Ataris say ‘So Long Historia!’

The Ataris have announced that their long awaited new record is to be called ‘So Long Historia’.

Frontman Kris Roe told fansite www.theataris.com that the record, their first for Columbia Records, will be released in 2003.

This new information contradicts earlier rumours which suggested the album would be named ‘Don’t Ever Compromise What You Believe’.

Two songs already earmarked for the record are ‘The Saddest Song’ and the Don Henley cover, ‘Boys Of Summer’. This is still to be confirmed. The unreleased ‘Radio 2′ could also make an appearance.

Thanks to my buddy Jay for the info!

Paul, otherwise known as Sav, is quite possibly the only member of the Punktastic team to actually have a proper job. But don't hold that against him. He's actually a proper journalist, (a reporter for a daily northern paper) and so adds a bit of credence to the team. Except you wouldn't think that by reading his reviews. Maybe somebody should tell him that it is quality and not quantity that counts! Sav actually ended up working for Punktastic after meeting Nick at university, and the pair bonded over all things punk rock. Another guitarist, he also "writes a lot of songs about relationships, and how mine went wrong." Oh, and he loves the Ataris, if you hadn't already noticed. In his spare time he worships at the church of Kris Roe... Other fave bands include: MxPx, New Found Glory, Blink 182, Weezer, Midtown, Reel Big Fish, The Get Up Kids, Alkaline Trio, NOFX, Green Day, Deftones, Lit and Silverchair to name but a few. Hobbies include, sleeping, drinking, eating fish and supporting Grimsby Town FC. But hey, somebody has to.
