Vocalist Kelly Shaefer commented:
“Hope everyone is getting through this very oddball year. Just before all of this madness happened, we were fortunate enough to do an amazing U.S. tour supporting Cattle Decapitation. As some of you know, my fellow founding member Steve Flynn and I have worked with several different musicians since 2006 when we returned from a 17-year hiatus.
Steve loves writing, and making records but many times cannot tour, and that has prevented us from being out there on your doorsteps as much as we might have liked to. So 2 years ago we decided we would adopt a touring drummer with the Flynn seal of approval.
In addition we put together, what I believe to be the strongest Atheist lineup since the original. Young fiery, bad asses, who play this material in a frighteningly accurate way. Most can attest to this when they saw this lineup on the aforementioned tour in December 2019.
Daniel, Chris, Yoav and Anthony have put together some playthrough’s of two classic tracks from our second album.
I am so proud of how it came out we thought what a great way to introduce you to the new band members. I am so excited to make music and tour with this humble, uber talented group of guys. I cannot say enough about them as people, and musicians!
So roll one up or pour yourself a self a shot, and have a listen, and know that when we finally get back out on the road to see you all these are the guys that will be behind me crushing your minds!! I can’t wait till we can play for you live, but in the mean time I present Atheist 2020!”
