From Huntington Beach in California, ATREYU formed in 1998 and tower as a pioneer of the Metalcore Genre with seven colossal studio albums under their belts. Their debut album “Suicide Notes and Butterfly Kisses” (2002) and sophomore release “The Curse” (2004) stand as monuments of Metalcore. Like a fine wine, ATREYU is only getting better with age! Their latest offering “In Our Wake” reaffirms their remarkable legacy and expands it like never before! Brandon Saller (Drums & Co-Lead Vocals) states “I feel like this is the record that people will remember our band by. Somehow, twenty years later, it’s reached a whole new level. I feel like we’re alive, and ATREYU has never been more on fire than we are now.” [Source Rick Florino]
