Atreyu Release New Song “So Others May Live”

After four years, Atreyu has returned with a vengeance in the form of a new song titled, “So Others May Live”. 

The band has released the new song as a free download on their official website as a thank-you to fans and long-time supporters. Check out what vocalist Alex Varkatzas had to say about “So Others May Live”.

Vocalist Alex Varkatzas has this to say about the poignant song: “‘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.”

He continued, “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. It’s the politicians and the rich of this country waging war to keep the majority pre-occupied, so they can make money and advance their bullshit political agendas. The expense is ‘expendable’ working class/poor Americans’ lives, never the rich.”
