Subatlantic Celebrates Record Release

This Father’s Day, Sunday, June 16th, Subatlantic is throwing themselves a party. There are two fathers in the band, but this party is for all the members, friends, and supporters, and for how hard they worked together at creating a new record. Subatlantic’s album release party will take place at Rozz Tox in Rock Island, where they will throw an all-ages, free show to thank the Quad Cities and everyone who worked so hard on their new record: Villains.

For almost 10 years Subatlantic has been making original music that goes from sonorous and orchestral to danceable alternative pop. They work on creating interesting textures of sounds and dynamics that help tell the stories with the lyrics from the band’s singer, Becca Rice. They work on melodies, vocal harmonies, and arrangements— sometimes for months-—to figure out the right instrumentation and arrangements for their songs.

Villains, their 12-song album, will be available at the show. Downloads and CDs will also be available and can be purchased or listened to in advance at They’ve been creating, with amazing help from their friend Tim D’Avis, videos to highlight their new material, which can be seen (and heard) at
