It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from the dynamic rockers of Atreyu. They’ve returned with a vengeance with their latest single, “Drowning.” This single is a masterclass in emotive rock and roll – it’s a cathartic journey through the darkest depths of depression and the power of self-expression to find healing.
These Californian metalcore pioneers, formed in 1998, have been delivering the goods for over two decades. With eight studio albums under their belt, including their 2002 debut “Suicide Notes and Butterfly Kisses” and the recent “Baptize,” Atreyu continues to be a force to be reckoned with in the world of rock.
The guys in Atreyu have never shied away from baring their souls and “Drowning” is no exception. The subject matter hits hard, but the message is one of hope and resilience. The band shared, “This song is audio anti-depressants. We’ve all faced our own demons, but by communicating and expressing our feelings, we’ve found comfort and healing. This song is for all of us.”
“Drowning” Music Video Debuts
While the meaning behind the track is heavy, the music video for “Drowning” is a playful romp that will have you feeling lighter and ready to shake off those existential blues.
Atreyu has been tearing up stages across North America for the past two years in support of their latest album, “Baptize,” and they’re now gearing up for their European and UK tour with Bullet For My Valentine and Jinjer. Get your tickets via their official website and don’t miss a chance to experience the raw power of Atreyu live.
