Californian metalcore troupe Atreyu have just dropped a video for ‘Super Hero’, the closing track from their 2018 full-length record, ‘In Our Wake’.
This is what the band had to say of the song and its message, which rings true to the current global situation surrounding coronavirus.
“Our song ‘Super Hero’ was written about what it’s like to be a parent and the vast amount of time, effort, energy, and hard work it takes to be a real-life superhero for your children. The song also has a broader meaning, especially given the current situation the entire world is dealing with. There are many superheroes out there who appear in many forms — namely the first responders, medical personnel, and health care workers who are putting others first as they work to fight COVID-19 and to save lives. We dedicate this song to them.”
The song features guest vocals from M. Shadows (Avenged Sevenfold) and Aaron Gillespie (Underoath, The Almost), both of whom also appear in the video.

The band’s seventh album, ‘In Our Wake’, is out now via Spinefarm Records.
