Even though Atreyu might be working on a new “depressing-sounding, rocking shit” record, they have dropped a new music video for “Super Hero” featuring M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold and Underoath’s Aaron Gillespie. The song is off their 2018 album, In Our Wake and the band commented on the meaning of the song, but also dedicated the song to first responders fighting COVID-19.
“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.”
