The Atomic Bitchwax is an American "Super Stoner Rock" band from Long Branch N.J. formed in 1993 by bassist/vocalist Chris Kosnik, guitarist Ed Mundell and drummer Keith Ackerman. Atomic Bitchwax mixes elements of 60s psychedelic rock and 70s riff rock, filtered though modern progressive rock. Their music has appeared in popular TV shows including Jackass, Home Wrecker and various Fox Sports broadcasts.The group originated as a jam band playing local bars in the New Jersey and New York area. This lineup released two full length records, the self-titled debut in 1999, and Atomic Bitchwax 2 in 2000 via Tee-Pee Records. In addition, they released the Spit Blood EP in 2002 via the Meteor City Label.
Ed was replaced in 2005 by guitarist/vocalist Finn Ryan (formerly of Core). The band focused on writing and touring for a year before entering Trax East Studios in South River, New Jersey to record their follow up, aptly titled 3. The 2005 release included two European and North American tours, along with a visit to Seattle's "Sound House" to record the 2006 EP, Boxriff. Engineered by Jack Endino, the EP included a DVD of live show filmed in Seattle's Sunset Tavern.

One of the greatest Stoner Rock groups to exist and still crank out albums that continue to beat the ever-living-shit out of what you thought was possible. I love the intensity and the forward march ego of The Atomic Bitchwax. Man you can't go wrong with any of their albums! Start with the first and it literally just gets better as they go on. Loved them for years and will continue to until Kosnik can't do it anymore!
