Attila Announces Release Date For New Album

Attila will release their Artery Recordings / Razor & Tie debut, RAGE, on May 11th. The band, made up of Fronz (vocals), Nate (guitar), Chris (guitar), Sean (drums) and Paul (bass) is the fourth addition to the Artery/Razor and Tie joint venture.

Coming from Atlanta, the members of Attila were influenced by a wide and eclectic range of artists from dirty south rappers to assorted metal bands. Their new album showcases the impression the Atlanta music scene instills with the band. Regarding the meaning behind RAGE, lead singer Fronz stated, "The title can be perceived in many ways, one obviously being a state of extreme anger, and the other being its more obvious slang meaning - to party! I have always been a fan of play-on-words and double meanings, and that's what drew me to this title more than anything."

The party metal band hails from Atlanta, but has spent the past two years touring full time. After wrapping up a four week tour in Europe supporting hed(PE), Attila is jumping right into a summer-long US tour with Drop Dead Gorgeous starting April 8th. Despite the toll of constantly being on the road, Fronz said, "We are all enjoying the touring lifestyle, and we are looking forward to constantly progressing and participating in bigger tours."

Artery Recordings is the label home to The Artery Foundation and is an imprint of independent label Razor & Tie, whose first two releases are Chelsea Grin and Bury Tomorrow.

Here are the upcoming ATTILA tour dates: More...
