Atreyu's entire new EP, "Covers Of The Damned," featuring Aerosmith’s “Living On The Edge” is now streaming on Monster Energy's site. You can find it in their music player and then by selecting Atreyu in the artist dropdown.
Before Orange County, CA-based modern rock band Atreyu launch their "Congregation of the Damned" tour October 20 in Anaheim, CA, the band will release a free five-song digital EP titled "Covers of the Damned" on October 12 via www.guvera.com (US only). "Covers of the Damned" will also be available worldwide on iTunes, amazon.com and all popular music download sites. Limited edition vinyl copies will be available exclusively at each show on the tour (dates below). The tour will see several of these songs performed live with special guests.
"Covers of the Damned," produced by Noah Shain (As Tall As Lions, Orson, Endless Hallway), features two cover songs by Atreyu and three collaborations with the other bands on the tour. Shain notes that, “These young bands all have a unique and different approach to rock music...such radical interpretations of dangerously classic songs. It was amazing to see and hear these guys work together! We recorded the album in a very short amount of time and everyone followed their instincts, so what you hear is an honest interpretation of the music of an older generation filtered through the ears and hands of the generation of artists making the music that defines today's culture. Kind of a once in a lifetime gig for me. And not only is it a bad ass record, it's gonna be a f__king amazing tour!” Adds Atreyu’s Alex Varkatzas, “A whole tour teaming up to release an EP is a rare thing. We wanted to collaborate with the bands on our tour to create a fun series of covers. This shit was fun to record and will be fun to listen to.”
Atreyu and the members of Chiodos, Blessthefall and Endless Hallway recorded the EP in White Buffalo Studios from September 12 to 17. Architects (UK) vocalist Sam Carter recorded his parts remotely from the UK.
The songs are:
Aerosmith’s “Livin’ on the Edge” (Atreyu)
Dead Kennedys “Holiday in Cambodia” (Endless Hallway and Travis Miguel of Atreyu)
Volbeat’s “Guitar Gangsters and Cadillac Blood” (Atreyu)
Thin Lizzy’s “The Boys Are Back in Town” (featuring Atreyu vocalist Alex Varkatzas and guitarists Travis Miguel and Dan Jacobs along with Endless Hallway members Evan MacCarthy and Joe Mullen, Chiodos vocalist Brandon Bolmer, Architects (UK) singer Sam Carter and Blessthefall vocalist Beau Bokan)
Deftones “My Own Summer” (Atreyu guitarist Travis Miguel and bassist Mark McKnight with Brandon Bolmer and Tanner Wayne of Chiodos, Sam Carter of Architects (UK) and Jono Evans of Endless Hallway
All of the songs on the EP were important to the members of Atreyu in their formative years and contributed to their development as a band. Fans can see the behind-the-scenes footage of the making of this EP soon at RevolverMag.com.

Nearly two years since Deftones bassist Chi Cheng was severely injured in a car accident and went into a coma, his condition is said to be improving. Here are some excerpts from the latest blog post about his progress:
"A week ago Chi had a Baclofen Pump implanted to relax his legs and feet more, as they were always tense. Then he pretty much slept for a week, hardly opening his eyes and losing the muscle in his chest, arms and legs from not moving a muscle. Yesterday Mae called the Doc to ask about reducing the dose because he was so unresponsive.
"Then in the afternoon, he opened his eyes wide and seemed to "wake up". Roxie kept telling him to lift up, try to sit up. He started lifting his arms and shoulders and head off the pillow. I was at the computer with my back to them and she called my name. He continued to try with everything that he had to lift up off of the bed. I grabbed the video cam to catch part of it. I started counting at about #6 and he lifted himself at least 25 times. It was not very far off of the pillow, but he was concentrating so hard and will continue to improve we are sure.
"Again last night, she asked him to try lifting himself up. She started counting 1, 2, 3, and trying to have him pull up on the count of three. Sometimes he made it, sometimes not. But he was trying so hard and lifted about 35 times.
"Gina has worked so hard for this man for so long. If she has any little shortcoming it is a lack of patience. Waiting for things to happen is not agreeable to her. She wants him to have the best and she wants it NOW!
"I have come to feel like when God wants him up, God will make it happen. Of course, good care helps and getting him professional rehabilitation with the right equipment would make it much easier. I texted Gina last night before we spoke to ask how much exactly it would take to get Chi to NJ or NY and how close we were to that goal. This is Gina's department and she takes care of it. We are about a third of the way to the $100,000. to get him there.
"I think we can safely say now "waking up" and "actively participating" in his therapy and recovery. Now the real work starts.:) I know you will keep the prayers coming! Respect and love!"
Knoxville, Tennessee's WHITECHAPEL has released another track, "Reprogrammed to Hate," on their MySpace page. The song features guest vocals by Chino Moreno of the Deftones.
Guitarist and founding member Alex Wade comments, "Reprogrammed to Hate is definitely one of my favorite songs on the album. It's catchy, upbeat, and really heavy. It also features guest vocals from Deftones Vocalist Chino Moreno which really makes the song shine in my opinion."
