TAT are a three piece melody driven punk band who formed in 2002 by front
woman TatianaDeMaria . They play what they want, from Punk to Power Ballads, from Ska to Hip Hop, all however, respecting their general path of energetic loud rock with a meaning. Over the years TAT suffered an almost complete line up change with the gradual replacement of its original members due to commitment clashes. The band now stands as a three piece with TatianaDeMaria on Guitar and Vocals Nick Kent on bass, and Jake Reed on drums.
'We're burning up with energy to just get up and kick out fast loud melodies and go all out. We get the biggest kick out of seeing people getting off on our
music, just the way we do with bands we adore.' says Tatiana. 'Its very
important to us though, that every song has it's meaning. If a song is going to
be a piss take it's got to be an all out piss take...but if it's going to be
anything else, its got to be lyrically "right" and have substance. If we've
achieved that with a melody we like, then we're ready to rock !'
TAT recently supported the Offspring in Paris and are heavily supported by the
Extreme Sports channel. The band have been touring and promoting their
latest 'Live' single (Pessimist) from the UK Reading festival 2004 and
documentary on the band itself and their summer tour 2004 ('Another Wasted
Summer'), which includes NASS Festival, Newquay's 'Animal Beach Band Ball'
and others. The band have released two singles themselves, including their
debut single 'Peace, Sex & Tea' and their 'live' follow up, 'Pessimist', which
entered the UK rock chart at #18. They are now on tour promoting the new material and will be playing various summer festivals around the UK and
Europe - to be announced. Their debut album is expected sometime this year.
