Los Angeles, CA – Genre-defying producer/DJ, KAYZO, has released a collaborative single with Atreyu, entitled “Battle Drums“, via his label, Welcome Records. Listen HERE. On the collaboration, KAYZO shares, “I’ve gone into the studio with band members before, but this was the first time I’ve had the entire band there. I had a very simple idea that I brought to the table, and I remember Travis [Miguel] and I were sitting there for a while messing with the amp trying to come up with different riffs and such. When I hit that second break in the main riff, I was like, ‘Ah yeah, that’s it.’ The one-off single follows up KAYZO’s most recent album, Unleashed, released over the summer.

Houston-born, Los Angeles-based electronic artist KAYZO, née Hayden Capuozzo, is one of the fastest-rising producer/DJs of this decade. From his beginnings as an eager student at the IconCollective music production school in L.A. to his official debut as the winner of Insomniac Events’ Discovery Project competition in 2012, KAYZO has graduated from budding producer to breakthrough artist in just over five years. Recognized as one of Billboard Dance’s 100 Artists of 2019 (#67), KAYZO is today a bona fide global act.
His debut album OVERLOAD was released in January 2018 on KAYZO’s own Ultra Music imprint, Welcome Records. Featuring a stimulating, cross-genre blend of rock theatrics and electronic futuristic, OVERLOAD has amassed over 21 million streams on Spotify alone.
In May 2018, he followed this up with a remix of Papa Roach’s “Last Resort“, which has amassed more than 13 million Spotify streams. Elsewhere, the dubstep monster “Wake Up,” his collaboration with RIOT, counts more than 20 million streams on Spotify, with an additional 3 million on SoundCloud. KAYZO has continued to blend the genre of rock and electronic music with releases “Fake Fake Fake” featuring XO Sad and a highly anticipated song with Underoath titled “Wasted Space.”
KAYZO’s latest album, Unleashed, was released in August 2019 to acclaim from Alternative Press, Billboard, Spin and more. His most expansive effort to date, Unleashed features alternative heavyweights such as Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low, Frank Zummo of Sum 41, Of Mice & Men and Underoath. “When I was able to sit down in the studio, talk face to face and exchange creative ideas with these bands in real time…that’s when the real magic happened“, Kayzo describes. “It was incredibly rewarding to be in the studio with these guys. I ended up learning so much.”
“Battle Drums” is available everywhere today via Welcome Records.
