ARTISTdirect.com has partnered with Dim Mak and the digital hardcore heroes Atari Teenage Riot to premiere the Collapse of History EP. The EP by the German noiseniks will be on sale to the public through all DSPs on March 20, so you can spend the next few days listening and learning, and loving it. Consider this the “try before you buy” option.
“It’s about energy,” exclaims Atari Teenage Riot singer Alec Empire of the band’s live gigs.
The digital hardcore pioneers distill visceral energy into Riot in Japan 2011. Captured during their triumphant set at the Fuji Rock Festival, the group’s latest release for Dim Mak is an explosive and energizing snapshot of one of their legendary live performances. The band sounds intensely infectious as they run through classic songs as well as “Activate!” Empire and co. did something that’s normally impossible for rock and electronic acts—they made a live record that really does make listeners feel like they were there. Not only that, it’s as potent as one of their studio efforts.
Riot in Japan 2011 drops on February 28, 2012 via Dim Mak, but Atari Teenage Riot has partnered with ARTISTdirect.com to exclusively stream the album below.
“When Hillside West drops on March 20, 2012 via Dim Mak Records, dance floors worldwide will be destroyed in the best way possible. Garraud’s sophisticated techno production collides with Alesia’s dubstep wizardry for a hybrid that’s bound to get bodies moving everywhere. There’s an underground vibrancy coursing through the framework of Hillside West, and it shines brilliantly.” ~ Rick Florino, ARTISTdirect
