Atreyu To Launch New Beer

Atreyu have teamed up with Noble Ale Works to create a new beer called “Atreyu Superhero DIPA With Orange Zest.” A can release party will be held at the Noble Ale Works Brewery in Anaheim, CA on December 16. Here’s a description of the beer:

“This beer is so badass it will leave all other brewery/band collabs In Our Wake. Led by Citra and El Dorado, this hazy DIPA gives soft notes of lychee, tropical fruit, and butterfly kisses, while bright California navel oranges keep the party going.”

Atreyu’s Alex Varkatzas: “We Invented Metalcore. That May Sound Cocky But I Don’t Care.”

During a recent interview with Rock Sound, Atreyu singer Alex Varkatzas made a pretty bold statement. He claimed his band actually “invented metalcore”

Varkatzas said the following

“You know I don’t know where we fit in any scene and I don’t think that any scene knows where we fit. I think that’s just part of us.

This is going to sound a little cocky but I’m a singer in a band. I don’t think we fit into any genre. I think we are hard to pin down. When we first started it was a little easier.

We were a metallic hardcore band with singing parts. There wasn’t any else like that when we were doing it. People get confused and say ‘you’re a metalcore band’, but we invented metalcore. That may sound cocky but I don’t care.

We pre-date Poison The Well and Killswitch Engage and all those bands. I’ve been doing this since I was literally 12 years old.

So throughout that I still don’t know where we fit, and I think our fans know that. This is the place to be you. This is our driving force and heartbeat. This is the place we go to express ourselves.

I think our fan base and the people who like our band are like that too. They like music and we play music.”
