Ataris to tour UK?

By paul

Santa Barbara’s favourite sons The Ataris have announced plans for a US and then European tour later this year.

In a statement released to fan site www.theataris.com the band said:

“We will be doing a short headlining tour of the u.s. and canada as soon as the record is completed. Hopefully by Mid-June at the latest. We will be playing intimate sized clubs in mostly all major cities. so no need to e-mail asking where we will be playing cause’ we will be playing somewhere near you no matter where you live.

“Probably after that shortly we will be doing shows in Europe/Australia/N.Z./Japan I would asssume at least by the year’s end. If all goes well our new record will be out somwhere around sept./early oct. but that is a very rough guesstimate at this point.

“Around that time we will obviously be hitting the u.s. and canada again for a much longer and more detailed tour.

“-keep your ears opened as things always do change. -take care, kris, johnny, mike and chris. ”

The site also suggests that the release of …Anywhere But Here II is going to be May 28, 2002. The original February release date was postponed due to complications involving the new cover and liner notes.

Also, The Ataris will be on a DVD/VHS that Kung Fu Records will be releasing February 19, 2002 entitled “Fear Of A Punk Planet” Vol. 1. The Ataris can be seen in Episode 2, “Bouncing Souls To The Rescue,” prefroming both “Losing Streak” and “San Dimas High School Football Rules.”
