Atreyu to Tour This Fall
Tue, 24 Aug 2010 16:09:01
Fresh off their triumphant run headlining the second stage of this year's Mayhem Festival, Orange County melodic metallers Atreyu have announced that they'll headline their own "Congregation of the Damned" tour beginning October 20 at the House of Blues in Anaheim, CA. The tour, which is being sponsored in part by Monster Energy Drink, will see Atreyu topping a bill that features heavy hitters Bless The Fall, Chiodos, Architects (UK) and Endless Hallway. The kids will come out at night for this show, for sure.
After months of international main stage festival performances including Download, Grasspop, among others, the "Congregation of the Damned" Tour gives fans a chance to experience Atreyu in an intimate club setting instead of on another massive stage, distant from fans. "It's gonna be a blast," said frontman Alex Varkatzas in a statement. "We're looking forward to hitting the road with some of our favorite bands and breaking out a few surprises from our catalog." Added drummer/vocalist Brandon Saller, "We're ecstatic to be headlining again and to have the opportunity to give the fans a full-blown Atreyu show. We're looking forward to playing songs from the new album, as well as the classics and some rare gems that have been gathering dust. Get ready to party."
While they await the tour's launch, fans can whet their appetite for an Atreyu live show with "Gallows," a raw, in-your-face music video featuring the band in action. The clip can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKAwap4Y8Qc.
After the "Congregation of the Damned" tour, Atreyu will head overseas for a string of UK dates with Bullet For My Valentine and Bring Me The Horizon beginning December 6.
