Atari Teenage Riot – Collapse Of History (Christine Remix) – Watch The Video Now!

Atari Teenage Riot – Collapse of History (Christine Remix) (Official Teaser)
… As featured on the “Collapse Of History” Remixes pt. 1 EP on Dim Mak Records:

“Collapse of History” (Remixes, Pt. 1):
This is the first instalment of the two part Collapse of History EP, with the second to follow in April. Alec Empire: “Our new single is called Collapse of History! It is an anthem for our generation. Information overload in the digital age. The track has a big war chant, which went down extremely well with festival crowds since we started playing it live. Can’t wait to perform this at Coachella!!!

We have just finished our video (online) for the track in Paris with a great cast of actors. The location of the shoot was a mental institution in the suburbs. It was wild!!!

It’s another single that is sung by Nic Endo who takes ATR into a new direction. B52s, L7, riot grrrl, Blondie,
Deee-Lite were an inspiration. I had to do forty overdubs, because we thought it would be funny to have a
little army of Alec Empire clones singing along. The biggest inspiration for this song was probably the Atari
video game classic Pong. We did a remix contest, AND also got official remixes done by a number of amazing producers! The next two months of our campaign will focus on Collapse Of History! We are putting out this full on remix EP first, then will follow it up with the single later. It’s perfect for DJs to spin.”

Remixers include Christine (who have worked with Amon Tobin and Nag Nag Nag), StereoHeroes (M.I.A. and Pony Pony Run Run remixes), Sharkslayer (releases on the Kitsune and Yes, Yes labels), and Twist The Black
Box (noted for work with Diplo and Teeth).

Atari Teenage Riot – The Tumblr

Tim Gauthier

Alec Empire of Atari Teenage Riot, with semi-frequent updates from the rest of the crew & management, have an official Tumblr page setup, voicing all matters- from political to band related. In more recent context, Alec has taken on his stance on the 1999 Sony Advertisement where they impermissibly used an Atari Teenage Riot track in South East Asia:

“I felt used, exploited, ripped off…everything that a sensitive artist like myself would feel in that situation… Even though the thing got settled in court kind of, I never felt they paid what they owed.

So when the request for the Sony Vita ad landed on my lap, I put ‘Black Flags’ into it…it was all hectic and they okayed it.”

In the end, Atari Teenage Riot & Alec Empire place most of their financial gain into the #FreeAnons, Anonymous Solidarity Network; a support system dedicated to assisting those who are facing prosecution for alleged involvement in “Anonymous” activities, wherein came the “Black Flags” single.

Atari Teenage Riot Re-Cap From The Garage, London

Tim Gauthier

As reviewed by Artrocker Magazine, check out the official re-cap from Atari Teenage Riot’s performance at The Garage in London.

“Being asked to review ATR is a daunting thing, because their influence is perhaps something that won’t be known for years – so you end up reviewing the NOW while wishing you could view the WHOLE DAMN THING. Ah, Fft. Maybe that’s all we can do.

Atari Teenage Riot – US & World Tour for 2012!

Tim Gauthier

Atari Teenage Riot Presents: Is The Hyperreal? 2012 World Tour!

Atari Teenage Riot toured worldwide throughout 2011 and in November recorded this live show in Tokyo to bring listeners just a taste of their incendiary live show, described by the NME as “…a cavalcade of forever-young yelps: a brilliantly nasty volley of universe-shaping techno-metal.” Rock-a-Rolla wrote: “Seizure-inducing levels of strobe lighting are joined by breakbeats, jungle, drum ’n’ bass and caustic guitar samples at every turn, providing enough variety and energy to prove that this is no mere nostalgia trip for them, this is a return to arms.”

Now if that doesn’t tempt you….

2012 is the 20th anniversary of Atari Teenage Riot so expect much to happen this year, including a remastered version of the classic ‘Burn, Berlin, Burn’ album, new singles and a studio album. The band will be touring internationally, beginning in February in Europe and South America, continuing throughout Europe, with stops in North America, including a live performance at the 2012 Coachella Music Festival.

ARTISTdirect “Leaks” Atari Teenage Riots’ “Riot In Japan 2011”

Tim Gauthier

“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.

Atari Teenage Riot & Rowdy Present The February Beatport Chart

Tim Gauthier

Atari Teenage Riot and Rowdy have released the official February Beatport chart, featuring 10 must-have tracks for all fans of ATR community alike. We’re pretty impressed with this chart as it truely encompasses the varying and unique style of ATR’s sound. With the addition of Rowdy, we’re excited to see what new sound might come in the near future.

“Rowdy Superstar is the first British member of ATR which is interesting considering the role of the UK in the evolution of the band “We need a true voice from Great Britain! The London riots last year, the politics, etc etc … it is more important than ever to hear a musician who is so close to all that while the musical mainstream doesn’t reflect the reality anymore.” ~Alec Empire

– Atari Teenage Riot – Ghost Chase
– Maluca – El Tigeraso (Sticky K Remix)
– Dan Siciliano – Wifey
