ATREYU HAS RETURNED!

Posted in All Metal, Artist Watch with tags , , , , on July 2, 2014 by Randy

Southern California’s titans of metal, Atreyu, have risen from the self-imposed hiatus they embarked upon in 2011. The reunited lineup, featuring vocalist Alex Varkatzas, drummer Brandon Saller, guitarists Dan Jacobs and Travis Miguel and bassist Marc Mcknight, will return to the stage for the first time in three years for an exclusive mainstage performance at AFTERSHOCK 2014 festival on September 14th in Sacramento, CA.

“The time has come,” says drummer Brandon Saller. “We have been spending the last few months planning this moment. Writing new music and thinking about the future while also reflecting on the past. We all came to the conclusion that it was the right time. Our history is too powerful to ignore forever. Our fans have given us too much. The void of Atreyu, in the world and within ourselves, had existed for long enough. We are happy to announce that after almost 4 years, the beast has risen!
With over 1 million records sold in the U.S. alone, Atreyu is back to reclaim their throne. The band dominated the metal scene over the last decade with fan coveted releases like 2006’s A Death-Grip on Yesterday (#9 Billboard Top 200), 2007’s Lead Sails Paper Anchor (#8 Billboard Top 200) and 2009’s Congregation of the Damned (#18 Billboard Top 200), and then bowed out in 2011 to recharge and focus on their personal lives. The wait is over…
“To say we are looking forward to Playing this years AFTERSHOCK Festival is an understatement,” adds frontman Alex Varkatzas. “It’s been 3+yrs since we have rocked the stage as brothers, and to be playing with all these high caliber bands, in the state that we call home, is truly awesome.”
As many fans have already noticed, 2014 also marks the 10 Year Anniversary of the band’s critically heralded, breakthrough album, The Curse. The significant milestone of one of the last decade’s most popular metal releases resonates intense nostalgia and celebration for fans of the band’s early, heavy sound, and adds yet another reason for fans to get excited about Atreyu’s monumental comeback.
Could there be more shows announced this year? Could there be new music to be released?
Stay tuned as the story of Atreyu is far from over….
