Where once Atreyu were heralded as the early innovators of the nascent metalcore scene, their place in heavy music’s diverse and boundary-breaking scene has never felt more relevant drawing from inspirations of pop-punk, hardcore, thrash, ‘80s rock and more melding into a unique and varied sound in an increasingly genreless world.
The band now returns to Australia for the first time since early 2020 armed with a catalogue of anthems together with plenty of new music in 2021’s Baptise album as well as two EPs released so far in 2023 in The Hope Of A Spark and The Moment You Find Your Flame.
The new music marks the beginning of the next chapter in the band’s story, and the tantalisingly promise of what the future holds.
“These songs are the culmination of our entire artistic endeavours,” bassist/vocalist Porter McKnight attests. “It’s everything we’ve learned as humans, everything we’ve ingested as musicians, and everything we’ve experienced in this lifetime. It is ATREYU unleashed.”
