It appears that The Ataris have re-assembled the lineup that recorded their 2003 classic album So Long, Astoria and will be hitting the road to play the album in its entirety. Frontman Kristopher Roe will once again be joined with guitarist John Collura, bassist Mike Davenport and drummer Chris Knapp.
Kris Roe has been the longstanding original member of The Ataris through a slew of lineup changes through the years. The band’s last official release came in 2007 in the form of Welcome the Night.
It also appears that the band will be releasing their entire back catalogue of albums in an upcoming box set vinyl release. More details to come.
