Like a fine wine, Atreyu is only getting better with age! Their latest offering “In Our Wake” reaffirms their remarkable legacy and expands it like never before!

Brandon Saller (Drums & Co-Lead Vocals) states “I feel like this is the record that people will remember our band by. Somehow, twenty years later, it’s reached a whole new level. I feel like we’re alive, and Atreyu has never been more on fire than we are now.”
