This, according to frontman Alex Varkatzas’ recent Tweets. He says that Atreyu are not breaking up [Edit: Sure], but just taking a “break” for a spell so they can work on other projects.
“Hey all. [You] have asked, so here goes. Atreyu is taking a long long break after 11 [years] of rocking,” says Alex in the first Tweet. “We aren’t breaking up.”
Good. Atreyu have never done it for me. In fact, they annoy me. The fact that they named themselves after the least menacing character from “The Neverending Story” just bugs me immensely. And their music sucks, too.
“We aren’t writing, recording, or touring for a while,” Alex continued. “Simply taking a break to recharge and focus on different parts of our lives. Much love.”
Later, he Tweeted again. “Thanks to everyone who has supported us and given us a reason to exist over the past 11 [years]. We hope to see you again 1 day. Until next time. All of us have other projects we are excited about and urge you to check them out if you miss us too much.”
