  • IS THIS HYPERREAL? CD release
    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    *CD EDITION INLCUDES ARTWORK BOOKLET (CONCERTINA 12 PAGE BOOKLET) BY NIC ENDO

    Atari Teenage Riot’s first album released through L.A. future stomp label Dim Mak,
    is an acetylene laced documentation of ATR’s re-ignition after an eleven year silence.
    Produced, mixed, recorded with Alec Empire, Nic Endo and new ATR member CX Kidtronik (Saul Williams / Nine Inch Nails)
    at ATR’s fourth studio release was made at the Hellish Vortex studio in Berlin.

    A cultural cold war divided upon class lines, a new age of surveillance,
    heroes’ incarcerated in the worst conditions possible for speaking out against the military complex,
    a corrupt press core owned by multi-national corporations and raised to repeat sound bytes.
    This is the post-cyberpunk world on the brink of collapse Atari Teenage Riot’s fourth album "Is This Hyperreal?" is born into.

    Every track is a iridescent explosion of nervous energy requesting your attendance in Atari Teenage Riot’s campaign party of education and awareness.

    Having influenced a generation of M.I.A., Crystal Castles, Le Tigre, Sleigh Bells, and Pendulum,
    Atari Teenage Riot is a welcome shot in the arm of the music industry.

Black Flags


Atari Teenage Riot
Anonymous Teenage Riot

Are you ready to testify ?
Black Flags
Are you ready to testify?
You got 2 seconds
Are you ready to testify!!! Come on!

There’s a unified axis of government
And corporate power
Lawless and unrestrained
That’s what we should talk about
Corporations exploit the power of the state
To further enhance their power
And the real criminals get away

What they call „law“ is used to restrain us ordinary citizens who are opposed to this
Your cyberattacks are „crimes“ if the government dislikes you
But are perfectly ok if they unleash them
They pursue a whistleblower while criminal politicians get away

Do you want it all?
Do you want it all?
Do you want it all?

Try to threat the system
You’ll have the full weight of law
Come crashing down upon you
So you don’t resist
Surveillance, goons
Force us to be silent
They kill the careers of journalists
So no one can resist

There’s a class war going on
And it’s the rich who are waging it!
They try to destroy anyone who is a threat to their power
Playing for keeps – they want it all!

Are you ready to testify ?
Black Flags
Are you ready to testify?
You got 2 seconds
Are you ready to testify!!! Come on!
