Show Preview - Atari Teenage Riot - 9.24.11 - Rex Theater - Concert Preview


The Atari Teenage Riot will be making a stop in Pittsburgh this Saturday, 9.24. They are touring behind their latest release, Is This Hperreal? From their press: 


Atari Teenage Riot is pleased to release their latest video “Blood In My Eyes.” The song and it’s provocative video offer a stark look at the issue of human trafficking. 





The band’s latest single is drawn from the band’s new album Is This Hyperreal? out now via Dim Mak. Produced, mixed, recorded by Alec Empire, Nic Endo and new ATR member CX Kidtronik (Saul Williams / Nine Inch Nails), Is This Hyperreal? was recorded at the Hellish Vortex Studio in Berlin. In addition to the band’s “Blood In My Eyes” video, Atari Teenage Riot is also asking their fans to participate in the video for the band’s upcoming single "Black Flags", which will be released on September 6th. You can hear “Black Flags”.


 Atari Teenage Riot - Black Flags (feat. Boots Riley) by Alec Empire/ ATR  Fans are also invited to incorporate “Corpsing” into their video. Drawn from an idea the band had while “planking” at a Southern European airport, “Corpsing” is the act of laying down in a public location, covered in a black flag to represent those that have died as result of corporate greed. The band invites anyone to film themselves lip-synching to the “Black Flags” lyrics in front of a black flag or corpsing and send in their video to be included in the “Black Flags” video. All entries should be submitted toblackflags@atari-teenage-riot.net

They are calling their fans and others who support song’s ideals to make a video statement in front of a black flag, or any black surface to be included in the band’s final video. “Black Flags.” 

The show begins at 8p with doors opening at 7p. You can find tickets here.
