The Ataris Hoping To Release New Music This Year


In a recent interview with Chicagoist, Ataris frontman Kris Roe announced that the Indiana-based quartet is hoping to release a new album by the end of the year.

C: How do feel about the future of The Ataris? I know there have been a lot of setbacks and lineup changes over the years.

KRISTOPHER ROE: Honestly, on paper that stuff looks really crazy…but it doesn’t hinder us. For me The Ataris are just an ongoing thing. When we’re out on the road if somebody has a drug problem or something—which has happened before—I don’t want to be a babysitter. I just give them a very nice, “Hey, get your shit together or find another band.” Right now I feel like we have a very strong lineup, we sound great and we’re able to coexist while I play these shows with my old bandmates. After this I’ll play some acoustic shows overseas and then hopefully put an album out by the end of this year.

Also in the interview, Roe talked about the band’s current tour

The band will be on tour through March 30.
