Ataris Taking Their 2600s And Friends Sugarcult On The Road

California punk rockers The Ataris have completed the recording of their debut album for Columbia Records and are planning to bring the new songs live to a theater near you. Although the album So Long, Astoria won't be released until next March, The Ataris are taking the new songs (as well as the old ones) out on the road to test them out and give their fans a sneak peek into the new record. Joining the Santa Barbara quartet on tour are close friends Sugarcult, as well as Autopilot Off and Rufio. The tour kicks off on November 4 in Salt Lake City and comes to a crashing halt in the City By The Bay on December 13.
