Things are heating up for Atlanta’s favorite party moshers Attila. In advance of the June 25th release of their new album About That Life (Artery Recordings/Razor & Tie), the band has partnered with Spotify and Revolver to exclusively stream the album’s title track today, May 24th, through Tuesday, May 28th. Hear “About That Life” HERE.
On May 28th, the song “About That Life” will be made available for purchase at all DSPs. Fans who pre-order About That Life on the iTunes Store will also receive the song as an “instant grat” track.
Early praise for About That Life, which is shaping up to be one of the “must hear” and “can’t miss” albums of Summer 2013, is starting to pour in, with ARTISTdirect.com proclaiming, “Attila don’t fuck around. They make true blue party metal that the world could use more of. We’ve gotten too accustomed to ‘down and out’ emocore and overly cerebral hipster metal. It’s time to wild out and scream ‘Show me your tits’ once more. Isn’t that what rock ‘n’ roll is about?” and labeling the band “exactly what metal needs.” Meanwhile, Under the Gun declares “no one does party metal quite like them.”
Ahead of the release of About That Life, the band will hit the road and lay waste to venues across the country –a practice that has become their calling card– as part of the annual Vans Warped Tour. The complete list of upcoming summer tour dates is below.

ABOUT ATTILA: Attila formed in 2005, storming 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, explosive 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 albums to date via Artery/Razor & Tie.
