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.
