Atom and His Package

Average Rating:

Hometown: Philadelphia, PA (USA)


Adam (Atom) Goren combined his love of quirky pop–punk with his odd sense of humor and a synthesizer he dubbed the package to create a style all his own. While his early efforts could easily be described as a "comedy" punk band, his sense of songwriting and melody creating some extremely enjoyable, if not unlikely, punk songs.

Atom put the package to sleep however, focusing on his career as a high school teacher, but has since released an album with friends from Paint it Black, Kill The Man Who Questions under the moniker Armalite.
