The date is no accident, either.
4/20 is like a national holiday for the band, which seeks good times, all of the time. Attila could think of no better way to celebrate the forthcoming release of About That Life (Artery Recordings/Razor & Tie), which lands at retail on June 25, than by launching a pre-order with a slew of cool items on 4/20.
Pre-order bundles will include a host of items, such as t-shirts, crew necks, tank tops, drawstring bags, rubber wristbands, shot glasses, posters, shorts, booty shorts, girl-cut shorts and hats.
Make sure to crank the speakers as high as they’ll go.
The album, produced by Joey Sturgis (who has worked with everyone from Of Mice and Men to the Devil Wears Prada to Emmure), is the band’s fifth release and the follow up to 2011’s Outlawed.
More information regarding About That Life will be available soon. You’ve been warned…
In other Attila news, the band is wrapping a month-long tour of Europe with Emmure and Chelsea Grin. You’ll be able to catch the band all summer as part of this summer as part of the annual Vans Warped Tour. Attila will be on the tour until July 11.
ABOUT ATTILA: Attila, who formed in 2005, have stormed their way onto the metal scene in recent years. They’ve quickly and deservedly earned a reputation as a good time, “party metal” band. They’ve developed into an international sensation known for their crushing live shows.
Attila have honed their live chops by remaining on the road in near-nonstop fashion over the last two years, performing with heavyweights such as Asking Alexandria, As I Lay Dying, Alesana, A Skylit Drive, Iwrestledabearonce, Suicide Silence and more, all the while holding their own.
As frontman Chris “Fronz” Fronzak puts it, “All we want is for the listener to have a fun experience, and that is the main message behind our music.”
Attila’s last album, 2011’s Outlawed, landed at No. 7 on the Billboard Independent Chart; at No. 8 on the Hard Music Chart; and at No. 87 on the Top 200 Chart. The band has sold a combined 56,000 album to date via Artery/Razor & Tie.
