"Trojans" was named an iTunes "Single of the Week" in Australia and New Zealand. Stateside, things blew up in early 2012 for Atlas Genius, despite minimal promotional efforts from the unsigned band. "Trojans" spent four consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the listener-generated Alt-18 countdown of SiriusXM's Alt-Nation while single sales skyrocketed past 45,000 and an acoustic video of "Trojans" premiered on MTV2 and the home pages of MTV, MTV2, mtvU, MTV Hive and MTV Buzzworthy. Finally, after months of communicating with numerous record labels via Skype, Atlas Genius came to the U.S. in February 2012 for meetings and, ultimately, they chose to sign with Warner Bros. Records.
