Atreyu Headlining ‘Congregation of the Damned’ Tour With Chiodos
Atreyu are fresh off this summer’s incredibly successful Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Fest, but the band is headed right back on the road again this fall for a full tour of U.S. and Canada with Chiodos, blessthefall, Architects (UK) and Endless Hallway in tow. The trek is being dubbed the ‘Congregation of the Damned’ tour, after Atreyu’s recently released album.
Atreyu are excited to return to intimate club settings for the tour, since the band has spent much of the past year playing large-sized festivals. “It’s gonna be a blast,” said frontman Alex Varkatzas in a statement. “We’re looking forward to hitting the road with some of our favorite bands and breaking out a few surprises from our catalog.”
Drummer/vocalist Brandon Saller was equally pumped for the Atreyu tour dates, saying “We’re ecstatic to be headlining again and to have the opportunity to give the fans a full-blown Atreyu show. We’re looking forward to playing songs from the new album, as well as the classics and some rare gems that have been gathering dust. Get ready to party.”

The ‘Congregation of the Damned’ tour falls right in line with Chiodos’ forthcoming album, ‘Illuminaudio,’ which is out Oct. 5 and features brand new singer Brandon Bolmer in his touring debut. Bolmer’s first interview was with Noisecreep.
In a statement, Wayne said, “I believe that if I have only a 30-minute set that I should show the kids the time of their life. I like playing very aggressively and I’m constantly pushing myself to do more creative things whether it’s during the writing process or live.”
