I met The Athiarchists in summer 2009 in Reno, NV at the Tonic Lounge. They didn’t look like much at first glance – just another band with shitty equipment. But this summer they’re playing the Mayhem Festival – AGAIN. Sort of.
The Athiarchists (Aaron Tunnell – guitars/vocals, Dano – drums, vocals) will follow the tour in their mobile stage and perform in the parking lots. In addition to Mayhem Festival 2010, the band performed multiple dates on the Van’s Warped Tour, the Jagermeister Music Tour and the Rockstar Uproar Festival. No parking lot is too big. And because of this exposure, the band has earned a legion of new fans including Stone Sour and Halestorm.
The band is celebrating their 1,500th show in June.
