Atreyu have announced they will be releasing their new album ‘Baptize’, on June 4 via Spinefarm Records — the first release with the revamped lineup.
The 15 track album will also include guest features from Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach, Matt Heafy of Trivium, and Travis Barker of blink-182.
The band have also released two brand new singles titled “Warrior” featuring Travis Barker and “Underrated”.
Speaking on “Warrior”, Atreyu comments-
“‘Warrior’ is song about persistence and never giving up. We hope this song can be the puzzle piece that helps people realize that we ALL have the capacity for greatness. Sometimes, greatness can exist in the shadows and lives buried under negativity, trauma, or anxiety. ‘Warrior’ is about searching through all of that endless darkness to finally find the sunrise. When we wrote ‘Warrior,’ the idea to do a big marching drum break came about. We wanted it to feel like a hometown football game. Travis Barker was the perfect person to bring this to life. It’s cool to have him be a part of the song and to perform in a different light than what people may be used to.”
About “Underrated”, the band says,
“We’ve always had to prove ourselves. We’ve never been handed anything nor have we taken any shortcuts. It’s never been ‘the easy way.’ Over two decades later, we’re still making our mark.”
Following the departure of original frontman Alex Varkatzas in late 2020, drummer/vocalist Brandon Saller relinquished his drummer role to take over singing duties exclusively. Replacing Saller on drums is Hell Or Highwater bandmate Kyle Rosa. Additionally, bassist Porter McKnight will also take over screaming vocals.
