There has been a lot of speculation in the current space with what the future holds for Atreyu after the recent departure of vocalist Alex Varkatzas, but this new song ‘Save Us‘ takes away any doubts and smashes speculation with a punch.
Lineup changes can make or break a band, especially one with so much notoriety in the scene. Atreyu has been releasing flawless and creative material through 7 successful albums and have continued to craft their sound with each release. With the announcement of this most recent single, we have also learned that Atreyu is currently in the studio working on their 8th studio album. The official name of the album has not yet been released.
Atreyu in 2020 is pushing some of their heaviest material yet with this first single being released. You can check out the new video for ‘Save Us‘ below!
In a recent press release statement, Atreyu had this to say about the new single:
“Save Us’ is not only a reflection of where we are musically, but also a mirror to the world in this ominous moment in time,” the band says. “We chose to pair the powerful message with one of the heavier songs we’ve ever written. This song feels like the anthem that we all need right now. To us, it’s a call to action to light the fire in ourselves. We can begin to make great change — but only if we look inside first.“
Anytime we get a chance to cover material on songs like ‘Save Us,’ it gives us a really great moment to re-ignite that fire inside us. After the first couple of listens (and, admittedly, a bit of moshing in our living rooms) we were instantly hooked to the beautiful chorus in this song. The lyrics really resonate with us and were just the motivation we needed to rise up!
“Carry the fire
This darkness in us all
If we don’t burn brighter
Who’s gonna save our souls?“
