Atreyu Release New Song, "So Others May Live," for Free Download

Atreyu Release New Song,

Earlier this week, SoCal metalcore stalwarts Atreyu, who recently became active again after a three-year hiatus, announced that they had a big surprise in store for fans on Friday, September 5. Well, the moment has arrived. The band has released the brand new song, "So Others May Live," as a free download for fans and supporters. You can stream it below and download it right here.

Vocalist Alex Varkatzas comments: "'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.

"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."

Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments.
