Atreyu drummer comments on direction of new record

Atreyu drummer Brandon Saller recently spoke with Australia’s Hysteria Magazine about what fans can expect from the band’s forthcoming album. Here’s what he had to say:

“For us, there was never a situation of too many cooks in the kitchen when we moved to the major label. We have always been a band that experimented with new sounds and new styles, trying to expand on what we have already done. What Alex is saying with that no major label bullshit is the new music we’ve been toying with is unapologetically abrasive.

There’s nothing very radio about it. There’s nothing pop about it. We’re trying to get back to where we were when we first started the band, all we wanted to do was fucken destroy a 300 person capacity club. We just want to go back to fast and heavy. We’ve written and recorded a few songs, and it’s coming up awesome, but we are trying to keep our mouths shut on this. I’ll say this much, it’s very heavy, and a punch in the face for heavy metal fans.”
