Metalcore outfit Atreyu have made a new track available now for free download.
The Californians recently announced their return after a three-year hiatus fans can now download new track ‘So Others May Live for free’ via Music Glue as long as you sign up for the mailing list.
Singer Alex Varkatzas says:
“So Others May Live is inspired by one of my best friends, who is ex-military. The things our troops go through to protect us are pretty unreal. Their treatment after leaves a lot to be desired, as well.
The song honors them and condemns our government’s constant deployment of these brave souls. The people who fight and die for us often come from a certain socio-economic background — the working class.
The people making these decisions to send our nation’s children to war come from positions of privilege and wealth – their kids aren’t the ones getting deployed and they aren’t risking their lives every day at work. Yet they order the working class to go ‘keep us safe’ at the drop of a hat, it feels like. It’s bullshit.”
