Atreyu plot fall time 20th-anniversary tour

It’s going to be 20 years since Atreyu’s inception, and now the group is ready to celebrate the only way they know how to; on the road with their fans. On Monday (Aug. 19), the California-founded band announced plans to embark on a fall time tour to celebrate their “China” anniversary.

The upcoming trek will find the group performing at venues across the United States throughout October and November. The tour will include stops in Dallas, Louisville, Pittsburgh, New Haven, Niagara Fall, St. Louis, Salt Lake City, Milwaukee, Colorado Springs, and more.

The 26-stop excursion begins on Oct. 20 at the Rialto Theatre in Tucson and concludes a month later on Nov. 20 at the Majestic Ventura Theater in Ventura, California. Right before the tour kicks off, Atreyu will hit the stage at Las Vegas’ Las Rageous Festival.

According to a press release, the setlist for the newly-announced shows will be chosen by the fans, not the band.

“What better way to celebrate than with the reason we are all here…YOU. So here’s how it goes. 20 years. 20 songs. Chosen by YOU…the fans,” drummer Brandon Saller said.

Singer Alex Varkatzas mirrors Saller: “It’s been a long, rewarding road and we are not slowing down anytime soon. We would like the help of our friends and supporters in picking the set they will see on this upcoming coming run with Whitechapel. We owe so much to the wonderful people who support and connect with us. We are very excited for these shows.”

Whitechapel, He Is Legend, Tempting Fate, and Santa Cruz will open for Atreyu throughout the tour.

More information about the trek, including how to select your favorite tunes will be available at a later date.

Tickets for the upcoming show go on sale this Friday, Aug. 23, at 10 a.m. local time.

“Customer satisfaction significantly contributes to the social and economic benefits Las Rageous has generated for the City of Las Vegas.”

In addition to the rocking lineup, the event will also feature several new onsite activities like the Bud Light Rock & Refuel Culinary Experience featuring a wide array of dining options and an onsite wedding experience for those feeling a little romantic.

Atreyu announces tenth year anniversary tour for ‘A Death-Grip on Yesterday’

I also feel it’s one of our most natural records as well. Lyrically, I got to run free and it felt great. We are pleased to play it in its entirety and give each song its due!”

New Atreyu Music Video to Debut on Friday

image

It’s been several months since we’ve heard anything from Atreyu, but don’t worry, it looks like the California group are going to make sure that we don’t forget them. But then again, how could we forget them when their reunion and announcement of a new record had us playing The Curse and Suicide Notes and Butterfly Kisses on a week’s long loop?

Over the past couple of days, the band, as a whole and individually, have taken to Instagram to posted short clips of what appears to be some scenes from their upcoming music video. The music video will be for the album’s title track “Long Live” which will debut on Friday, July 17.

Check out some of the scenes from the music video below.

Last year, Atreyu announced their reunion and that they had begun to work on new music. Then, in April, they confirmed the release of their sixth studio album, Long Live, which will hit stores on Sept. 18 through Search and Destroy Records.

Atreyu Announce New Album, ‘Long Live’

image

After revealing plans to release a new album in 2015, Atreyu have officially confirmed the name of the new record as well as the release date, well at least release month.

The band’s upcoming sixth studio album will be titled Long Live and is set to be released this September through their new record label, Search and Destroy Records, who they signed with back in November.

The California group revealed the new album information on Facebook when they posted an image which featured their name, the record’s title, and the words “new album September 2015.”

Exciting stuff.

The new album, according to frontman Alex Varkatzas will go back to their roots and will sound more like The Curse than anything else.

“Absolutely no melodic vocals on my end. AMEN! Happy to get back to my roots and still bring in some new tricks. My brothers and I have made our best record yet. Can’t wait to share it with you all,” wrote Varkatzas on Facebook back in February.

Apparently, the sentiments ring true throughout the band because even drummer Brandon Saller said the same during an interview.

“I think going away for a while and not being in this band and coming back and being able to think about what you love most about the band… I mean, those were conversations that we had… Like, what do we love most? What’s our strong suit? What do we feel most comfortable doing? ‘Cause that’s what we wanna do, ’cause that’s the most fun,” said Saller during an interview with Australian publication, Music Feeds earlier this year during Soundwave 2015.

“So I think, for him [Varkatzas], he was, like, ‘I just wanna f—ing come out and rip people’s heads off,’” he continued.

“So it was, like, ‘All right. Cool. You don’t wanna sing? You don’t sing. That’s how we started. I’ll sing. And you just f—ing go nuts.’ And everyone’s stoked on it. And he’s doing different s–t. He’s doing a lot of different stuff on the new record — different sh-t he’s never done before. But it’s brutal. It’s f—ing awesome.”

Atreyu’s last album, before their hiatus, was 2009’s Congregation of the Damned.

Earlier this month, they released their first ever Record Store Day contribution; a 7″ EP which featured their newest tracks, “So Others May Live” and “When the Day is Done.”
