ATREYU have posted a third webisode on their Official Website. Check out the player below to see some shots from insade the studio and see Brandon (Drums) and Alex (vocals) talk about the the band coming together on new album CONGREGATION OF THE DAMED, which hits stores on the 26th October.
The band have also posted their new bio:
“…with their new album, Congregation of the Damned, Atreyu blows all preconceptions out of the water, commanding us yet again to expect the unexpected. Not only is the record more like a well-crafted continuation of the minefield-strewn path they were on when they recorded 2006’s ‘A Death-Grip on Yesterday’, it’s filled with some of the band’s darkest, most political material to date. Not only have Atreyu been fueled by their passion, they’ve been motivated by their determination to point out the ugliness they’ve witnessed all around them. Hence, the album title.
“Our leaders have screwed us,” explains Varkatzas. “We’ve started wars, we’re in a recession and we’re trying to fistfuck other countries into oblivion. America’s getting by on doing a lot of things in the name of God. George Bush got away with a lot of shit by throwing Jesus into the mix: ‘God wants me to do this’. So instead of being a beautiful church congregation, we’re a congregation of the damned. We’re in such a scary place right now, I’ve never felt this sense of tension before – and that’s in the music.”
