The wait is over, ladies and gentlemen. After months of teasers and rumors with absolutely no interviews or public appearances, the members of Atreyu have announced that they are officially returning to the world of music.

Today, a press release was distributed confirming the news we all believed to be true for the better part of 2014 so far: Atreyu are back. The band has been planning this announcement for several months and could not be more thrilled to finally reveal their plans to fans. “The time has come,” says drummer Brandon Saller. “We have been spending the last few months planning this moment. Writing new music and thinking about the future while also reflecting on the past. We all came to the conclusion that it was the right time. Our history is too powerful to ignore forever. Our fans have given us too much. The void of Atreyu, in the world and within ourselves, had existed for long enough. We are happy to announce that after almost 4 years, the beast has risen!”

Atreyu will play their first show in years at Aftershock Festival in California on September 14. Additional tour dates are not guaranteed, but they seem pretty damn likely.

“To say we are looking forward to Playing this years AFTERSHOCK Festival is an understatement,” adds frontman Alex Varkatzas. “It’s been 3+yrs since we have rocked the stage as brothers, and to be playing with all these high caliber bands, in the state that we call home, is truly awesome.”

The release ends with a teaser that claims the band may reveal plans for additional shows, as well as new music, before the end of 2014. Follow UTG on Twitter for updates.
