Alec Empire and co will release their first album in 11 years this June.
Atari Teenage Riot will release a new album this June called Is This Hyperreal?
It's been 11 years since the electronic punk outfit released their last LP, 60 Second Wipeout, and from the looks of things they haven't changed too much in the meantime; the upcoming album promises to be just as noisy and politically charged as anything they've put out to date. "It is the definite protest album for the Google age," says frontman Alec Empire. "Musically we have taken ATR's signature sound way into the future. The beats have more punch, the basslines are heavier and the songs possess another level of depth." Lyrically, the album explores topics such as human trafficking, class war, Wikileaks and the like. Aside from Empire, ATR's current lineup includes longtime member Nic Endo and a new MC, CX KiDTRONiK.
