    I'm guessing there's no thread due to their inactivity, but the Ataris are teasing something on their Facebook for 6.16.17! Let the guessing game begin

    So Long, Astoria is still a summer jam of mine, so good timing for a thread.

    Gasp! Could they FINALLY be getting their shit together for the album??? Crossing my fingers! I'll always love the shit out of this band, even if they do postpone more than any other band I've ever known.

    if it's just a new song and they say "from our upcoming album, due out this fall" or some shit, i will be pissed! because i'm certain it will end up just getting delayed again. grrrr!

    haha yeah, for real! i'd be all over that shit. at this point, i'd bet that they have enough songs recorded to put out 3 albums by now. but the majority probably don't have lyrics/vocals because Kris said that's what's been the hold up for the last 50 years since it was announced... haha. so weird.

    Also worth talking about how good those 2 songs were they released a few years back! I'd love an album with that darker sound
     
  12. I'm definitely hoping for something about the new record.

    But if I get my expectations too high I know it'll turn out to be a ten year anniversary tour for Welcome the Night or something.

    Me too. I've recently really started to enjoy that album a lot. I used to hate it because it just didn't sound like The Ataris at all. But it's actually a great album!

    I hated it at first too. I needed to separate the band name from it and realize that the record itself is actually very good. Just not what I'm looking for from the Ataris!

  17. I'd probably go too, especially since I've never seen them headline as a full band, but new music would be far more exciting at this point.

    I'm kinda impressed they haven't changed the album title after all these years

    Ugh. I had hope we were at least getting a release date for the new album, but nope - just the same songs that have been recycled in various formats for the last seven years.

    This band will never release another album.

    Which really blows my mind, as Kris has always seemed to have unstoppable creativity, always demoing and recording and writing... it's really so weird. Maybe he's lost his inspiration. Maybe he's stuck in a shitty writers block. He did tell me once that he refuses to do a kickstarter or anything crowd funding related because he feels like that isn't genuine and DIY enough, which I get but it's still annoying to us fans who just want to support them and hear new shit.
