Catch us all summer long on the 2011 Rockstar Mayhem Festival

The new Athiarchists Bio(thanks Robin!)

Hailing from Eugene, Oregon drummer Dano and guitarist/vocalist Aaron
Tunnell are the two-piece madness that is The Athiarchists. They
became popular locally with their DIY attitude, exposure on KFLY
Radio, and the release of their raw tour footage known as “Athiarchist
TV.” Even more of a buzz got started when they began randomly showing
up at major festivals and raging it in the parking lot. Their Mobile
Music Adventure Stage is an overhauled U-haul with a 12,500 watt
generator, full PA, stage & lighting, gear storage, and sleeping
bunks. They have crashed the shows at Warped Tour, Jagermeister music
tour, and most recently three years of Rockstar Mayhem tours before
finally getting official permission to play the show this year. They
started the tour playing the parking lots but after the staunch
support of the other bands, and people seen everywhere with shirts and
picket signs that read “I support the Athiarchists – Let Them Play!”
they were invited to play inside the venue to fill in for Shadows Fall
after a bus mishap. They were a huge hit with the bands, crew and
crowds on Mayhem Fest and will be continuing their tour immediately
with the Rockstar Uproar Festival that features HellYeah, Disturbed,
Avenged Sevenfold and Stone Sour.

Their sound is a violent blend of Punk, Metal, and the new breed of
Thrash, their music itself defies definition. Tunnell says it best
“It’s music about life and reality and being true to yourself, I can’t
explain it, listen and decide for yourself.” They are notorious for
shutting down the night with so much energy that the fans wrap around
the block trying to see inside the stage and huge pits form on the
sidewalk. The energy and passion released from this twosome has made
them one of the most sought after bands on the West Coast. The
Athiarchists are self- managed, produced, marketed, and distributed,
although national distribution is in their near future.

Hardcore metal with a hefty dose of thrash and punk, this band denies
genre specification and has played with a wide range of bands, having
proudly shared the stage with 3 Inches of blood, Hatebreed, Pro-Pain,
Devil Driver, Snot, Sworn Enemy, God Forbid, Daath, and Prong as well
as Better Left Unsaid, Straight Line Stitch, and Hemlock. They have a
Live CD recorded at Eugene’s Black Forest being released this summer
after the Mayhem tour, and there are no limits after this summer.
