Atreyu: behind the scenes video
Orange County, California’s ATREYU constantly wants to grow musically with each new record. Many of their fans have noticed a change in the vocals from Alex Varkatzas on the group’s latest CD, “Lead Sails Paper Anchor”. In the new behind-the-scenes video, Alex explains the new direction he took and where he wants to see ATREYU go in the future: Real Media, Windows Media, Quicktime.
ATREYU recorded “Lead Sails Paper Anchor” this spring with producer John Feldmann (THE USED, GOOD CHARLOTTE) who worked with the band to create their most infectious, ambitious and musically challenging disc yet. While the band’s juxtaposition of hardcore-influenced chaos and rock-influenced melody is still present, the gulf between the two styles is diminished, making the passages flow in a smoother and more naturalistic manner. “Lead Sails Paper Anchor” was mixed by Andy Wallace (NIRVANA, SLIPKNOT, LINKIN PARK).
