Atreyu Premiere “In Our Wake” Music Video


Atreyu have now premiered a music video for the title track to their new album “In Our Wake“. That album was officially announced last night and will be out October 12th via Search & Destroy/Spinefarm. The group’s bassist Porter McKnight said of this latest video:

“With this music video, we wanted our longtime director friend Sean Stiegemeie to come up with something completely unlike anything we’ve done before. We wanted to leave the viewer with a feeling of ‘What the fuck did I just watch!?’ and then play it again to deduce what went down.

Most of our videos have been story-based or life-based. But with this, we just wanted the subtle thread of humanity’s growth and decline. It starts with water, then earth, nature, cityscapes, then slowly decaying humanity. We have a choice as a species to start giving a shit about ourselves and the world around us, and what we choose to make of this life.”

Atreyu tracked “In Our Wake” with producer John Feldmann (The Used, Black Veil Brides),  McKnight had the following to share of its title:

“The album title ‘In Our Wake‘ comes from the idea that every day we humans have two roads we can go down. Do you choose to inspire, uplift, and enhance each others lives? Or do you prefer to belittle, shit talk, and tear down each other down? With each choice made you leave a ripple that reflects across your community, then onto your city, to your nation, and eventually all across the globe. Who do you leave in your wake?”

Vocalist Alex Varkarzas added:

“It’s a deep one. We looked up to Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington, and their deaths were fresh during the writing process. It made us think of what we’ll leave in our wake. We have a choice to change the lives of others for the better.”

Vocalist/drummer Brandon Saller also commented:

“This album is sort of a happy place for Atreyu. We’ve gone down many roads. We’ve always been a diverse band that tried new things but this is different. This is a whole new level.”
