Atari Teenage Riot L-R: Rowdy Superstar, Nic Endo, Alec Empire

Alec Empire calls the single “an anthem for our generation”

Atari Teenage Riot premiered their new video for “Collapse of History”, their new single on NME. The dramatic and energetic video was shot in a mental institution in the Parisian suburbs. This track is part of the first installment of the two-part Collapse of History EP, with the second to follow May 1st via Dim Mak Records.

Atari Teenage Riot sets out on an international tour with new band member Rowdy Superstar, beginning mid April that will run through Mexico, United States, South America and Europe. ATR will also play both weekends at Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival and travel to New York in between the dates (see tour dates below).

Alec Empire: “Our new single is called “Collapse of History”! It is an anthem for our generation, about information overload in the Digital Age. The track has a big war chant, which went down extremely well with festival crowds since we started playing it live. Can’t wait to perform this at Coachella!!!

It’s another single that is sung by Nic Endo who takes ATR into a new direction where B52’s, L7, riot grrrl, Blondie and Deee-Lite are an inspiration. I had to do forty overdubs, because we thought it would be funny to have a little army of Alec Empire clones singing along. The biggest inspiration for this song was probably the Atari video game classic Pong.”
