Album Stream: The Ataris – ‘So Long, Astoria’ (COMPLETE DEMOS)


Kris Roe may have had his problems in recent years, but he is on a roll right now with surprises, and early this morning he and the rest of The Ataris surprised fans everywhere with a very special rarities release.

Just a day after announcing plans to embark on a reunion tour, The Ataris lineup that delivered So Long, Astoria are offering something somewhat new to fans today with the name-your-price release of So Long, Astoria – Complete Demos. Available now on Bandcamp, the album features 54 tracks that are sure to be a welcomed addition to any lifelong fan’s collection.

What’s that? You think 54 tracks is an absurd amount of material to blindly commit to adding to your digital library? That’s foolish. You can name your own price for the release, so there is absolutely no reason to feel like it’s a ‘risky purchase’ by any means, and it’s essentially a one-of-a-kind chance to revisit some of the best pop punk material from the early 2000s in a way few bands ever allow their fans to experience. What’s not to like?

If all of that does not sell you, we have included a complete stream of this amazing rarities collection below.

So Long, Astoria originally hit stores in 2003 and it eventually went on to become The Ataris’ biggest commercial success. Singles like “In This Diary” helped catapult them into the mainstream, but it was their updated take on “Boys Of Summer” that put them on top of radio charts nationwide. We’ll bring you more on the band’s plans for 2014 as additional information is released.
