:News: Atari Teenage Riot Announces US Tour Dates
The highly political, anti-fascist and anti-Nazi digital hardcore outfit has announced US Tour dates in support of their album Is this Hyperreal?.
Currently made up of Alec Empire, Nico Endo and CX KiDTRONiK and producing music that refuses to be neatly packaged into a specific genre, ATRÂ sound was characterised by the use of breakbeats, many sampled from funk and rap, but replayed at more than twice their original speeds, heavy guitar riffs, and the shouting of politically-driven lyrics and slogans by the band members.Â While only releasing three albums during the band’s original association from 1995-1999, ATR is considered one of the most influential bands of the techno scene.Â
The group is planing eight shows in the United States, starting on September 4, 2011 in Seattle and wrapping on September 28, 2011 in Chicago.
