Consequence of Sound premiered 4 live videos from Atari Teenage Riot which you can see HERE or watch “Activate”, “The Only Slight Glimmer Of Hope” , “Blood In My Eyes” and“Collapse Of History” directly on vimeo HERE .
The concert footage was captured by 5 cameras on May 1st 2011, when Atari Teenage Riot played a secret show at Berlin’s legendary techno club Tresor to premiere their new album Is This Hyperreal? live.  A new stage was built on the 2nd floor of the building where the public is not usually allowed.  A small amount of fans were able to win free tickets to attend the show. Alec Empire of Atari Teenage Riot says: ”It was amazing to perform the new songs at this historic location. This is pretty much where techno started in the 90ties. It reminded people of old sci-fi movies from the 20ties like Fritz Lang’s Metropolis.Felt very intimate and nobody knew the new tracks…very exciting!”
Atari Teenage Riot’s “Black Flags (feat. Boots Riley)” remix package available with 7  “Black Flags” remixes by
Tony Senghore, Andy’s ILL Remix, Taku Remix, Nom De Strip Remix, Muffler Remix, Bais Haus Remix, and “Activate” remixes by Whiiite Remix, Dan Oh Remix, and AudioFun on September 6th  via iTunes and everywhere else on September 20th. You can download the single Black Flags as a free MP3 HERE.

The band’s latest single is drawn from the band’s new album Is This Hyperreal? out now via Dim Mak. Produced, mixed, recorded by Alec Empire, Nic Endo and new ATR member CX Kidtronik (Saul Williams / Nine Inch Nails), Is This Hyperreal? was recorded at the Hellish Vortex Studio in Berlin.
In addition to the band’s “Blood In My Eyes” video HERE , Atari Teenage Riot is also asking their fans to participate in the video for the band’s upcoming single “Black Flags”, which will be released on September 6th. You can hear “Black Flags” and read the lyrics HERE. They are calling their fans and others who support song’s ideals to make a video statement in front of a black flag, or any black surface to be included in the band’s final video. “Black Flags.” Fans are also invited to incorporate “Corpsing” into their video. Drawn from an idea the band had while “planking” at a Southern European airport, “Corpsing” is the act of laying down in a public location, covered in a black flag to represent those that have died as result of corporate greed. The band invites anyone to film themselves lip-synching to the “Black Flags” lyrics in front of a black flag or corpsing and send in their video to be included in the “Black Flags” video. All entries should be submitted to Read the band’s full concept for the video HERE

“It’s a successful, Herculean project that completely steamrolls any music in its wake.” 
– MTV Iggy

“As evidenced from the very beginning, ATR haven’t slowed down or cleaned up their act in the 12 years between albums. Instead, Is This Hyperreal? sees them picking up right where they left off with banging electro beats, distorted synths and shouted political lyrics.”

Atari Teenage Riot Reignites with Album on Dim Mak

 Activate!and “Blood In My EyesDownload/Stream

Is This Hyperreal

Release Date June 7th on all DSP, June 21st physical release on Dim Mak
Is This Hyperreal? Includes Singles “

Is This Hyperreal?, Atari Teenage Riot’s first album released through LA future stomp label Dim Mak, is an acetylene laced documentation of ATR’s re-ignition after an eleven year silence. Produced, mixed, recorded with Alec Empire, Nic Endo and new ATR member CX Kidtronik (Saul Williams / Nine Inch Nails), ATR’s fourth studio release was made at the Hellish Vortex studio in Berlin.
A cultural cold war divided upon class lines, a new age of surveillance, heroes’ incarcerated in the worst conditions possible for speaking out against the military complex, a corrupt press core owned by multi-national corporations and raised to repeat sound bytes. This is the post-cyberpunk world on the brink of collapse Atari Teenage Riot’s Is This Hyperreal? is born into. Every track is an iridescent explosion of nervous energy requesting your attendance in Atari Teenage Riot’scampaign party of education and awareness. Having influenced a generation of M.I.A., Crystal Castles, Le Tigre, Sleigh Bells, and Pendulum, Atari Teenage Riot is a welcome shot in the arm of the music industry.
“Activate!” starts the album with Atari Teenage Riot’s most concise statement of intent yet. On a backing of explosive 1991 hardcore jungle synths, super collider bass kicks, and guitar shrapnel Alec, Nic, and Kidtronik spurn us into a campaign of equality, activation, and eradication of ignorance.
In “Blood In My Eyes” Alec Empire merges his chiptunes style first shown in 1999’s Nintendo Teenage Robots album with the sound of Crass exploding out of the trunk two cars over. Contained within Nic’s first lead vocal in Atari Teenage Riot tells a tale of enslavement and revenge for all of the women lost within our global human trafficking problem. “Blood In My Eyes” is a riveting electronic punk rock diatribe, paying homage to the feminine retributive subtexts espoused by cult films like ‘Kill Bill’ and heavily censored French art-house offering, ‘Baise-Moi.’ “Black Flags” is a low slung, subwoofer punching, anthem announcing Atari Teenage Riot’s support of Anonymous’ grassroots human rights campaign.
We’re allowed a brief respite to catch our breath during “Is This Hyperreal?”. The album’s title track slow cooks with seething analog synths reminiscent of Vangelis’ score for Blade Runner, symphonic percussion and a gurgling acid line are the soundtrack to the birth of a cyborg. “Codebeaker”is a stomping electro rockabilly stormer. Rubbery basslines command your posterior to action; sawtooth guitars swarm your head as Alec and Kidtronik lead us onto wall street to ask the question of “What went wrong?” Dim Mak label boss Steve Aoki’s vocals add an LA Hardcore vibe to give it that much more of a brutal punch.
“Shadow Identity” is Nic’s second lead vocal of the album and the most unexpected hook. On top of a New Order bassline and what sounds like a drum line made performed by an obsolete automotive assembly line Nic interweaves a narrative of blood diamonds, global trade and consumer awareness. “Re-arrange Your Synapses” is a new gabber punk classic. The 909 drum machine speeds up to a blurred fever pitch as Alec and Nic dive bomb verses painting a near future world of post net neutrality legislation where access to money and corporations control the public’s access to information on the internet.
Atari Teenage Riot saves their most straightforward electro romp for “Digital Decay”. Showcasing a thick gurgling bassline, razor taunt snares and Nic  as a floating artificial intelligence prophet. “Digital Decay” would fit perfectly into one of Aoki’s legendary DJ sets. “The Only Slight Glimmer of Hope” is dripping with uplifting brash, sing-along, sass-bag vocals and deep driving modular synth work. “The Only Slight Glimmer of Hope” is Atari Teenage Riot’s legendary effortless synthesis of Crass, Throbbing Gristle, and Kraftwerk.
“The Collapse of History” immediately makes itself known as the most unexpected and welcome Atari Teenage Riot song ever. Throwing listeners for a complete curveball, Alec flexes his 90s hardcore influence by intertwining stadium sized jungle breakbeats with a national anthem. Nic transforms herself into a pop dance diva and brings her sassiest vocal performance of the album. The mind glue chorus celebrating the overthrow of corrupt institutions hits your like warm sunlight after an all night rave. As ATR ends the album “Humanity will win in the end.”

Atari Teenage Riot Signs to Dim Mak

Set to Tour North America This Fall

Releasing Free Mp3 + Video of “Activate!”

Founded in Berlin in 1992 as a riposte to their nation’s increasingly neo-nazi influenced techno scene, the reformed Atari Teenage Riot are a reminder of how pop can scare the bejesus out of the thick and the bigoted when it’s done fast, smart and furious as fuck.” 

It’s rare in a world now ruled by Miley Cyrus and Justin 

Bieber to hear music that is so angry with itself and with everything else around it. 

But ATR’s overwhelming energy is difficult to deny, and difficult not to admire — preferably 

from a safe distance.” 
– Spin Magazine

After reuniting this past Spring, Alec Empire and Nic Endo (aka Atari Teenage Riot) signed on to Dim Mak. This time they’re joined by ATR newcomer (and Kanye West / Nine Inch Nails collaborator) MC CX Kidtronik. They are a natural fit with Dim Mak, as label-head Steve Aoki is known for his hard electro sound and has roots in the hardcore scene.  

Check out “Activate!”, download here.

Atari Teenage Riot is known for their intense live show, and it’s been reinvigorated by the reunion. Check out the cinematic montage of furious industrial, rave-rock chaos in the video for “Activate!”, directed by Zan Lyons, here. Watch for the crowd’s reaction as they invade the stage during ATR’s
reunion at Fusion 2010, here. Want to be part of the action? Atari Teenage Riot will be heading on tour throughout North America this fall with Autoerotique. For dates and cities, please see below.

 Atari Teenage Riot was the first to blend noise with electronic, usually performaing music that was too offensive or loud for the mainstream. Their lyrics were intensely politcal, leading to their albums being censored in Germany throughout their career. In the late 90s Atari Teenage Riot emerged out of the electronica genre, to subvert all rules of rock and techno music. The original conception was Alec Empire’s and when joined by Hanin Elias, Nic Endo and Carl Crack on stage, the mixed race, mixed sex image of the band provoked people before they even heard the music.
