The Ataris have announced plans to begin demoing for their next full length at The Gallows Recording Studio. The studio s owned and operated by Chris and Bryan from The Widow Jenkins(ex Emery/Brazil), and is based in Muncie, IN. The band plans to begin the formal recording process later this summer and are aiming for an early 2009 release.

Interestingly, the band appears to be self-funding the endeavour and frontman Kris Roe has launched an auction to help raise money. Among the items set for auction are Radiohead Tickets,guitar effects pedals and Kris' entire 1500-CD strong CD collection. The auction is here.

The band also recently promised that the new album would see return to their Blue Skies, Broken Hearts - Next 12 Exits…/End is Forever-era sound. Last year, they released Welcome the Night.
