Atari Teenage Riot Reboots With Riot In Japan

Atari Teenage Riot Reboots With Riot In Japan

Don't call it a comeback, they've been here for years ... Atari Teeneage Riot (who, like Sonic Youth, have a name that bears nothing on their age) are rebooting. Alec Empire calls it a software update -- Atari Teenage Riot 3.0. They've just "relaunched" with a new album that arrived yesterday. It's called Riot In Japan, and it's a live album. Check out in the SoundCloud player above.

It reminds of how experimental the harder edge of industrial was in the 90's ... the world had just begun to go digital, the economy was exploding in a good way, technology was exploding, the dawn of a new millenium was upon us. And everything seemed so ... limitless.

"To relive history never really works, it only leads to despair. We don't do that. We don't think long term; we decide on the spur of the moment what feels right and what doesn't just as we did when we started out. The internet has alerted a whole new generation to our back catalogue and made people equally aware of our biggest records and our rarest recordings so that when we played live, and travelled to places we'd never been to before, the fans stormed the stage, screaming along to our songs, dancing like crazy...and I knew we never really had even properly released anything in some of these countries," said Alec Empire.
