Starting in 2006, Picture Atlantic came out of the San Jose hardcore scene on a quest to create memorable and melodic rock music. Their 2008 LP Kleos had reviewers drawing comparisons to The Killers, Coldplay, The Cure, The Police, Radiohead, and Death Cab For Cutie.
During almost two years of touring and playing shows, the band have shared the stage with the likes of Say Anything, Dan Black, Jaguar Love, and The Wooden Birds. Towards the end of 2009, Picture Atlantic headed back to the studio to create the rich and moody EP Dulce Et Decorum Est. This endeavor, released in early 2010, brought out a much more mature and stripped down sound for the band, and was complimented by Performer Magazine as being "sensational, with a captivating beauty that emanates from every note."
