Posted by PP on 30/11/06

Sanctuary Records has signed pop punk heroes The Ataris. I've attached the press release below, but it basically just says that the new album "Welcome The Night" will be released in February (6th to be precise).




Sanctuary Records Group North America is pleased to announce the release of The Ataris’ new CD on Sanctuary/Isola Recordings, the band’s own imprint. The Ataris, whose last CD, SO LONG ASTORIA, sold over 1 million copies worldwide and spawned two top-ten hit singles, will release WELCOME THE NIGHT in February, 2007. The band’s amazing first single, “Not Capable of Love” is going to radio mid November.

Says Executive VP and GM Bob Cahill, “I can’t wait for the industry and fans to hear this CD. The Ataris have delivered an album that has real depth, representing huge artistic growth while retaining the intensity and honesty that has earned them legions of fans worldwide. It also contains several massive hits, which Sanctuary intends to deliver in kind. I look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with the band.”

Comments The Ataris’ Manager Darren Lewis, “The Ataris are excited to establish their own label and to be working with a true artist-oriented, independent-minded company like Sanctuary Records Group. We see arrangements like this as the future of the music business and we are glad to be embracing that future with a forward-thinking company like Sanctuary.”

WELCOME THE NIGHT is The Ataris 5th release and first on Sanctuary/Isola Recordings. The Ataris are Kristopher Roe - Guitar, Vocals, Percussion ; John Collura - Guitar, Pianos; Paul Carabello - Guitar, Percussion, Vocals; Sean Hansen - Bass, Vocals; Shane Chikeles - Drums, Percussion; Angus Cooke - Cello and Bob Hoag - Piano, Fender Rhodes, Mellotron, Percussion, Vocals.
