“Few bands have ever detonated as powerfully in the underground as Atari Teenage Riot. They were a band that sounded the way you always wanted The Prodigy to sound. A band akin to Black Flag if that outfit had existed in an age where every home had a computer.”
NME New Musical Express
Of all the bands that sold a million records in the 1990’s Atari Teenage Riot’s reformation in 2010 beckoned the critic’s cutting condemnation. A triumphant sellout concert in front of nigh on a thousand rabid fans stopped them in their tracks and instead the blogs were covered with reports of an electrifying return.
Asked how they managed such a startling reinvention Alec Empire described it as a ‘software’ update, a dramatic change of view drawing from the core of ATR’s anger in the 90’s. Two world tours and a US record deal with Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak label brought back old fans and drew new ones into the fold.
