By | October 9, 2001 at 12:00 AM

In anticipation of their forthcoming release “Atomic,” Lit have lined up a slew of TV performances and other promotional activities surrounding its October 16 CD release date. “Atomic” is the follow-up to their platinum-plus “A Place In The Sun,” which garnered the hit singles “Miserable,” “Zip-Lock,” and the #1 Billboard Modern Rock song of 1999, “My Own Worst Enemy.”

Earlier this summer fans got a taste of “Atomic” with the song “The Last Time Again” when it was featured in the #1 smash comedy movie “American Pie 2.” The official first single, “Lipstick and Bruises,” is currently #11 on Billboard’s Modern Rock chart. A. Jay Popoff (lead vocals), Jeremy Popoff (guitars), Kevin Baldes (bass) and Allen Shellenberger (drums) will finish up their promotional club tour this coming week and are set to perform on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on Wednesday, October 10. On Friday, October 12, the band will make an appearance on MTV’s TRL show to debut the “Lipstick and Bruises” video and introduce their new superhero “Mulletron.” Mulletron is an 8′ 2″ robot constructed with parts from a mobile home. Mulletron’s mission is to bring happiness and harmony to the people by giving them all something to celebrate… the mullet. His hands are equipped with scissors and a vent brush for the perfect mullet sculpting, and his eyes feature a laser beam that can actually grow a mullet on someone whose hair might be too short, ensuring that no one is left out of the excitement.

The following week Lit will be back in California to perform a free show at the Santa Anita Racetrack on Saturday, October 13 with Handsome Devil and MXPX. Sunday, October 14 the guys will offer their best advice when they team up with Dr. Drew & Adam Corolla on KROQ’s “Loveline” show from 10:00 p.m. to midnight. On Tuesday, October 16 at 7:00 p.m. the band will make an in-store appearance at the Wherehouse Music Store in Irvine. Wednesday, October 17 at 7:00 p.m. will bring them to the Best Buy store in Riverside where they will be signing copies of “Atomic.” Rounding out the month of October, Lit will perform on “The Late, Late Show with Craig Kilborn” on Halloween.
