Atreyu Unleash ‘So Others May Live’ Performance Video
The clip features the band performing live at the Observatory in Santa Ana, Calif. last year. Fans will be able to buy a 7" of "So Others May Live" on Record Store Day April 18. The B-side is the new song "When the Day Is Done."
In a new interview with Alternative Press, frontman Alex Varkatzas talked about the band's upcoming sixth album, which is scheduled to be released sometime this fall: "Having us come back together now—this feels like the missing link record. It feels like the record we would've made after A Death-Grip On Yesterday. In my mind, we're starting there."
He continues, "Lead Sails Paper Anchor and Congregation of the Damned, you know, they happened. They're part of our career. I'm totally proud of some moments on those records. But I like the vibe of heavier, more aggressive type of music. We've definitely gotten back to that. You can hear it already in "So Others May Live." That's not exactly trying to be commercially acceptable."
"We just get to make music now," Varkatzas states. "And as commercial and bulls--t music has kind of fallen apart... I mean, there's two things going now, really. There's totally contrived crap like American Idol and then there are heavier bands that are able to make their mark and do things and get big, like Of Mice & Men, Bring Me the Horizon, and of course, Avenged Sevenfold."
