‘The beast has risen’ were the words issued by the metal world as the proclaimed kings of metal core Atreyu announced their return. The band had accomplished a top 50 album by the time they released their debut, ‘Suicide Notes and Butterfly Kisses’ in 2002 after signing with Victory Records.
The band had earned the opportunity to share the stage with some of the world’s biggest bands including Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and many more after the release of their follow up album ‘The Curse’, which sold over 450,000 copies worldwide. Atreyu have played at some of the world’s biggest rock and metal festivals such as: Mayhem festival, Download Festival, Ozzfest, Soundwave, and Projekt Revolution. In 2006 the band reached even further success as their third studio album ‘A Death Grip On Yesterday’ peaked at number 9 in the Billboard top 100.
With their return to the live circuit imminent, the remainder of 2014 is set to be an exciting time for Atreyu. The band have already set their sights on a new album, one of which will maintain their legacy as ‘the kings of metalcore'.
