Atreyu premiered the video for its latest single this week.
The debut of the single and its video follow the premieres of the album’s first two singles, ‘Warrior‘ and ‘Underrated.’ All three songs are featured on Atreyu’s forthcoming album, Baptize, which is scheduled for release June 4 through Spinefarm Records.
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Catastrophe’ follows the sound and stylistic approach of ‘Warrior.’ That is evidenced through the juxtaposition of the heavier guitar riffs and screams and the more melodic harmonies presented in the choruses. That is not to say that the two songs are identical. There are clear differences in the songs. As a matter of fact, the heavier, screams and guitars conjure thoughts of works from Atreyu’s counterparts, Killswitch Engage, Of Mice & Men, and As I Lay Dying.
The band explained the lyrical theme in a prepared statement.
“‘Catastrophe’ is, in essence, an apocolyptic love song,” the statement reads. “We took a more imaginative approach to the feelings about that we as individuals and the rest of the planet were going through. The world felt like it was falling apart around us. Nothing was certain, and stress and darkness were coming in from every angle. But living through it all with someone who you truly love somehow made it all okay.”
The new video for ‘Catastrophe’ pokes fun at all of the reaction videos that pollute the internet and the people who produce them. It features guest appearances from figures, such as Hyro The Hero, Trivium front man Matt Heafy, and Ice Nine Kills front man Spencer Charnas.
The track listing for Baptize is noted below.
