New (Free!) Atmosphere EP + Dates

Atmosphere’s new EP, titled “Leak At Will,” hit the hip hop duo’s online store last week. But you don’t have to wait for a fan to leak the EP – the digital seven-song album is available for the low, low price of $0.00.

Slug (Sean Daley) – who handles the rhymes for Atmosphere with Ant (Anthony Davis) acting as DJ/producer – announced the release of the EP on the group’s MySpace page.

“Hello party people. As we approach the launch of our new digital online store Anthony and myself have put together another project that we are giving away for free to any of you who sign up for a user account on our online store

“The project is a 7 song EP called Leak At Will, and it was a lot of fun to make. Nothing too serious, just smiles and cries. Consider it another ‘thank you’ for all of the support you have offered us over the years. To retrieve it, just follow these simple steps below. And again, thank you very much. Have a good summer. See you later player. S”
