Video Premiere: Atreyu “Long Live”

atreyu_longliveAtreyu‘s long awaited return has been official for some months (WOOHOO!), and now it’s finally starting to feel real with the premiere of the music video for “Long Live,” the title track of their upcoming album. The video portrays a grim, yet somehow hopeful concept, and is the cinematic debut from the metal band’s own bassist, Porter McKnight. After five cloaked figures emerge from a lake dragging coffins behind them, we watch each band member become fearful for their life. However, as the words “Our bond is forever lasting” ring out, the end reveals a glimmer of optimism and a twist that convinces us not only of McKnight’s skills as a writer/director, but of Atreyu’s continued reign in the modern metal scene.

Long Live hits stores September 18. Preorder it HERE and get some exclusive Atreyu items: A bike, a surfboard, a skate deck, a Dan Jacobs guitar, a studio-used drumhead, canvas prints, or muay thai gloves. And if you haven’t yet, check out the band’s live video for their single “So Others May Live.”
