Mad Atlantic is the rock guise of singer/songwriter/producer Kaelin Bougneit. Founded in 2005 in Wisconsin, Mad Atlantic has taken many different experimental turns. In 2009, Mad Atlantic self-released his self-titled debut. Mad Atlantic's second rock album Life in Stone arrived mid-2010 and featured a more experimental, dark sound. His third release, First Aid saw a return to the politically-driven rock that filled his debut. It was released in 2011 and some profits were briefly donated to victims of the 2011 Japan crisis.
