The Ataris are pleased to announce a new six song E.P.
“October in This Railroad Earth”

Available now only here on our Bandcamp page.

Recorded at Flying Blanket in Mesa, Arizona.
(The same studio where “All Souls Day” and the rest of “The Graveyard of The Atlantic” sessions have been recorded.)

These are a few ideas that sort of fell to the wayside over the years.
Ones that no one has ever heard before but we felt really should see the light of day.
So we got this idea, Why not go in to Flying Blanket where we’ve been recording the new album and record some of these old song ideas using the same solid sounding vintage tones and the warmth of analog tape.
All of the basic tracks were recorded live in one take with minimal overdubs.
Recorded in two days and mixed in two more.
It was a lot of fun! This is the end result.

Most of the songs were written in the early 90's and actually pre-date The Ataris first album. A few were songs from the first band Kris played in long before The Ataris even existed.
"Beauty, Eh" is a cover of one of the songs those guys wrote.
The singer Chris Morgan also wrote some lyrics to the first song on this EP. called "Slacker Rock"
We were just a local band and unfortunately never got to record any of those songs.
I'm happy you guys get to at least hear a few of those songs in some form or another as that was a really important time for me,
making music for the first time in my life, with some very talented friends that I will always hold dear to my heart.

A second E.P. with an entirely different batch of songs
and super limited vinyl pressing of this release will follow at a later date.
For now we wanted to give you a nice surprise of something new to listen to.
