The Ataris posted an update about their ever delayed album in the comments section of their most recent Facebook post:
Have around 20 songs recorded including the four posted. That means all the music for those 20 are completely finished. Vocals finished for around six of those. Then as of the last year or so since losing my father and some other things that have inspired me I have written a large handful of additional songs. (Roughly 15 or so more) I plan to record some of those and finish vocals to some of the best of the first batch. That leaves a lot of good B-sides and tracks leftover for 7" vinyl releases and to carry a few over into the future. Goal is to do some recording as...

The Ataris have cancelled their Australian tour dates. The booking agent posted a message on the band's Facebook page.
I don't particularly feel comfortable speaking for the band right now, but someones gotta say something. Point blank. The Ataris will not be performing on any dates of the Hits & Pits Festival 2.0 in Australia. I realize the rumors will start to swirl so here are the simple facts. Fact #1. It's very known amongst Ataris fans that Kristopher Roe of The Ataris has an extreme fear of flying. Fact #2. On Sunday night, his original flight out of LAX had engine failure and needed to return to LAX- everyone was safe. Fact #3. I have three members of The Ataris that are in...

Kris Roe of The Ataris recently discussed his band's upcoming record, Graveyard of the Atlantic.
From the InterviewBut for the album, in May/June I am going back into the studio to finish the vocals for the seven remaining songs. Currently all the music is done. We have a lot of songs recorded and I think that we have a lot of really good songs and I think we have a lot of leftover songs that will be for a few 7 inches and bonus tracks for the future. Our goal is to get the record out this summer with Paper + Plastick Records.

The Ataris will be releasing a compilation of old unreleased tracks on December 30th.
Message from KrisIn light of our upcoming tour with The Queers... For the first time ever, you will be able to download The Ataris original 4-Track demos! These are the actual demos that I recorded in my bedroom from around age 13 to age 18. The actual demos that were passed on to The Vandals when they played alongside The Queers in Cincinnati at Bogart's in 1996. The same demos that led them to sign The Ataris to their label soon thereafter. None of these recordings have ever been released to the public before now! Many of the songs would later shape The Ataris albums "Anywhere But Here" and...
