Atari Teenage Riot – Live in Berlin

on August 18, 2011, 1:00pm

A Cluster 1 Premiere!

There’s something about a band being in their hometown/state that brings out the best in them. Be it Justin Vernon controlling Milwaukee, WI for a day or My Morning Jacket’s recent “Unstaged” performance in Louisville, KY, the cocktail of playing in a comfortable locale and simultaneously needing to prove yourself to friends, peers, and loved ones makes for dynamite performances from bands across all genres. That same notion goes for the recently-reunited German digital hardcore act Atari Teenage Riot.

On May 1st, a month or so before the June 7th release of their first album in 11 years Is This Hyperreal?, ATR took to the stage of Berlin, DE’s legendary techno club Tresor to perform the album in its entirety. The performance was captured from five different cameras, and Cluster 1 is premiering a sneak peek of that very performance with a four-song video medley. Comprised of “Activate!”, “The Only Slight Glimmer of Hope”, “Blood in My Eyes”, and “Collapse of History”, the 15-minute effort demonstrates what a hometown show is all about: in-your-face, sweaty jams that make the crowd go batshit. Home may or may not be where the heart is, but it’s sure where the angry, slam-dancing anarchist in all of us is at its best.

The band are on tour now, with a slew of U.S. tour dates scheduled for September.
