Atreyu members Brandon Saller (drums) and Dan Jacobs (guitar) recently spoke to Loudwire about the band’s reunion, which they describe as “a fresh start”. Asked how the reunion came together, Jacobs replied:
“Discussions probably began about eight months ago. We all had dinner one night in Huntington Beach and figured out that we had an urge to make more music. It was that simple. We talked about some options and things grew really fast.”
When asked if a 10th anniversary celebration for their second album The Curse was in the cards, Saller mentioned that Atreyu does not have a label, but teased plans for some new music, “We’re starting to think about little things we might do but those won’t be a focal point. If we do anything at all like that it’ll just be a piece of the puzzle. We’re not looking to promote anniversaries or anything just yet, this is a fresh start for us and we really just want to have fun and pick up where we left off before making any concrete plans. We don’t even have a label yet, but I’m guessing that’s going to change pretty soon. Because we do want to make new music. And so we will.”

Atreyu last released Congregation of the Damned in October 2009 on Hollywood Records, and went on hiatus two years later. They hinted at the possibility of a new song a year ago, but nothing came to fruition.
