Get yours! ATARI TEENAGE RIOT New Free Download Single ‘Black Flags’ (Feat. Boots Riley), which is a different version from the one featured on the album, Released 3rd Oct 2011 on Digital Hardcore Recordings and check their new video. Atari Teenage Riot – Black Flags (feat. Boots Riley) by Alec Empire/ ATR
Alec Empire explains: “So we came up with this concept for the Black Flags video and it was pretty rad, but when members of the legendary hacker group Anonymous got in touch because they wanted to participate, the whole thing went from DIY punkrock to super awesome.
Some snobbish journalists didn’t understand what we were talking about on the new album. Since the London riots and San Fransisco BART operation, it’s different.
The video contains only footage that fans, friends and Anonymous send us. People did the black flag corpsing/Silent protesting in the weirdest places. In front of nuclear powerplants, in shopping malls, in places that are not allowed for the public.
This is the first edit, this video will never be finished really. We keep adding more clips from fans. Get involved! ”
Atari Teenage Riot’s ‘Black Flags’ package will be released with remixes by Tony Senghore, Nom De Strip, Dan Oh, Taku Takahashi, Whiiite and many more on October 3rd.
The latest single accompanies the band’s first new album in a decade, ‘Is This Hyperreal?’ out now via Digital Hardcore Recordings. Produced, mixed and 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.
Additionally, the band will return from their US tour and go straight into a series of European shows this autumn to coincide with the single’s release.
