Atabey is a 5 piece Pop Punk, Post-hardcore band from New York. They have played numerous shows which include co-headlining Webster Hall more than once, performing at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, New York and Arlene's Grocery Store where bands such as Saosin have played before.
Atabey began in 2007 When vocalist, Eddie James and bassist Josh Agudo decided to put together a band that defined uniqueness, creativity and rebellious music.
The journey began when both men recruited Jessie Rodriguez as their guitarist, Manny Colon as their lead guitarist and Nija Walker as their drummer.
With diverse, influential musical taste, all 5 musicians put together melodic, detailed and inspiring music for everyone to enjoy. With a growing fan base and popularity among the New York Music local scene, Atabey has then continued to impress fans with vigorous live performances and stimulating, captivating, melodic lyrical and musical structures.
Atabey draws the influences from acts such as Finch, My Chemical Romance, The Used and Senses Fail.
