Wage War Release New Song & Announce New Album, "Deadweight"

Ocala, Florida's Wage War have announced details for their forthcoming sophomore album, Deadweight due out August 4, 2017. Deadweight was produced by A Day To Remember vocalist Jeremy McKinnon and Andrew Wade. With the announcement, the band has also released a brand new song and music video for, "Don't Let Me Fade Away," which can be seen below.

Digital and physical pre-order options for Deadweight are available now, and include instant downloads of "Don't Let Me Fade Away" and "Stitch" with each order. 

"We are so thrilled to finally announce our new album, Deadweight. We've put so much time, effort, and emotion into making what we think is the best and truest Wage War album," says guitarist and vocalist Cody Quistad. "Lyrically, it's the most vulnerable and honest we've ever done. Musically, we really pushed ourselves on the heavy and melodic sides of our band. "Stitch" was an insight to the heavy and now we give you a melodic answer, 'Don't Let Me Fade Away.'"

"This record was exceptionally hard to pick singles for because of how much time and work we put into making every song a great one," he explains. "'Don't Let Me Fade Away' was always a stand out from the beginning. It's all the elements that make up our band in one song, and in a perfected state. We're very excited for all that's ahead!"

This week, Wage War will hit the road on April 28 with Every Time I Die and '68 for a 16-date trek with festival performances slated throughout, including Carolina Rebellion, Northern Invasion and Rock On The Range. Tickets are available at wagewarband.com. Scroll down for full tour routing.
