After ATR split, Alec Empire kept on with his meteoric career as a solo artist, turning into one of the most versatile and renowned producers and creators of electronic music.
Around 2008, activists such as Anonymous or Wikileaks reclaimed ATR tracks as the soundtrack of the hacker movement that was born globally. Quite a right choice, taking into account that ATR’s lyrics in the nineties already talked about a dystopian future, with governments and corporations forming an alliance to create a society controlled through the use of technology.
In 2010 Atari Teenage Riot returns led by Alec Empire, more relevant than ever, with a growing base of young fans that add up to their die-hard followers. Atari Teenage Riot represents a failure in the system. Contemporary protest music for the Internet age, with one of the most powerful live shows of modern electronica.
