Artery Recordings, the new joint venture between powerhouse management company The Artery Foundation and Razor & Tie have announced the signing of Attila to the label. Following releases by label-mates Chelsea Grin, Bury Tomorrow and A Bullet For Pretty Boy Attila will release their Artery debut, Rage this summer. The self-proclaimed "Atlanta Party Metal" band who mesh a hard-partying attitude with death metal riffage are about to enter the studio in Portland, OR with Producer Stephen Hawkes (Burning The Masses, American Me).
Speaking on their sound the band said "Our aim is to create heavy music that is extremely fun to listen to, and even more fun to enjoy at a live concert. Every show is a party." Speaking on the meaning behind Rage the band commented "The word rage has multiple meanings, ranging from a state of anger to the slang term for a crazy party. The lyrics cover both."
Mike Milford of Artery Recordings said "We first heard of Attila through the band's close friends and now Artery Recordings label-mates Chelsea Grin. We checked the band out on the 'Grand Slam' tour and the energy the band brought to the venue was intense."
Attila formed in 2005 and have released two previous albums Fallacy and The Soundtrack To A Party and formed in 2005. The band members range in age from 17-22 and and recently, lead singer Fronz hilariously requested to be made into a male model, and so was featured in an episode of MTV's Made.
Attila has previously toured with Arsonists Get All The Girls, See You Next Tuesday, American Me, Dr. Acula, Chelsea Grin, Within The Ruins and We Are The End. The band will be hitting Europe with Hed P.E. and Threat Signal from March 3rd to April 10th and catch them back in the US this summer.
