Californian metalcore band Atreyu have released the visual for their new single, “The Time is Now,” taken from their seventh full-length, In Our Wake, which arrives October 12.
The upcoming album follows the band’s 2015 record, Long Live, and sees them reuniting with producer John Feldmann, who worked with them on Lead Sails Paper Anchor. The latter record, released back in 2007, marked a departure from Atreyu’s metalcore sound, venturing into anthemic pop territory.
“While we were on the road [for the two-year tour behind Long Live], fans kept asking to hear more from Lead Sails Paper Anchor,” said drummer Brandon Saller of the decision to work with Feldmann again. “It made us revisit that era of the band. It was a fun, experimental, and explorative time for us, which is so fun. We wanted to give ourselves and the landscape of heavy music a jolt, so we reached out to Feldmann.”
And going by “The Time is Now,” fans can expect a collection of rousing anthems in the upcoming album.
