Video: The Ataris debut “Graveyard of the Atlantic”

Long-standing pop punk band The Ataris have debuted the new material from their upcoming new album Graveyard of the Atlantic.

An acoustic version of the title track can be heard in the video of Kris Roe performing below, the first sample from the follow-up to the commercially disappointing (but quality… at least we thought so) album Welcome the Night.

Roe has promised a return to their upbeat, catchy nature of their earlier material on Graveyard of the Atlantic, stating;

I feel that today where I am at is sort of coming around full circle and just having fun again and being newly inspired by the art that made me discover music in the first place.”

No solid release date has been announced as of yet with only a vague ‘late 2010 – early 2011’ time frame given. The Ataris first burst onto the underground pop punk scene in 1999 with their sophomore album, Blue Skies, Broken Hearts… Next 12 Exits which spurned the hit single “San Dimas High School Football Rules.” Their mainstream breakthrough came in 2003 with the album So Long, Astoria.

The Ataris will be touring Australia early next year as part of the Soundwave Festival.

Rejoice! Hallelujah! We don’t have to go to Soundwave! The two best bands of the festival have just announced a sidewave scheduled to take place March 2nd, 2011 at The Palace (in Melbourne).

Both acts were part of the first announcement of next year’s Soundwave Festival touring across Australia alongside Iron Maiden, Queens of the Stone Age, 30 Seconds to Mars, New Found Glory and much, much more.

Social Distortion were slated to appear at previous Soundwave events but cancelled due to them being Social Distortion (they like cancelling things). However, they have confirmed their appearance and announced on their Facebook that the side show will indeed go ahead. The band are scheduled to release their much anticipated new album, Hard Times And Nursery Rhymesin November.
