US metalcore legends Atreyu have officially announced a new EP, “The Moment You Find Your Flame”, set to be released on August 18 via Spinefarm. Along with the announcement, the band shares their new single “Gone”, which comes with a lyric video.
Inspired initially by ideas brought by guitarist Dan Jacobs, “Gone” is an arena-ready rock anthem that yearns for a lost love and laments the personal failings that brought about the relationship’s demise.
“The Moment You Find Your Flame” follows April’s “The Hope of a Spark” EP, and was produced by John Feldman. The EP reflects the struggle in recognizing one’s self-worth and it touches on internal battles, self-doubt, and insecurities that can overshadow one’s perception of their own abilities. The band has found its own flame, a metaphor for their soul-baring introspection and providing comfort and catharsis through music in the face of universal emotions that unite us all.
“The Moment You Find Your Flame is the path you’ve set out on to recovery. You’ve followed the glimmer of hope and potential, and the way forward is beginning to reveal itself. But it is still only a little flame. It needs nurturing still,” bassist/vocalist Porter McKnight says.
“Everything that we have put out to this point has built up to this moment,” guitarist Dan Jacobs adds. “Something special is happening with Atreyu right now. We can feel the creativity and collaboration when the five of us get in the studio. We can feel the confidence we all give each other when we stand onstage together, and we can see it in the audience when they’re losing their minds. They’re having as good a time as we are ourselves.”
Atreyu are also dropping their next studio album, “The Beautiful Dark of Life”, later this year.
