Screamo band Atreyu is putting the band back together and giving us a record in September.
The band is now back together working on new music after taking some time away from the project. The album will be called Long Live and is due in September.
Vocalist Alex Varkatxzas wrote on Facebook, “Absolutely no melodic vocals on my end. AMEN! Happy to get back to my roots and still bring in some new tricks. My brothers and I have made our best record yet. Can’t wait to share it with you all.”
No melodic vocals from Alex because drummer Brandon Saller will be handling those. Talking to Music Feeds (by way of Blabbermouth), “I think going away for a while and not being in this band and coming back and being able to think about what you love most about the band… I mean, those were conversations that we had… Like, what do we love most? What’s our strong suit? What do we feel most comfortable doing? ‘Cause that’s what we wanna do, ’cause that’s the most fun.”
As a younger lad, I rocked that Suicide Notes and Butterfly Kisses record hard. I’ll be sure to give the new record a spin when it comes out in September.
Here is their latest single. They released this song on Record Store Day as a 7-inch single.
