Atreyu have notched up their second gold album in the United States. This past Monday, September 14th, saw their 2004 sophomore album “The Curse” officially certified gold by the RIAA. It’s the band’s second gold album in the U.S. with their 2007 record “Lead Sails Paper Anchor” having previously gone gold back in January of 2018.

If you haven’t been keeping up on the band, there currently there remains some confusion as to whether or not Alex Varkatzas remains a member following rumors of his departure earlier this summer.
