Atreyu Went On Hiatus To Keep Their Musical Integrity

(TeamRock Radio) Atreyu needed their hiatus because their musical integrity was at risk, says guitarist Dan Jacobs. They ended a three-year break in July last year and release sixth album Long Live on September 18 - and they believe the work is all the better for being refocused.

Jacobs tells Loudwire: "Because the only outlet we had was Atreyu, the sound started really altering. Stepping back and being able to do our own things, we could get that out of our system, find a comfortable place to have that outlet, and not let it affect the integrity of our sound."

He continues: "The reason we're able to come back now, be who we are, sound the way we do and be confident about what we're doing, is that that's not in the way any more."

Drummer Brandon Saller recently called their latest material a "total reincarnation" of the band. Now he says of getting back to work: "All I wanted to do was make heavy music, and have a super-aggressive, energetic vibe. We were a lot more focused." Watch the full interview here.
