ATREYU frontman Alex Vakatzas has hinted that the band’s next album will arrive in the fall.
Back in March, AVENGED SEVENFOLD singer M. Shadows said in Reddit chat that he had heard the new ATREYU LP and that it was “great,” but he offered no further details.
During this past weekend’s Rock On The Range festival in Columbus, Ohio, HardDrive Radio‘s Lou Brutus asked Vakatzas to shed some more light on ATREYU‘s follow-up to 2015’s “Long Live”.
“AVENGED SEVENFOLD, Matt specifically, has started this vicious rumor that we have a new record and it’s gonna be good,” Alex said (see video below). “And let me just tell you, first off, we don’t have a new record and it’s not gonna be good. So definitely don’t wait till the fall of this year, because there’ll be nothing for you to expect then.” He then added that he was “contractually bound to give you these answers” and proceeded to wink at the camera.
After a three-year hiatus, ATREYU came back in 2014, performing at some of the largest hard rock and heavy metal festivals across the country, including Aftershock in Sacramento and Knotfest in San Bernardino.
“Long Live” was released in September 2015 through the Search And Destroy imprint as part of the joint venture between Raw Power Management and Spinefarm.
