Wrapping up their fall tour, Atreyu went out with a bang before a sold-out crowd. Tasked with the duties of providing main support for Hollywood Undead, Atreyu did more than just warm up the crowd.
With call and response in almost every song and constant encouragement from frontman Alex Varkatzas, the O.C. group brought the audience to levels the headliner never lived up to. Pulling songs from their decade-old library, Atreyu gave fans who drove from all over exactly what they wanted.
The band sounded like a solid machine from start to finish, offering little room to take a breath. Bodies overflowed the tiers of the Wiltern floor as various pits emerged only two songs into their set – a true sign that your band is doing something right.
The fact that this band can incorporate so much crowd interaction is what sets them apart. Bridging the gap between stage and floor is tricky, but from the looks of this show, these guys mastered it a long, long time ago.
