One of the newest additions to the Fearless Records roster, Wage War, have released the second single from their debut album Blueprints, to be released November 27 via Fearless Records/Unified.
Blueprints was produced by Jeremy McKinnon of A Day To Remember and Andrew Wade (A Day To Remember, Neck Deep, The Ghost Inside). The album encompasses 11 uncompromising, multi-dimensional hardcore tracks that take the listener on a high octane ride through guttural vocals, crushing breakdowns and a unique combination of melodic vocals. Despite the heavy elements of their sound, Wage War aren’t focused solely on destruction. “The goal of Blueprints was to establish a foundation,” explains guitarist Cody Quistad. “It’s our first record and our first chance to show people what we’re about. So we really went all out to deliver the best songs we could possibly write and play them to the best of our ability. I think a lot of people are going to be surprised.”
The video for ‘Twenty One’ was directed by Max Moore (Of Mice & Men, Silverstein, Real Friends) and focuses on the reality of growing up and self-identity.
“We are very excited to finally release ‘Twenty One’. Musically, this song maintains our heavy roots while exploring the more melodic side of our band,” says Quistad. “Twenty One is a figurative number for a time when you start to understand and accept life, learn that you’re forgiven, and feel proud of who you really are, no matter your background. We shot the video with Max Moore and could not be more pleased with how it came out.”
