Headline Tour Slated For Fall

- advertisement -
Approximately a year ago, ATREYU, one of the most pivotal and definitive bands of the American hard rock and heavy metal scene that dominated the '00s, emerged from a period of self-imposed dormancy. The band played both festivals and sold out headline shows, released a new song that earned instant social media trending status, and commenced writing a new album, to the delight of fans.

The band is gearing up to unleash Long Live on September 18 via Spinefarm/Search + Destroy and there is a swell of activity surrounding the album release.

The band has revealed the full track listing for the album, along with the cover art.

Pre-orders for Long Live include a variety of lifestyle items, many of which reflect the interests of the band members themselves. These items include a bike, a surfboard, a skate deck, a Dan Jacobs guitar, a studio-used drumhead, canvas prints, and muay thai gloves.

Fans can pre-order the record HERE.

Additionally, the video for the title track, which was directed by band bassist Porter McKnight, premiered today, July 17, and you can watch it on KNAC.COM right HERE.

Drummer Brandon Saller said, "This is my favorite video we've ever created. We were fortunate to have our own Porter McKnight at the helm with the art direction and video. We wanted to make the pre-order options interesting and have items for the true collector. Grab your pre-order and get the title track instantly. Then, I recommend going to your car, cranking it up and driving fast while screaming your f**ing head off."

"I'm so pumped to show this video to the world," said guitarist Dan Jacobs. "We've worked very hard on this record and video, especially our own Porter McKnight, who directed it, so words can't express how excited we are to share it with everyone. It's by far the most epic video we have ever made and the face-melting level is on 11. Warning: Uncontrollable head banging will occur."

""Long Live" is by far my favorite ATREYU video, which is fitting because our new record, titled Long Live, is the strongest ATREYU record to date," said frontman Alex Varkatzas.

McKnight weighed in on pulling double duty as director for the video, stating, "Writing/directing the music video for "Long Live" has easily been one of the most exhilarating and fruitful artistic endeavors I've been a part of. This was my first attempt at either role and I have to say it was an absolute pleasure. The album Long Live (and the title track!) is without a doubt the best music we've ever written and I can't wait to share it with everyone."

McKnight has provided the art direction for the entire project, from album artwork to promo photos, making the project truly of the band and by the band. "To be at the helm of a project that holds so much love and joy for provides an indescribable sense of excitement and pleasure," McKnight said. "It is truly a fantastic experience and an honor unlike any I've ever known.
