Atari Teenage Riot Announce Music Video For ‘Black Flags’

Atari Teenage Riot have announced that their next single ”ËœBlack Flags (Feat. Boots Riley)’ will be released 3rd Oct 2011 ”“ The physical version features ten differing mixes of the track, however you can get the ”ËœBoots Riley’ version as a free download courtesy of Digital Hardcore Recordings.

ATR front man Alec Empire explains: “So we came up with this concept for the Black Flags video and it was pretty rad, but when members of the legendary hacker group Anonymous got in touch because they wanted to participate, the whole thing went from DIY punk rock to super awesome. Some snobbish journalists didn’t understand what we were talking about on the new album. Since the London riots and San Francisco BART operation, it’s different. The video contains only footage that fans, friends and Anonymous send us. People did the black flag corpsing/silent protesting in the weirdest places. In front of nuclear power plants, in shopping malls, in places that are not allowed for the public. This is the first edit; this video will never be finished really. We keep adding more clips from fans. Get involved!”

Atari Teenage Riot’s ”ËœBlack Flags’ package will be released on the October 3rd 2011. You can download the single ”ËœBlack Flags’, which is a different version from the one featured on the album ”ËœThis Is Hyperreal’ (LTW review) now.

Additionally, the band will return from their US tour and go straight into a series of European shows this autumn to coincide with the single’s release.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
