ATREYU: New Video Interview

Vicky Bradley (a.k.a. Vix the Angel Of Metal) conducted an interview with Orange County, California's ATREYU at this year's Download festival, which was held June 11-13, 2010 at Donington Park, United Kingdom. Watch the chat below.

ATREYU's latest video, "Lonely", was filmed in January in Tokyo, Japan with director Sean Stiegemeier, who first worked with ATREYU on 2003's "Lip Gloss in Black" and has shot numerous vids for the band, including last year's special effects-filled "Storm to Pass".

"He did the live video for 'Doomsday', which was more for European release," drummer Brandon Saller told AOL's Noisecreep. "The way he captured touring in that video was perfect. So [we wanted] to do something similar, but make it extraordinary because [we were] in Japan. There are so many beautiful things and different looking locations."

"Lonely" comes off ATREYU's latest album, "Congregation of the Damned", which sold 26,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 18 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD, produced by Bob Marlette (OZZY OSBOURNE), mixed by Rich Costey (THE MARS VOLTA, SYSTEM OF A DOWN, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE) with select tracks mixed by Noah Shain (ENDLESS HALLWAY, SONNY), is the follow-up to 2007's "Lead Sails Paper Anchor", which was fueled by the Top 5 Active Rock hit "Becoming The Bull" and the #2-charting Alternative Rock hit "Falling Down".
