Christopher Joseph Fronzak (born November 20, 1989), also known as Fronz or Fronzilla, is an American musician, rapper and singer, best known as the lead vocalist and founding member of Attila, as well as the founder of Stay Sick Recordings and Stay Sick Threads.
Chris met Sean Heenan, Sam Halcomb, Matt Booth and Kris Wilson all in high school during his freshman year in Atlanta and formed his first band Attila, named in reference to Attila the Hun, which he came across in a book. Since 2007 with Fallacy, the band released seven records with two different record labels, Artery Recordings and SharpTone Records, before to decide to become an unsigned band. As an independent band, they release in 2019 their last album, Villain.
Fronz recently started a Trap metal side project named Bone Crew. He officially announced the project on 27 July 2018. They have released a self titled album, which was released 3 August 2018 through Stay Sick Recordings. On April 27, 2019 Bone Crew will perform live for the first time ever at So What Music Festival in Dallas.
In 2011, Fronzak was featured in the From the Embrace song "La Flama Blanca", which appeared on the band's The Grind EP. In 2012, Fronzak was featured in the In Dying Arms song "Bathed in Salt", which appeared on the band's album Boundaries, released in September 2012. He also featured in the song "Love, Sex, Riot" from Issues' debut EP Black Diamonds, which was released on November 13. Fronzak was also featured in the We Are the Blog! song "Shwash" in their EP Decadence. Fronzak featured in "Mimic" from Upon a Burning Body's 2012 album, Red.White.Green. He also featured in My City, My Secret's song "The Forefront", in their debut EP Dream Being. In 2013, Fronz was also featured in Sleeping With Sirens song "The Best There Ever Was" off their third album, Feel.
On December 11, 2013, it was announced that Fronzak would be heading into the studio in the following month to begin recording a hip-hop album. On April 1, 2014, he released his first song, entitled "Turn It Up", under the stage name Fronzilla as part of his hip-hop side project. Another single, "They Still Talk", was released in March 2015, along with the announcement of the album. The album, Party People's Anthem, was released on July 2, 2015 under Artery Recordings.
On July 16, 2014, Fronzak launched the imprint label Stay Sick Recordings, created alongside Artery Recordings, and announced that the label had signed pop-punk band Old Again. The band has since signed metalcore outfit The Plot in You, deathcore band Enterprise Earth, electronicore band It Lives It Breathes, and post-hardcore/metalcore band Vesta Collide.
Chris Fronzak has been involved in a few controversial situations.
A famous controversy regards Senses Fail's singer, Buddy Nielsen. In 2014, Nielsen attacked Attila for the song Proving Grounds, stating that the song insulted the LGBT community. Fronz replied to Nielsen "If you think I'm homophobic in any way possible, you're clearly either an idiot or you're in a washed-up band that nobody cares about". During Warped Tour in 2015, Attila and Senses Fail toured together and Fronz accused them of leaving a sign at the Attila merch table calling them "homophobes", moreover he accused Buddy Nielsen of spending every day on stage "to talk shit about Attila".
In April 2015, during a concert in Perth, Fronz was assaulted on stage, he eventually responded by retaliating against an innocent bystander, and apologizes.
In the album About That Life published in 2013, the song "Callout" called out people like Jonny Craig, Ronnie Radke, Christofer Drew, and Mike Reynolds for different reasons. On February 15, 2018, Attila self released a diss track called "Callout 2" in which Fronz called out more than 50 people for different reasons, including Logan Paul, RiceGum, Bhad Bhabie, Harvey Weinstein, Offset, Martin Shkreli, Westboro, Buddy Nielsen, Jeffree Star, Danny Worsnop, Denis Stoff, Tim Lambesis, Emmure, Conor McGregor, Kim Kardashian, Ronda Rousey, Tyler Carter, 6ix9ine, and more than other people causing a lot of reactions by the community and the people involved. Fronz eventually explained some days later the meaning behind the song.
On August 22, 2018, during a concert, he punched and threw a microphone stand at a security guard, claiming that the guards were attacking fans in the crowd.
