The Ataris

The Ataris have produced several full-length recordings of relatively cookie-cutter pop-punk. Taking more influence from mainstream alternative acts than the punk artists they tour with, the Ataris were discovered by Vandals founder Joe Escalante in early 1997, after songwriter Kris Roe met him at a Vandals concert. Impressed by his demo tape, Escalante asked Roe to put together a full band and record for his label, Kung-Fu Records. Vocalist/guitarist Roe picked up and moved to California in search of bandmates, and eventually added guitarist Marco Peña, bassist Mike Davenport, and former Lagwagon drummer Derrick Plourde. Plourde was later replaced by new drummer Chris Knapp.

The newly formed Ataris made their first record, Anywhere But Here, for Kung-Fu and soon came to the notice of Fat Wreck Chords owner Fat Mike. Realizing the opportunity to move to a stronger, better-grounded label, the Ataris willingly signed to Fat Wreck. They quickly issued an EP, Look Forward to Failure, produced by several members of the Descendents. Early in 1999, the band released their second full-length album, Blue Skies, Broken Hearts...Next 12 Exits. After the album's release, they toured with MxPx, blink-182, and Homegrown before issuing Let It Burn in 2000. End Is Forever followed in 2001, after which the Ataris made the leap to the majors with 2003's So Long, Astoria on Columbia. The album featured new guitarist John Collura; it sold well and tracks like "In This Diary" and the Don Henley cover "The Boys of Summer" were successful on MTV and the modern rock charts. Live at the Metro followed in February 2004, though not much else band activity occurred that year.

After spending several months recording their fifth album and Astoria follow-up, the Ataris chose to leave Columbia in early summer 2006 amid much turnover in the label's staff and rumors of an impending merger with Epic. The album's July release was consequently delayed, though the band pressed on label-less with various South American tour dates. Sonic and lineup changes had also ensued, and by this time, the band (with its new post-rock vibe) was sporting a whopping seven members: Roe, Collura, guitarist/vocalist Paul Carabello, cellist Angus Cooke, keyboardist Bob Hoag, bassist Sean Hansen, and drummer Shane Chikeles. They eventually created their own label, Isola Recordings, and through a partnership with Sanctuary finally issued Welcome the Night, a darker, more rock-based effort, in February 2007. ~ David Cornelius, Rovi

So Long, Astoria was their best and peek album...
Connections are more Dangerous than Lies=amazing . Plus, Kris is a pretty cool guy, if you ever meet him in person. The guys he's touring/reco r d i n g with now are pretty cool too.
They're ok, but not amazing.
If you're not in love, stay where you are. =>

I agree, this was one of my favorite bands until "So Long Astoria." It all went downhill after that. They used to have some songs with hilarious lyrics, but that all changed with Astoria. Sad thing too, they were good.
definately NOT don henley, but not too bad
The Ataris were my favorite band... before they signed to Columbia and released So Long, Astoria. That album and everything after it SUCKS. Why wouldn't you guys offer their good albums? I still listen to them.. even though they dissapointed me with their sound change.
YOU GUYS ARE MISSING THE FIRST 3 OR 4 ALBUMS
