ATREYU has released the music video for “Immortal”. The track is taken from the band’s “The Moment You Find Your Flame” EP, which is out now on Spinefarm
“Immortal” carries a lesson to using negativity encountered from others as a powerful force to motivate and empower themselves. This concept is influenced by ATREYU‘s own experiences with fame and the challenges that come with it.
“We’ve never had things easy,” frontman Brandon Saller said. “But the only thing that matters is doing what we love for the people that love us. That’s a lesson that everyone can take something from: stay true to yourself and shut out any voices that would have you try to be what they want you to be, instead of what you are.”
“The Moment You Find Your Flame“, produced by ATREYU‘s longtime collaborator John Feldmann, reflects the struggle in recognizing one’s self-worth and it touches on internal battles, self-doubt, and insecurities that can overshadow one’s perception of their own abilities. The band has found its own flame, a metaphor for their soul-baring introspection and providing comfort and catharsis through music in the face of universal emotions that unite us all.
This four-track EP continues the journey set by “The Hope Of A Spark” EP, both integral parts of the upcoming album, “The Beautiful Dark Of Life”, scheduled for release later this year. Together, the EPs form the concluding chapter of the profound “Seasons Of Life” narrative within the album.
“We draw strength from each other and give each other the space and support to be the best, most creative person we can be,” guitarist Dan Jacobs explained. “And together, right now, that makes us the best band we’ve ever been.”
“‘The Moment You Find Your Flame’ is the path you’ve set out on to recovery. You’ve followed the glimmer of hope and potential, and the way forward is beginning to reveal itself. But it is still only a little flame. It needs nurturing still,” said bassist/vocalist Marc “Porter” McKnight.
“Everything that we have put out to this point has built up to this moment,” concluded Jacobs. “Something special is happening with ATREYU right now. We can feel the creativity and collaboration when the five of us get in the studio. We can feel the confidence we all give each other when we stand on stage together. And we can see it in the audience when they’re losing their minds. They’re having as good a time as we are ourselves.”
