Atreyu's Brandon Saller was the guest on Full Metal Jackie's weekend radio show, on hand to discuss the band's latest album Baptize. The record, while it does contain material written with former co-vocalist Alex Varkatzas, is their first not to feature his vocals. And during the chat Saller spoke about the opportunity that provided for the group.
The drummer, who has now moved to the front of the stage in the band's current configuration, also spoke on making that live transition and pulling strength from seeing someone like Dave Grohl do the same thing. Saller also offers insight into his writing approach and discusses why material written with Varkatzas remained on their new record. Check out the chat in full below.
