Atari Teenage Riot have been working away on a new album, the first results of which they’re teasing us with in the form of a video snippet just released today.
On top of the video comes the news that ATR are embarking on a European Tour which kicks off at Heaven in London on the 24th October 2013.
Says the press release:
Atari Teenage Riot have finished recording their new album and are currently mastering it using the latest motion picture technology in Los Angeles to make it as loud and powerful as any major Hollywood blockbuster soundtrack.
The new album comes out early 2014. It’s the first to feature new member Rowdy Superstar who ‘s understandably looking forward to playing a date with the band in his home city of London:
“Over the last two years I’ve played with Atari everywhere from Coachella in the Californian desert to Moscow during a Russian winter, through South America and all around South East Asia but this is a chance to show my home crowd how it’s done”.
Atari Teenage Riot have always been a highly politicised band. Indeed “…they are the embodiment of crowd surging excitement, a social manifesto and a warning that government is there for its own good not yours.” They are as relevant today as they’ve ever been, indeed, many would say more so with the world being throttled by the steely grasp of bankers & money people.
Atari Teenage Riot have been a highly influential act for decades now & their live shows are notoriously incendiary events, so if you can possibly get along to the London date (or any of the European ones – details of which follow the video) we encourage you to do so! Check out our epic review of their show at The Fleece in Brsitol a couple of years ago if you need proof of that!
