Sometime Around Midnight

Sometime Around Midnight
By The Airborne Toxic Event

Definitely captures the emotions of the story with this song.
I don't think I'd want to call myself an airborne toxic event. lol

Indie rock band from LA, CA.
On 5 Aug 2008, the band released its first full-length album, The Airborne Toxic Event.
On 6 Dec 2008, iTunes named "Sometime Around Midnight" the #1 Alternative Song of the Year on their Best of 2008 list.

Everything that happened in the song actually happened.
In fact, everything on the record actually happened.
The Airborne Toxic Event album was conceived as a novel until songwriter Mikel Jollett realized his writing went better with music.
The Airborne Toxic Event took their name from the post-modern writer Don DeLillo's novel White Noise which won the National Book Award in 1985. In the story the main character is exposed to an enormous chemical explosion, dubbed "the Airborne Toxic Event," and is forced to confront his fear of death.
