Video: Atreyu Releases First Video From New Album- Long Live

Atreyu Long Live Album cover 2015

Atreyu have released the first single and music video from their comeback album Long Live. Watch the video for ‘Long Live’ from their Vevo channel at this link or below:

Atreyu, who went on hiatus after being one of the most influential American metalcore bands, are releasing Long Live on September 18th from Spinefarm/Search and Destroy Records.



The band members commented on the ‘Long Live’ video


Drummer Brandon Saller: “This is my favorite video we’ve ever created. We were fortunate to have our own Porter McKnight at the helm with the art direction and video. We wanted to make the pre-order options interesting and have items for the true collector. Grab your pre-order and get the title track instantly. Then, I recommend going to your car, cranking it up and driving fast while screaming your f**ing head off.”

Guitarist Dan Jacobs: “I’m so pumped to show this video to the world”. “We’ve worked very hard on this record and video, especially our own Porter McKnight, who directed it, so words can’t express how excited we are to share it with everyone. It’s by far the most epic video we have ever made and the face-melting level is on 11. Warning: Uncontrollable head banging will occur.”

Front man Alex Varkatzas: “‘Long Live’ is by far my favorite Atreyu video, which is fitting because our new record, titled Long Live, is the strongest Atreyu record to date”.

Porter McKnight: “Writing/directing the music video for ‘Long Live’ has easily been one of the most exhilarating and fruitful artistic endeavors I’ve been a part of. This was my first attempt at either role and I have to say it was an absolute pleasure. The album Long Live (and the title track!) is without a doubt the best music we’ve ever written and I can’t wait to share it with everyone.”
