Atreyu have announced their eighth studio album, Baptize, will be released June 4 via Spinefarm Records, and shared the video for lead single “Warrior” featuring Travis Barker.
The band say of the single:
“‘Warrior’ is a song about persistence and never giving up. We hope this song can be the puzzle piece that helps people realize that we ALL have the capacity for greatness. Sometimes, greatness can exist in the shadows and lives buried under negativity, trauma, or anxiety. ‘Warrior’ is about searching through all of that endless darkness to finally find the sunrise.”
Baptize was recorded with famed producer John Feldmann, with guest appearances from Jacoby Shaddix (Papa Roach), Travis Barker (blink-182), and Matt Heafy (Trivium), and marks the band’s eight studio album and first with Brandon Saller taking over the role as the band’s frontman. Guitarist Porter McKnight is now handling the harsh vocals, while Kyle Rosa joins the ranks as drummer.
