Adelaide, Australia native band Atlas Genius is coming around to the House of Blues Dallas for the second time this year. Their first time was with Imagine Dragons in February 2013 on ID’s first headling tour. Skip ahead eight months and the success of the single “Trojans” off their first EP, Through the Glass, as well as their first full album, When It Was Now, and you have Atlas Genius touring on their own headlining tour.
The band is made up of brothers Keith Jeffery (vocals/guitar) and Michael Jeffery (drums) who in no way thought Trojans was going to blow up like it did. They were both content to finish school before pursuing the band full-time, but their quick success led to other plans. Their current single is “If So.” They have played The Late Show and, more recently, Conan.
Atlas Genius will play the House of Blues Dallas on Thursday, October 24 and also at The Pageant in St. Louis, Missouri on October 28.
