The Ataris is considered to be one of the several radio friendly US pop punk bands ever created since the 90s.
The Ataris has been successful in releasing several full length albums that are pop punk. Taking more inspiration from "mainstream alternative acts" than the punk people he has worked with, he was liked by "Joe Escalante" in 1997.
Furthermore, he was impressed by his demo, Joe asked him to form a band and sign a contract with his label known as Kung Fu Records. He moved to California to look for band mates, and later on he met Pena, Davenport, and Plourde. Knapp replaced Plourde after some time.
This newly formed tandem released the band’s very first record, “Anywhere But Here” for Kung Fu and was noticed by Fat Mike from another label. Knowing the chance to move to a much better and stronger label, the group left Kung Fu for Fat Wreck.
They readily issued an EP called “Look Forward to Failure”, produced by different "members of the Descendents".
It was in 1999 when the group released their next full length album, “Blue Skies”, “Broken Hearts” and several others followed. After this successful release, they moved around cities and countries with blink 182, MxPx, and Homegrown before finally issuing “Let It Burn” in the year 2000.
A year after, it was followed by the release of “End Is Forever”. The Ataris was able to make a huge leap of faith trying now the majors with 2003’s So Long, Astoria on Columbia. In this album, they launched a new guitarist, Collura. It really did great, especially the songs like “The Boys of Summer” and “In This Diary”. Both were successful on MTVs and rock charts.
In 2004, Live at the Metro was released. After which, they took a short break.
After spending months completing their next album, the group chose to leave Columbia in 2006. The album’s release was delayed, but the group pressed on label less with different tour events in South America.
There were also line up changes, and by this time, the group now has 7 members, which includes Roe, Collura, Carabello, Cooke, Hoag, Hansen, and Chikeles.
Soon after, they have established their very own label called Isola Recordings, and with a good partnership with Sanctuary finally released Welcome the Night, a more rock based album in 2007.
A lot more is expected from this band. More hard rock, pop, and fun music for everyone to love and enjoy!
