Dan & Travis of Atreyu Interviewed at Vans Warped Tour in Mountain View, California
Originally named Retribution, they changed their name to “Atreyu” after the character of the same name from Michael Ende‘s fantasy book The Neverending Story. The name change came because of a change of members and progressive musical styling. In 1998, Atreyu released an independent seven-track EP titled Visions. The album was sold at their live performances. Their second release, was a short five-track EP titled Fractures in the Facade of Your Porcelain Beauty released by underground label Tribunal Records and featured tracks that would be re-worked for later releases. Atreyu signed with Victory Records in 2001, and their most critically acclaimed works would be to come from these releases.
