substance.” – News Miner (Fairbanks, AK)

“Pinpoint pop-punk with an extra helping of attitude” – Rocky Mountain News

“If you wish Lily Allen or Kate Nash were (even more) pottymouthed and in a punk-tinged band, or that the Poppy edges of Paramore were sanded off, TAT is for you” – FMQB

“Thank god I checked them out because TAT is one of the most exciting bands I've seen in a while. This is definitely a band to look out for in future.” - LA CITYZINE

“In short it’s attitude. There is enough anger, passion, and shocking honesty in this band. It’s a powerful mix and they have it down just right. The future could be TAT... The time is right and TAT stand on the verge of Huge-dom.” - BLOGCRITICS

TAT: n. rubbish, trash, 'an old load of tat' (orig. unkn.)
TAT: n. a 3 piece, female fronted, rock band. (orig. London Town)

Straight from the Queen's womb, placenta in hand, TAT conquered the UK underground, sold 10,000 EP’s independently, took the money, shacked up with US producer Russ-T Cobb (The Academy Is.., Sevendust, Hot Hot Heat etc) and up and coming producer Dean Dichoso to record “Soho Lights,” their debut album. It hits stores in North America and online everywhere on October 28th, via Sony/RED distribution and self-released on their own record label.

It all started with an accidental month on the US Vans Warped Tour in 2006 where the band, who originally set out to play 8 dates, were offered the rest of the tour totalling 28 dates, scoring them some great interest and opportunities including 2007 support tours with The Bouncing Souls, Me First and The Gimme Gimmes, and NOFX round the UK and Europe which they were lucky enough to get through personal invites from the bands themselves.

2006 - 2007 was certainly a strong time for the band, but it was not their first. TAT have been churning out hits for 4 years . "When we got together as the 3 piece we are today, 4 years ago, getting signed just wasn’t a priority... we had to get good first." says Tatiana DeMaria the bands’ front woman and songwriter.

And that they did! Playing over 200 hundred shows including supports with The Offspring, Therapy?, an arena tour of Poland, playing Reading Festival 2004 and Download Festival 2005 earning them some great reviews and new friends at radio in the UK and Europe. Their debut single - Peace Sex and Tea charted in the UK's top 100 as did their second single; Pessimist live from Reading festival, which entered the UK BBC Rock Chart at no 18.

TAT ended the summer of 2008 playing the Vans Warped Tour, taking only 2 weeks off Warped to support the legendary Alice Cooper. By the Fall, they took the US by the horns with another 2 months on the North American and Canadian roads, this time supporting Lagwagon and MXPX. They released an EP for the 2008 Summer/Fall tours, “This Is…TAT,” featuring tracks from the forthcoming debut release sold only at shows. It debuted on Aug 20th at #7 on the Billboard Mountain Regional Heat Seeker Chart. The EP was picked up at a Warped date and the track “Road To Paradise” was tested by alternative rock station KTCL/Area 93 in Denver, CO in July 2008 and added immediately into daily rotation, climbing up their charts and Top 5 in phone requests!

“Soho Lights” tracks appeared on the FMQB Submodern radio chart (peaking at #6 on the singles chart amid artists like Cold War Kids, The Streets, Eagles of Death Metal, Jack White & Alicia Keys, Kaiser Chiefs, TV on the Radio, and Smashing Pumpkins), and the CMJ radio chart (peaking at #134, including 183 college stations adding TAT).

They return Stateside in 2009 to continue promoting “Soho Lights,” starting with the entire 2009 Vans Warped Tour.
