Fresh from their tour supporting Bullet For My Valentine on their recent UK headline tour, Atreyu have released “Watch Me Burn” along with accompanying video. The band have also announced their new EP, The Hope Of A Spark, will be released on April 14 via Spinefarm.

The video, directed by Aaran McKenzie, bassist of While She Sleeps, features English actor Leigh Gill (Joker, Game of Thrones, Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them) and you can check it out here.

Speaking about the single, frontman Brandon Saller said

“The overarching concept is essentially about the seasons of life. Everyone goes through the same things, the ups, and downs of life. The emphasis really is the importance of at least respecting those, and finding the positives and the lessons from even your lowest moments. It’s very relatable to all of us individually, but it’s also incredibly pertinent to the journey of this band.”

Atreyu will kick off The Hope of a Spark headlining tour on April 27th in Sacramento at Ace of Spades with a one-off date supporting Kayzo on May 6th in Los Angeles and concluding on May 21st in Denver at the Gothic Theatre. All dates are with special guests Point North, Within Destruction and LYLVC.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
