The Atlantic Union Project’s Top 5

The Atlantic Union Project is a brand new melodic punk rock band consisting of scene veterans. Ex-members of Come The Spring, Rydell and Damn This Desert Air have joined forces to create something really special.

This is their Top 5

TOP 5 pieces of equipment that every musician must own.


Mark Wilkinson:

  1. Tuning pedal
  2. Pedal board plus power supply
  3. Decent pair of ear plugs
  4. Guitar that stays in tune for more than one song
  5. Gaffer tape

TOP 5 pieces of advice NOT to follow, to make it in the music industry.


Craig Cirinelli (how to answer this and not be tongue-in-cheek?):

  1. Always remember, social media presence comes before the music. Anyone with a smartphone can make it.
  2. Don’t worry about using the same name as another band you’ve found easily. It’s not your problem and it won’t become an issue for either band.
  3. Do not write music for yourself first. Only write towards commercial appeal.
  4. Vie for the attention of a record label before you have quality material recorded simply to make them aware of your intent. They love that. Follow that email with your first demo of a song.
  5. When it’s time to gig, Pay to Play.  Sell tickets to your friends directly, otherwise buy the tickets yourself. Everyone will respect you funding the headlining band’s guarantee.
