Atreyu will embark on a headline tour in May 2016 in recognition of the 10-year anniversary of A Death-Grip on Yesterday." Tickets will go on sale on Friday, April 1st at 10AM PT.

The band will be playing the album in full for the first time, as well as songs from current album "Long Live," which was released in September 2015 on Spinefarm Records/Search & Destroy.

Islander and Sworn In will serve as support, save for the Seattle date, during which Nekrogoblikon will replace Sworn In.

Atreyu vocalist Alex Varkatzas said, "'Death-Grip' is my favorite '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!"

Drummer and vocalist Brandon Saller concurred, "For me, 'Death-Grip' was a landmark record in our career. I feel that it was the first album we made where we took fearless leaps into the unknown. This record is still one of my favorite pieces of work we've ever done and I feel like our fans hold it in the same regard. I'm really excited to celebrate 10 great years of this album's life. We will be playing 'Death-Grip' front to back, as well as a good bunch of other favorites."
