ATREYU announce their new album ‘The Beautiful Dark Of Life’ out 8th December



Atreyu may be one of the most prolific bands around right now, this year has seen them tour the world, release a three-part EP series and now they have announced their ninth studio album ‘The Beautiful Dark Of Life’ will be out 8th December via Spinefarm. The record will be a 15-track journey which acts as the culmination of the three EPs over a double LP. ‘The Beautiful Dark Of Life’ includes music from ‘The Hope Of A Spark’ – the feeling of being at the very bottom, ‘The Moment You Find Your Flame’ – following the glimmer of hope, and ‘A Torch In The Dark’ – finding yourself, and your purpose.

“‘The Beautiful Dark Of Life’ is the journey we are all on,” said frontman Brandon Saller. “It is the journey we have taken the audience on through the three EPs: the highs, lows, and lessons of life. And much like living through them, you don’t gain a full understanding of what it all means without the whole picture. This album is that picture.”

“I was walking with my young daughter one day when we went under a bridge,” said Saller. “She pointed at something and said, ‘Daddy, what’s that?’ I told her, ‘That’s a shadow, honey.’ And she turned to me and said, ‘Shadows are the beautiful dark of life’”

“We wanted each EP to have its own space to exist, for every song to find its audience and connect with people in its own right. But then when those songs are later collected together in the shape of the album, it will be an ‘A-ha!’ moment where we hope people will rediscover them in a new light, and find something in them all over again,” said bassist/vocalist, Porter McKnight.

“These songs are the culmination of our entire artistic endeavors,” McKnight attests. “It’s everything we’ve learned as humans, everything we’ve ingested as musicians and everything we’ve experienced in this lifetime. It is ATREYU unleashed.”



‘The Beautiful Dark Of Life’ is available in multiple colours on vinyl and CD to pre-order now and the album can be pre-saved on DSPs. Atreyu have just hit the road for a mammoth UK and European headline tour and they’ve also been announced on the 2024 line-up of the iconic Download Festival in the UK.
