Attila Leads Metalcore Lineup at White Eagle Hall in Jersey City

(JERSEY CITY, NJ) --Freshoff a featured spot in the 2017 Warped Tour Line up, the masters of metalcore, Attila will play a more intimate venue when they headline a not-to-be missed, alt-metal lineup at White Eagle Hall in Jersey City on December 8 at 7:30pm.
"We are extremely excited to be coming to the White Eagle Hall in December,” says Chris “Fronz” Fronzak. “Some of our wildest moments as a band have happened in Jersey and we except this to be equally as wild."
Fronz founded Attila in 2005 in his hometown of Atlanta. From the beginning, Attila – high in energy & volume –combined two gritty yet essential ingredients: the “biscuits” of Southern-fried metal like Pantera and the “gravy” of hip-hop like Lil Jon. Since 2010, Attila had earned a well-deserved reputation for their often controversial, take-no-prisoners hard rock. Chaos, their most recent album, reached #30 on Billboards Top Rock Albums (2016).
About Chaos, Rock Sound declares: “Outspoken, outrageous and frequently out of order, [Attila) have won notoriety as one of metalcore’s most potent and unpredictable forces… Chaos does capture Attila at their most unrestrained and unapologetic.”
Attilla headlines a cutting edge, alt-metal rock extravaganza at White Eagle Hall that also features the Austin, Texas quintet – Fire from the Gods –known for bridging the gap between hardcore metal fury and hip-hop consciousness. Their latest record, Narrative Retold, a re-release of their 2016 album Narrative, puts American society under a microscope, tackling topics like racism and abuse of power and balancing those with empowering underdog anthems.
