Currently playing to packed crowds on the final Vans Warped Tour, Florida metalcore band Wage War have certainly done well for themselves, standing out in a sea of similar acts. It’s the band’s impressive stage presence that has won over many a new fan (they’re selling out their own headlining tours now after just 2 records), and it also doesn’t hurt that tracks like “Stitch” and “Alive” are packed with hooks and heaviness in equal measure.
Given that it’s the final Warped Tour this summer, many who grew up attending the tour still do – but now they’re grown up with one or more children. It’s awesome to see so many younger teens and even kids getting in on the action, discovering bands that they may end up listening to as they get older, as well. Lifelong memories and all that.
Needless to say, this video part of the way through Wage War’s set will warm your heart. Scroll to the 6:00 minute mark to watch an awesome kid named Max get in the pit, as it were, and prove that he’s got better mosh moves than any of us mortals. It’s true! Notice how the crowd completely gives him room to move? That’s the metal community for you – built on respect for fellow man and woman.
Florida metalcore band Wage War are living proof that your band can go from a local draw to headlining your own tours, in the span of just a few years. All you need is a fresh sound and a work ethic to match, and considering how much the band has both in spades, it’s clear that this is a band who will be playing much bigger venues, very soon. It’s rather impressive.
Their most recent album, 2017’s Deadweight, established the band as a force in the crowded metalcore field. And though the album was again well-received, fans of the band often wonder whether or not Wage War will try anything that really stretches them out of their comfort zone. Well, that answer comes in the form of a newly-released stripped-down version of “Johnny Cash”. A track from their album Deadweight, the song is honestly kinda stunning to think that a metalcore band could pull something like this off. Or maybe not – the band has always had a genuine honesty about their lyrics that many bands simply do not.
Needless to say, this works very well.
