Attila Party Hard in NYC With Support From Upon a Burning Body, Iwrestledabearonce + More
Wherever Attila go, the party goes and they kicked off the week with a sold out gig at Gramercy Theater in New York City. Energetic support came from Upon a Burning Body, Iwrestledabearonce, The Plot in You and Fit For a King.
With a hardcore rap track as their theme music, Attila graced the stage. Wild man Chris “Fronz” Fronzak sported dark locks and spiked cap along with his infamous and random shirt saying “Suck My F—.” With his screaming, rapping flow and sexually charged performance it’s understandable why Attila are an acquired taste. The band’s onstage presence is unique and has a certain vulgar charm which makes it easier to see why their fanbase continues to grow.
Attila are touring in support of their fifth studio album ‘About That Life’ and they kicked off their set with new tracks ‘Middle Fingers Up,’ ‘Hellraiser’ and ‘Party With the Devil.’ When they performed ‘Break S—‘ Fronz encouraged the crowd to “make a human baby” during the song and name it Attila. After the song was done the outrageous frontman shouted “New York City empregnated me, f— that, I want child support!” With or without child support Attila went on to play old tunes ‘Rage,’ ‘Sex Drugs & Violence’ and ‘Payback.’
If the marquee didn’t say “Attila,” one might have thought Upon a Burning Body were the headliners during their set. Their explosive intensity gave security guards a run for their money as the crowdsurfers came in hordes. Pits were so ferocious that fans put a dent in metal barricades that struggled to contain their passion, especially during ‘Mimic,’ ‘Texas Blood Money’ and ‘Sin City.’
You can always count on Iwrestledabearonce to bring the weird. Fans that catch the band for the first time are always in shock and don’t know what to think when they see this bunch live. By the third song, Iwrestledabearonce will win you over. The inventive, quirkiness and all around avant-garde and bizarre fusion of musical genres will seep in.
The Plot In You provided aggressive force onstage and vocalist Landon Tewers encouraged fans to “bounce like a f—ing bunny on Easter” which they did, persistently. The Texas boys of Fit For a King got a warm welcome as they got the blood pumping and kicked off the night with a vivacious performance not short of numerous crowd surfers. Go here to see a full list of remaining dates to catch Attila live.
