Following last year’s Is This Hyperreal? album, Atari Teenage Riot are back with the live album Riot In Japan. Well, whenever the mind-bending trio drop their digital hardcore, there’s something like a riot going on: remember their 2010 Fusion appearance? Besides this epic new album, ATR also gave the very interesting announcement that the London raised singer/rapper and producer Rowdy Supers*r has just been chosen as the new member of Atari Teenage Riot and will join the band during their upcoming world tour. Have a listen to the full LP, which will be out at the end of this week via Digital Hardcore Recordings/Dim Mak.

Atari Teenage Riot are back with a new album, their first since 1999’s 60 Second Wipeout and by the way things look, their rebellious attitude has not changed at all. Frontman Alec Empire calls Is This Hyperreal? "the definite [sic] protest album for the Google age."
Since their formation in 1992 the Berlin-based electronic punks have been considered to be both agitators (amongst the left) and musical innovators. On Is This Hyperreal? ATR explore topics such as digital decay, Wikileaks, codebreaking, human trafficking, class war and the like. You can get take a listen to the first single ‘Blood In My Eyes’ at ATR’s website.
The band’s lineup includes a new MC, CX KiDTRONiK, Empire himself and longtime member Nic Endo. Is This Hyperreal? will be released via Digital Hardcore Recordings on June 20th.
