I californiani Atreyu hanno annunciato tramite i proprio profili social la separazione dal cantante Alex Varkatzas, membro fondatore del gruppo.
Di seguito riportiamo il comunicato originale della formazione metalcore:
"We have been a band for over twenty years now. Lived our dreams together as friends and as brothers. We traveled the world doing what we love and have been fortunate enough to play music for such an incredible fan base that provides us with the opportunity to share our greatest moments with them. Now a time of change has come for all of us. Alex Varkatzas is sailing off on a ship of his own, and will part ways with Atreyu. He will not disappear, and neither will Atreyu.
There's nothing but love and respect for each other, and we can't wait to see what he will come up with next. Stay tuned for his upcoming projects and we all wish him success and fulfillment with all his future endeavors.
Atreyu's next adventure is among us.
We love you, we'll see you shortly.”
Come si può evincere dall’annuncio stesso, non è stato rivelato il nome dell’eventuale sostituto di Varkatzas; rimaniamo pertanto in attesa di nuove informazioni dalla band di Orange County.
