Atreyu is back with two brand new songs "Warrior" and "Underrated", the former of which features Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. They're pretty different than the original single "Save Us", which felt much heavier.
"'Warrior' is song about persistence and never giving up," said the band. "We hope this song can be the puzzle piece that helps people realize that we ALL have the capacity for greatness. Sometimes, greatness can exist in the shadows and lives buried under negativity, trauma, or anxiety. 'Warrior' is about searching through all of that endless darkness to finally find the sunrise.
"When we wrote 'Warrior,' the idea to do a big marching drum break came about. We wanted it to feel like a hometown football game. Travis Barker was the perfect person to bring this to life. It's cool to have him be a part of the song and to perform in a different light than what people may be used to."
The new singles feature Atreyu's new lineup of drummer and clean vocalist Brandon Saller on vocals only, while new drummer Kyle Rosa is filling Saller's spot behind the kit. Atreyu parted ways with vocalist Alex Varkatzas in September 2020.
Atreyu will release their new album Baptize on June 4.
