Norwegian metalcore pioneers ATENA drop explosive track "Hard Day" from upcoming album!
ATENA, the groundbreaking metalcore fourpiece from Norway, is set to unleash their last single, "Hard Day," before their upcoming album, "Subway Anthem" drops in September. Known for their experimental approach and fusion of classic metalcore with urban elements, ATENA has established themselves as a force to be reckoned with.
Mixed and mastered by the acclaimed Swedish producer Henrik Udd, renowned for his work with bands such as Bring Me The Horizon, Architects, and Imminence, "Hard Day" promises to captivate listeners with its raw energy and thought-provoking lyrics. The track delves into the struggles faced by the new generation, grappling with the constant battle of balancing work and personal time, despising the monotony of daily routines and yearning for a break from societal obligations.
The band states:
"It is truly disheartening to be caught in a perpetual struggle of making ends meet and lacking sufficient personal time to enjoy life instead of toiling away. We utterly despise every aspect of work, detest the routine of attending school, and resent the piercing sound of the alarm clock. Every single aspect of it is overwhelmingly negative."
"Subway Anthem," ATENA's highly anticipated new album, is scheduled for release on September 29th via Indie Recordings. In addition to the upcoming album release, ATENA is gearing up for a thrilling fall 2023 tour, bringing their electrifying live performances to fans.
