Atari Teenage Riot Lands Euro Nine Inch Nails Dates
German techno crew Atari Teenage Riot, who recently wrapped a short headlining
European tour in support of their latest album 60 Second Wipeout, has been tapped as the
opening act on nine upcoming Nine Inch Nails dates in Europe, beginning Nov. 14 in
But it's unclear whether the controversial group's MC, Carl Crack, who missed all of the
band's recent tour, will be able to make these new dates, either.
Crack (real name Carl Bohm) is currently fighting efforts by German authorities to have him
incarcerated or institutionalized, following an incident last month at an airport in Frankfurt,
Germany when he attempted to disembark from a plane through the emergency hatch
while it was racing down the runway for takeoff.
He then reportedly assaulted the flight attendant who tried to stop him, forcing the pilot
to abort takeoff and return the plane to the gate, at which point Crack and his bandmates
were shown the way off at the proper exit. No charges have yet been filed. Band leader
Alec Empire released a statement this week which reads, in part, "Carl has been suffering
from a strong psychosis. It has happened a few times... most of the time it results from
the consumption of marijuana, or an extreme feeling of euphoria that causes a chemical
reaction in his brain and leads to a change of personality which shares many of the
symptoms of schizophrenia."
