Air Traffic Control is a rock band with an alternative twist. The independent and self-managed three-piece originated as Madhat and earned three nominations for Alternative Recording of the Year by the East Coast Music Association (1999, 2001 and 2003).
The band changed their name to Air Traffic Control in 2005, and continue to gain recognition: New Group of the Year nomination by Music Nova Scotia (2005), #1 East Coast Countdown (2006), Rock Recording of the Year nomination by the East Coast Music Association (2011), and Alan Cross of The Edge Radio Station (Toronto, 2011) says, "The #1 band to check out today." The band’s music has been featured on Much Music, Satellite Radio, television shows (Degrassi and 15 Love), movies, radio stations across Canada and the United States, magazine covers (Muzik), and on the video game EA Sports Rugby.
Air Traffic Control has just released their fourth record Tear the House Down (2012), as the band builds on their list of accomplishments from their previous albums: Air Traffic Control (self-titled 2005), To Be Free (2007), and Can’t Kill Love (2009).
