Attila Frontman Chris Fronzak Leaves Tour For Birth of Child
Attila are wrapping up their run supporting Falling in Reverse on the Supervillians tour which also boasts Metro Station and Assuming We Survive. With five dates left on the trek, frontman Chris Fronzak got an early start home, returning to his girlfriend who is pregnant with their baby boy. Fans who were expecting to see the animated frontman can take relief in the fact that Fronzak's replacement was handpicked by the vocalist.
The singer took to his Instagram page to announce the news and posted a picture with Jay Panesso from New York-based djentcore outfit Sylar. Fronzak expresses his confidence in the Sylar frontman saying, "Jay is a badass like myself and is very experienced with this type of stuff, so I guarantee these shows are going to be equally as awesome!"
The entirety of Fronzak's post can be read below.
Attila's first show with Jay Panesso will be tonight (Dec. 4) in Pittsburgh, Pa. and the tour will be stopping in Ohio, Michigan, Illinois and Iowa before it ends. Fronzak's stage presence will be hard to top with his profanity-laced banter, chest-puffing swagger and ever-present middle fingers, but it sounds like he found just the right man for the job.
The band seem to turn any crowd they face into a raging party with fans jumping around like the floor in front of the stage was a trampoline. With the energy from the crowd always at full tilt, these last five shows should still prove to be everything fans want and expect from Attila.
