1980s power balladeer and one-time punk Belinda Carlisle said it best; heaven is a place …
If it were even possible for Atreyu to out-Atreyu themselves they’ve done it in In Our Wake, the Orange County outfit’s upcoming lucky number seven studio album. There’s not a single moment during this release that Atreyu won’t have you jumping at their surprises in sound.
Dissatisfaction is real with Atreyu, beautifully summing it all up with a breathless Fuck It, dropped in among the rabid spits of fury in Nothing Will Ever Change. Fists to the sky! Vent that rage! Unite in individuality and hope and shed the shackles of restraint, The Time Is Now has got you covered for anthemic crowd clamouring with its vicious vocals and recalcitrant rhythms.
A relentless rush of power, emotion, madness and music that will have you panting for its entirety!
So yeah, this may seem like a breathless and rushed account of In Our Wake but that’s what it is—a relentless rush of power, emotion, madness and music that will have you panting for its entirety! Atreyu sing it perfectly–We drown in emotion but reach for the sky–and they’ll have you wallowing in self-pity, reflecting on your existential crises, and raising those fists in pure rebellion and unadulterated joy. What a way to mark 20 years on the scene!
