Atreyu announce 10 year anniversary tour


Atreyu have announced they’ll tour to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their record, A Death-Grip On Yesterday.

The band are set to play the record in full at each of their shows, with Islander and Sworn booked as support.

Frontman Alex Varkatzas says: “Death-Grip is my favourite ‘older’ Atreyu album. It represents an exciting time and place for myself and my brothers. It’s our most ‘to the point’ record.

“I also feel it’s one of our most natural records as well. Lyrically, I got to run free and it felt great. We are pleased to play it in its entirety and give each song its due.”

Atreyu have also scheduled a run of shows in Europe and the US following the anniversary tour, which includes an appearance at the Download Festival.

They released a video for A Beautiful Broken Memory last month in support of their sixth album, Long Live.
