Atreyu Bio:

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.

Rockford Scanner™: Hit & Run To RS Fan Vehicle

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.

Rockford Scanner™: Suspects Vandalize A Local Store, Possible New Trend

Sources are reporting that a local store was vandalized on Sunday afternoon.

Three females allegedly went into the gas station at S Alpine and Linden on Sunday afternoon. They destroyed many items in the store.

Then they ran away laughing about what they had just done.

Sources said the police have video of the incident and also the suspects license plate number, but sources said the police were not interested in investigating this case.  Just took the report on it.

The employee that was working was highly distraught and crying.

This is the 13th incident we have heard about in the last few months, about something similar happening in other local stores as well. It seems to be a trend locally, because of how often it happens.

We have asked the police in the past about these incidents, and they refused to comment on the incidents.
