Confirmed on their official website with a picture/video/sound of moving clouds sounding like a thunderstorm, Atreyu will release a new album in 2007. Atreyu is set to release the album with Hollywood Records, after leaving Victory Records by releasing a "The Best of.." CD. Rumors are that Atreyu probably left Victory due to unfair treatment that other bands have been getting. There have been no official band line up information, but we would guess that it is the same that made "A Death-Grip on Yesterday"
With less than a week away until the release of Atreyu's Hollywood records debut, "Lead Sails Paper Anchor," the band has released its debut video "Becoming the Bull." click here
To celebrate the April 15th release of Lead Sails Paper Anchor 2.0 CDVU, ATREYU have launched their new Falling Down video game. Fans can play the new game at UGOplayer.com. The exciting new game consists of five mini-games, one for each of the guys in the band.Alex's game slaughters "cute stuff" and leaves a bloody trail of teddy bear parts behind, Brandon takes a trip into hell in search of some ice cream, Dan tests your fast finger work, Marc goes "ghostbusting" with his bass and Travis grills up a remake of the arcade classic, Burger Time.The jam-packed game follows up the popular Becoming The Bull interactive game launched last fall.
The release of debut album ‘Suicide Notes And Butterfly Kisses' (2002) exploded ATREYU onto the world scene. Their much lauded follow-up, ‘The Curse' (2004), further illustrated they were a force to be reckoned with. When their third album ‘A Death-Grip On Yesterday' (2006) hit stores, it smashed into the US Billboard chart at #9. Several world tours, 18 million MySpace streams, and one million US album sales later, their dynamic new studio album ‘Lead Sails Paper Anchor' is set for release on August 27th. ATREYU can't wait to take it to the next level with Roadrunner. Vocalist Alex Varkatzas comments, "We're excited to be on a label with a roster we respect and with such a strong track record overseas. The ATREYU / Roadrunner combination is going to really shake things up, we feel confident about this relationship and can't wait to start crushing together!" ATREYU is completed by drummer/co-vocalist Brandon Saller, guitarists Travis Miguel and Daniel Jacobs, and Marc McKnight on bass. ‘Lead Sails Paper Anchor' is produced by Goldfinger's John Feldmann (Good Charlotte, The Used, Lostprophets) and features the incendiary guitars, battering rhythm section, and the soaring vocals with big choruses ATREYU are known for. At the same time, it sees the band broadening their horizons more than ever before. The legendary Andy Wallace (Nirvana, Slayer, Sepultura, Biffy Clyro) is behind the mixing desk. The track listing is: 1.Doomsday 2.Honor 3.Falling Down 4.Becoming The Bull 5.Lose It 6.Two Becomes One 7.No One Cares 8.Can't Happen Here 9.Slow Burn 10.Blow 11.Lead Sails (And A Paper Anchor) In June, ATREYU launched a game in which fans are able to hear and arrange snippets of hook-laden first single ‘Becoming The Bull'. The fan who stitches all parts of the song together fastest, in the correct order, will win a sought after collection of prizes, including a signed guitar and a phone call from the band. Try it for yourself at www.atreyugame.com. Brandon concludes, "Roadrunner has been supportive of our band for a very long time, it's great to finally be an official part of the family. We love travelling to other parts of the world; now we have a label who will actually support us in doing so!" ATREYU hit the road from July 20th on the US Family Values tour (Korn, Evanescence, Trivium, Hell Yeah) and hope to schedule international dates before the end of the year.
Roadrunner Records are pleased to announce five UK headline dates for Southern Californian rockers ATREYU. Joining them in November as main support will be labelmates STILL REMAINS. Both bands have spent the summer relentlessly touring the USA - Still Remains on the Vans Warped tour, Atreyu on Family Values – and are looking forward to playing some new tunes for their UK fans. TJ Miller, vocalist of Still Remains, enthuses "The UK is like a second home to us! We think of our fans as extended family so are looking forward to seeing as many as possible. Not to mention getting to play a few more new songs for them!" "It's a been a while since we played over there," adds Alex Varkatzas, Atreyu's frontman. "We always have a great time in the UK and can't wait to see what our friends think of our new stuff live. It's gonna be a party for sure!" Tickets are on sale now, priced £14 (£16 for London).
