ATTILA: 'About That Life' First-Week Sales Revealed

"About That Life", the new album from Atlanta's favorite party moshers ATTILA, sold more than 14,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 22 on The Billboard 200 chart. The record arrived in stores on June 25 via Artery Recordings/Razor & Tie.

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 more than 50,000 albums to date via Artery/Razor & Tie.
