The Queers
The Queers
We've been playing music and touring all over the world for almost 30 years now. We released a few records for Lookout! Records in the early 90s and then had a terrible stint with Hopeless in the late 90s. I don't think they wanna see us and we definitely don't wanna see them. Then we released one more record with Lookout! but afterwards switched to our favorite record label we've ever had, Asian Man Records. All this while touring a bunch. We'll see you soon, we're The Queers.

The Ataris
The Ataris are four friends creating words and music in the basements and dive bars of the world, while young souls pile into the microphone and spill beer into our effects pedals.

Honest stories and organic sounds, chock full of heart, sincerity and beautiful mistakes. Played loud and recorded to analog tape.

Sixteen years of traveling the world, several broken down vans and five full length studio albums. The Ataris album "So Long, Astoria" included the tracks "In This Diary" and "The Saddest Song" and sold upwards of 850,000 copies earning the band it's first gold record.

The Ataris' singer/songwriter Kristopher Roe released his first full length solo acoustic album "Hang Your Head in Hope" in November 2011.

All songs were recorded in one take, no edits, no overdubs, using vintage 1940's ribbon microphones and a 1948 Gibson J-45 guitar.
The album contains familiar tracks stripped down as well as a several brand new songs which will later appear on The Ataris forthcoming
album "The Graveyard of the Atlantic" in actual full band arrangements.

"Hang Your Head in Hope" is available FREE of charge only from The Ataris' Bandcamp page. http://theataris.bandcamp.com/ Donations are welcome and very much appreciated.

The Ataris are currently finishing up vocals for their new album "The Graveyard of the Atlantic" Two brand new tracks from the album are available also available exclusively on our Bandcamp page. The album will be released on the Gainesville, Florida label Paper + Plastick. An actual release date will be announced here once the vocals have been completed and the remaining songs are mixed.

That is ALL.

Thank you. See you all on tour.
