Atreyu Guitarist Launches Clothing Line

The following press release has been announced:

Rokk Clothing is the brainchild of Dan Jacobs, guitarist with ATREYU. An avid fan of eighties Rock, Dan would scour the Internet to find vintage T shirts. One day, in conversation with his brother Joe, they got to thinking about how much these T shirts cost and surely there must be a less expensive way to produce them. Dan had a very definite idea of the design, fabric, fit he wanted and together with Joe's business skills they have put together their first range.

Says Dan, "I wanted to design my own brand because I wanted to produce the kind of T shirt I would buy, at a reasonable price. These 'T's had to look like real eighties stuff, classic Rock band 'T' shirts in bold primary colors and design, – they've got to look so good that at first glance you'd think it was the real thing."

Rokk Clothing brings alive the classic Rock shirt of today. All are original authentic designs, inspired by Dan and executed by Joe exclusive to the Rokk Clothing brand. The range also features Japanese style headbands, like the ones Dan wears during ATREYU's performances.

The capsule range of Rokk Clothing was launched on October 1, 2007. Says Joe Jacobs: "We have been really encouraged by initial sales and the excitement the range is generating. Orders have been received from all over the United States as well as from the United Kingdom, Austria, Germany and Italy."

Atreyu To Film San Diego Concert

ATREYU will film their August 30, 2007 concert at Soma in San Diego, California. "This should be a very special show for all of us so come on out and join the party!" the band says. "Our friends TRIVIUM, DROID and LOWER DEFINITION will also be playing. We don't film shows often and every time we have it's been a blast. This is a show not to be missed."

ATREYU's new album, "Lead Sails Paper Anchor", is being released today (August 28).

To celebrate the release of "Lead Sails Paper Anchor", ATREYU has scheduled two special in-store events for its hometown fans. Later today (August 28), the band will be in Irvine, CA at the Irvine Spectrum and will be signing copies of its new album starting at 5:00 p.m. Then on August 30, the band heads down to Horton Plaza in San Diego, CA for another signing at the Hot Topic store. Fans that purchase the record in advance of street date at the Irvine location will get a wristband that will guarantee them a meet-and-greet with ATREYU and the same applies to the San Diego fans that purchase the record on August 28.

ATREYU recorded "Lead Sails Paper Anchor" this spring with producer John Feldmann (THE USED, GOOD CHARLOTTE) who worked with the band to create their most infectious, ambitious and musically challenging disc yet. While the band's juxtaposition of hardcore-influenced chaos and rock-influenced melody is still present, the gulf between the two styles is diminished, making the passages flow in a smoother and more naturalistic manner. "Lead Sails Paper Anchor" was mixed by Andy Wallace (NIRVANA, SLIPKNOT, LINKIN PARK).

Family Values 2007 Tour Adds Second Stage

LiveDaily.com reports: A second stage, more bands and a video-game contest have been added to this summer's Family Values Tour.

The festival's fifth installment is set to kick off July 20 with Korn and Evanescence topping the bill and sharing the main stage with Atreyu, Flyleaf, Trivium, and Hell Yeah, the new band comprising Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott and members of Mudvayne and Nothingface.

The second stage, sponsored by RedOctane video game "Guitar Hero," will host five additional bands, including up-and-comers Five Finger Death Punch, Invitro and Twin Method. Between sets, a national "Guitar Hero II" competition will take place on stage, with competitors vying for an autographed Korn guitar, band access passes and a chance to challenge Korn frontman Jonathan Davis to a game after the show.

The 30-city trek starts in Maryland Heights, MO, and makes its way across the US, wrapping in early September with four shows in California. The caravan of rockers is also set to stop in Toronto July 31st. Details are listed below.

As they did last year, organizers will offer $9.99 lawn seats in most cities.

Family Values, which Korn created with its management company in 1998, returned to the stage last summer following a five-year hiatus and saw its most successful run to date.

Korn is scheduled to release its eighth studio album, which won't have a name, on July 31. The set's first single, "Evolution," and a video that documents the making of the song, are streaming at Korn's website.

Atreyu Issues Statement Regarding FFTL Incident

Atreyu has issued a follow-up statement explaining in further detail the circumstances behind the recent removal of support act From First To Last from the group's headlining tour.

In a posting on its MySpace page, From First To Last stated about the trek, "We did everything possible to stay on this tour. Sonny [Moore, vocals] would not have been able to sing due to a tear in his vocal cord, but would have been onstage playing guitar while Craig, of Chiodos, would handle singing duties for the remainder of the tour. Our plan to enable us to play the rest of the tour was disregarded and as our crew was setting up for the show in Worcester, MA we were informed that we were being kicked off the tour. Understand that it was not our choice to leave this tour... we were forced to leave."

Atreyu's latest statement reads as follows:

"Atreyu has been portrayed in a terrible light during the course of this, and we're tired of it. We felt the need to make one final post including the honest truth about the issue.

"Due to Sonny's vocal problems forcing him to leave the tour, From First To Last would become an incomplete band. In the business of touring, from personal experience, and with the help of management (we have the same management as From First To Last, mind you), we came to the industry conclusion: incomplete band, incomplete money... We offered From First To Last (minus the lead singer) a MORE than appropriate amount of money, whereas most other bands would have just asked them to leave altogether. The amount was MUCH MORE than we ever got on a tour as a support band (when we had sold many more records than From First To Last has now and when the headliners were much larger than our band is now). From First To Last responded to this by saying they were going to bring Sonny out as a guitarist and have Craig from Chiodos sing their set so they could get paid as they had with Sonny singing... For one, if you cared about your singer at all he should be at home, resting, not playing guitar just so your band can make more money. Two, we didn't want Craig to sing two sets a night and hurt his voice, forcing both bands to have to drop off (regardless of whether he said he's done it before or not)... They, unfortunately, declined this offer. More...

From First To Last Kicked Off Atreyu Tour

From First To Last have posted the following message:

"We regret to inform you (the fans) that we have been "kicked" off tour."

"We did everything possible to stay on this tour. Sonny would not have been able to sing due to a tear in his vocal chord, but would have been onstage playing guitar while Craig, of Chiodos, would handle singing duties for the remainder of the tour. Our plan to enable us to play the rest of the tour was disregarded and as our crew was setting up for the show in Worcester, MA we were informed that we were being kicked off of the tour."

"Understand that it was not our choice to leave this tour... we were forced to leave. Once again we apologize... to you (the fans)... to everyone who bought a ticket to see us play... to the KVLT... if we were allowed to be on the rest of this tour we would be."

From First To Last previously cancelled their Philadelphia appearance at the last minute. This cancellation and the need for fill-ins on vocals was due to Sonny's two vocal chord surgeries - where they cut your vocal chords very slightly in order to smooth them out and have them be a 100%. The surgery requires a lot of rest and soldiering through the tour was not working.

They have shown a real interest in us for quite a while. To put it simply, they are down for us and we are down for them."
