CX Kidtronik joins Atari Teenage Riot

If you're really into punk and digital hardcore, then check the tour dates

Belated congrats to CX Kidtronik (above left) who recently joined a reunited Atari Teenage Riot!

According to a recent press release:

Atari Teenage Riot was the first to blend noise with electronic, usually performaing music that was too offensive or loud for the mainstream. Their lyrics were intensely politcal, leading to their albums being censored in Germany throughout their career. In the late 90s Atari Teenage Riot emerged out of the electronica genre, to subvert all rules of rock and techno music. The original conception was Alec Empire’s and when joined by Hanin Elias, Nic Endo and Carl Crack on stage, the mixed race, mixed sex image of the band provoked people before they even heard the music.

They broke up in 2000, but reunited this spring and are on tour, much to the joy of fans of their brand of punk/digital hardcore.

CX wrote: “i’m on tour now in Europe, and the shows are brutal, and the music very fast and loud- if you didn’t know.   This is also by far the most similar music to my old early 90′s  Atlanta group  K.I.N , of which Saul Williams was a dancer for.”
