It’s been well over three years since metalcore giants Atreyu last hit Australian shores and February 2020 sees their return.
Two decades since their 1999 formation in Southern California, the members of gold-selling metal mavericks Atreyu are still making an impact.
2002’s ‘Suicide Notes and Butterfly Kisses’ established them as an influential force, while 2004 follow-up ‘The Curse’ sold 450,000-plus copies as the group rose to global renown.
‘A Deathgrip on Yesterday’ and 2007’s ‘Lead Sails Paper Anchor’ both bowed in the top 10 of the Billboard Top 200, with the latter garnering a gold certification from the RIAA – a rare accomplishment for a 21st century rock band.
Following a hiatus post – ‘Congregation of the Damned’ in 2009, the musicians returned firing on all cylinders with ‘Long Live’ during 2015.
It crashed the Top 30 of the Billboard Top 200
Along the way, the boys sold out countless headline shows in addition to sharing the stage with everyone from Slipknot and Linkin Park to Chris Cornell and Avenged Sevenfold.
As a result, their latest record ‘In Our Wake’ sees Atreyu once again evolve.
