So Cal metalcore behemoth Atreyu, who recently became active again after a three-year hiatus, announced that they had a big surprise in store for fans coming on Friday, September 5. Well, it's Friday, September 5 and this much-anticipated moment has arrived.
What's the surprise? Oh, just a free download of a BRAND NEW SONG!
We're shaking with excitement. #Really.
The band has released the brand new song "So Others May Live" as a free download for fans and supporters. The song is now available at www.atreyuofficial.com.
Free music is good. Free, good music is better. Free, good music from Atreyu is THE BEST!
Vocalist Alex Varkatzas has this to say about the poignant song: "'So Others May Live' is inspired by one of my best friends who is ex-military. The things our troops go through to protect us are pretty unreal. Their treatment after leaves a lot to be desired as well. The song honors them and condemns our government's constant deployment of these brave souls. The people who fight and die for us often come from a certain socio-economic background -- the working class. The people making these decisions to send our nation's children to war come from positions of privilege and wealth; their kids aren't the ones getting deployed and they aren't risking their lives every day at work. Yet they order the working class to go 'keep us safe' at the drop of a hat it feels like. It's bullshit. It's the politicians and rich of this country waging war to keep the majority pre-occupied, so they can make money and advance their bullshit political agendas. The expense is 'expendable' working class/poor Americans lives, never the rich."
With that in mind, head on over to the band's site to download the song. HURRY! DO. NOT. DELAY. atreyuofficial.com
