Some ancient footage of Attila was recently discovered by Under The Gun Review, and it’s epic. The videos, uploaded in 2008, captures a very young Attila playing (mostly) barefoot in a backyard. By 2008 the band already had two albums out on Statik Factory, before signing to Artery Recordings in early 2010.
Now, all these years later, Attila’s latest album, Guilty Pleasure, debuted at #40 on the Billboard charts, and sold 18,250 copies in its first week. The band is currently on the road, headlining the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour with support from Crown the Empire, Like Moths to Flames and Sworn In.
Love them or hate them, they’ve come a long way from playing backyard BBQs.
