Everyone leaves a legacy behind. No matter how big or small, our words and actions echo forever and make a lasting imprint.
Two decades since their 1999 formation in Southern California, that truth weighed heavy on the members of gold-selling metal mavericks Atreyu—Alex Varkatzas [vocals], Brandon Saller [drums/vocals], “BIG” Dan Jacobs [guitar], Travis Miguel [guitar], and Porter McKnight [bass].
Of course, their musical legacy speaks for itself. 2002’s Suicide Notes and Butterfly Kisses established them as an influential force, while 2004 follow-up The Curse sold 450,000-plus copies as the group rose to global renown. A Deathgrip on Yesterday and 2007’s Lead Sails Paper Anchor both bowed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 with the latter garnering a gold certification from the RIAA—a highly rare accomplishment for a 21st century rock band.
Following a hiatus post-Congregation of the Damned in 2009, the musicians returned firing on all cylinders with Long Live during 2015. It crashed the Top 30 of the Billboard Top 200 and earned widespread acclaim from Revolver, Loudwire, AXS, and Kerrang! who dubbed it “a hell of a return.” Along the way, the boys sold out countless headline shows in addition to sharing the stage with everyone from Slipknot and Linkin Park to Chris Cornell and Avenged Sevenfold.
Matt M. sent us the following:
“We had a hit and run to the pictured red Ford Freestyle while it was parked in front of our house early Sunday morning. We live near Guilford and Chelsea just for reference. Pictured parts from the offending vehicle were left behind and currently in our possession. Part numbers in the plastics lead me to it being a 2006 Jeep Commander. Seeking a license number from anyone that spots a silver Jeep Commander missing its driver side front wheel arch cladding and other possible driver side damage to it. The police were called and they came out pretty quickly but we know where that’s likely to get us. I included an internet screen capture and circled what should be missing for quick easy reference for anyone.
We live by the motto: NEVER BITE A HAND THAT FEEDS US

It happened last night near Target on West ln in Machesney Park.
He filmed an object in the sky, unknown what it was.
He said there was no noise and when he drove towards it and it went dark and vanished. When we asked him what he thought it may have been or if it was a drone. He responded and said he did not think it was a drone and had no idea what it was.
Watch the video until the end.
Did you see this object also?
Do you know what it was?
