ATREYU Covers AEROSMITH For 'Covers Of The Damned' EP

Orange Country, California's ATREYU has recorded a cover version of AEROSMITH's "Livin' On The Edge" for a new covers EP entitled "Covers Of The Damned", which will be released on October 12 — in time for the band's headlining "Congregation Of The Damned Tour". The other bands on the trek — BLESSTHEFALL, CHIODOS, ARCHITECTS and ENDLESS HALLWAY — will also contribute a track each to the effort, which will include additional songs originally written and recorded by the DEFTONES, THIN LIZZY, DEAD KENNEDYS and VOLBEAT.

A video teaser for the "Covers Of The Damned" EP can be viewed below.

"Congregation of the Damned" will kick off October 20 at the House of Blues in Anaheim, California and will conclude on November 27 in Los Angeles.

After the "Congregation of the Damned" tour, ATREYU will head overseas for a string of U.K. dates with BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE and BRING ME THE HORIZON beginning December 6, to be followed by a special Australian tour.

ATREYU is touring in support of "Congregation of the Damned", which came out in October 2009 and debuted at #18 on The Billboard 200 chart. It was recently announced that "Ravenous", one of the album's most electrifying tracks, will be featured in "Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock" and "Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock" mobile.
