  • Atreyu
We all remember Atreyu.

In the height of metalcore’s glory days in the late '90s and early 2000s, the Orange County band continued to release an onslaught of albums especially after jumping onto Victory Records. While a lot of bands from that era have seemed to fall by the wayside or evolve into a softer, active rock outfit, Atreyu has managed to keep true to their metalcore roots while still growing as musicians.

The band's 2002 Suicide Notes and Butterfly Kisses established them as an influential force, while 2004 follow-up The Curse sold more than 450,000 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.

Following a hiatus post-Congregation of the Damned in 2009, the musicians returned firing on all cylinders with Long Live during 2015. It landed in the Top 30 of the Billboard Top 200 and earned widespread acclaim from the likes of Revolver, Loudwire, AXS, and Kerrang! who dubbed it “a hell of a return.”

In Our Wake, the seventh album from the band comes out in October, just in time to learn all the words when they hit San Antonio for a show at the Aztec Theatre on Monday, November 12.

Tickets on sale to the public Thursday, August 30 at 10am. Live Nation Pre-Sale begins Wednesday, August 29 from 10am-10pm Password: REMIX.
