Still glowing from triumphant performances at both weekends of Coachella and a new album, Such Hot Blood, out today (April 30), Los Angeles’ Airborne Toxic Event is adamant about sharing the band’s fiery passion with fans.

“We called the record Such Hot Blood because they’re hot-blooded songs and we just wanted to be upfront about that,” singer Mikel Jollett told Radio.com in an exclusive interview.

“From day one, the idea with the Airborne Toxic Event was to not be disinterested,” he elaborated. “We’d all been in bands before where you stare at your feet and you wear a certain kind of jacket and try to look cool.”

In stark contrast, Jollett said that Airborne Toxic Event’s wildly diverse sound is borne from the band’s determination to stay true to what’s in their collective heart.

“Some of the music’s like really, really big, orchestral and epic, and some of it’s quiet whispery folk and some of it’s punk and you sort of ask yourself, ‘what do these songs have in common?’” the singer said. “What I think they all have in common was that they’re all very passionate and earnest.”
