On the same day Atreyu released their new album Baptize, ex-Atreyu vocalist Alex Varkatzas announced his new band Dead Icarus. No music is yet available from the band, but I'd imagine we'll hear something soon enough.
As of right now, the relationship between Varkatzas and his former bandmates doesn't seem too great. Varkatzas didn't seem to be a fan of the band's new music, though Brandon Saller hopes he and the band can make up at some point.
"We'll call it a breakup," he said in a recent interview. "There's obviously a separation, so I think that's something that, in our hopes, the future will heal. But the five of us in the current situation are tighter than ever."
