Atreyu announce their return to music!

Atreyu

Californian metalcore band Atreyu have announced their return!

The band will play their first set since the start of a three year hiatus at this year’s Aftershock Festival in September.

“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!” says drummer Brandon Saller.

“To say we are looking forward to playing this year’s Aftershock Festival is an understatement. It’s been three-plus years 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.” frontman Alex Varkatzas adds.

No details of further performances or studio recordings have yet been confirmed, but rest assured Skin Back Alley will bring you the news as soon as we have it!

As a little reminder, check out the band’s video for “Her Portrait In Black” below:
