Florida’s Wage War have released their third album Pressure via Fearless Records/Caroline Australia. The album is the follow up to 2017’s well-received Deadweight and is available here.
Premiering at Billboard over the weekend, they are also releasing the clip for latest single from the record, “Grave”. The track made it’s way to Spotify playlist New Metal Tracks immediately – and previous singles from the record received love from playlists such as Kickass Metal and New Core (for which they made the cover photo!)!
Here’s what Australian Media are saying about Wage War’s album Pressure:
“This review is one of those rare reviews where its writer genuinely wishes that Hysteria could name more than three standout tracks. Standout tracks in Wage War’s Pressure? Every. Single. Bloody. One!” – Hysteria Mag – 9/10
“Wage War hone in on their melodic side, yet still stay true to their style and sound. Progressive yet not too far removed from their previous releases…” – Paul ‘Browny’ Brown, Wall of Sound
A whirlwind four years set the foundation for such a statement. The group’s 2015 debut, Blueprints, yielded multiple fan favorites with “Alive” cracking 12 million Spotify streams and “The River” exceeding 8 million to date. Meanwhile, 2017’s Deadweight established them as a rising force. Totaling nearly 50 million cumulative streams in two years, the single “Stitch” racked up 14 million streams on Spotify as Deadweight received widespread praise from Metal Injection, New Noise, Metal Hammer, and Rock Sound who dubbed it, “a relentless, genre-evolving treat.” Meanwhile, they toured alongside everyone from I Prevail and Of Mice & Men to Parkway Drive and A Day To Remember, logging countless miles on the road.
In order to approach their next evolution from a different angle, Wage War enlisted the talents of producer Drew Fulk (Motionless in White, Lil Peep, IDKHOW) and recorded in Los Angeles for the first time.
Wage War’s new album “Pressure” is out now in Australia and New Zealand through Fearless Records/Caroline Australia. “Pressure” can be found now at https://lnk.to/wwpressure.
