Atom Smash is a Miami, Florida-based hard rock band consisting of Sergio Sanchez (vocals), Marc "Taco" Annino (drums), Arnold Nese (bass), Alex "Z" Zilinski (guitar), and Luke "Cowboy" Rice (guitar) signed to Jive Records.



Atom Smash formed in a fairly unconventional manner. Producer Paul Trust first discovered Sergio Sanchez in 2006 and immediately they dove into the songwriting process. Sergio found Alex "Z" Zilinski on the internet through a reply to a classified ad, then realizing he lived in Austria brough him across the pond via a musician visa. Arnold Nese and Mark Annino joined the fold in 2007/2008 out of the ashes of the Doghouse Records band Sunday Driver with Luke Rice coming aboard in the spring of 2010 as the final piece of the puzzle. Dirk Hemsath of Doghouse Records and Working Group Artist Management signed on to manage the band and Atom Smash was signed by Jive Records in early 2010. The band's debut single "Do Her Wrong" was released nationally on July 15, 2010 and their debut album, Love Is In The Missile was released August 31, 2010.

Atom Smash was named "Best Recently Signed Band" by music columnist Allison Hagendorf[1] and has toured or performed with Drowning Pool, Buckcherry, Filter, RED, Cavo, Saliva, Halestorm, Tantric, and 12 Stones.
