The Athiarchists

Hailing from Eugene, Oregon drummer Dano and guitarist/vocalist Aaron Tunnell are the twopiece 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 in their homemade mobile stage.

The 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 played the parking lot at events such as the Van's Warped Tour, Jagermeister Music Tour, and most recently three years of Rockstar Mayhem tours before finally getting official permission to play the entire tour this year. They started the tour playing the parking lots without permission but after staunch support from 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 every day, even on the Jager stage to fill in for Shadows Fall after a bus mishap on two of the Mayhem dates.

They were a huge hit with the bands, crew and crowds on Mayhem Fest and were invited to continue their tour immediately with the Rockstar Uproar Festival that featured HellYeah, Disturbed, Avenged Sevenfold and Stone Sour. After that they made countless random appearances playing for the line before doors at shows all across America, most recently a month long trip to the Los Angeles area where they played at the NAMM show and were almost arrested, trips down Sunset Blvd playing while driving with the door open, in front of the red carpet and line for the 2010 Guitar Center Drumoff, as well as a handful of different reality TV shows.

Their sound is a violent blend of Punk, Metal, and the new breed of Thrash, their music itself defies definition. 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 in North America. The Athiarchists will be performing in the mobile stage underneath the Metal Mulisha jump show at the 2011 Rockstar Mayhem Festival this summer.
