Wage War Premiere “Manic” Music Video

Wage War have premiered a new video for the title track of their new album “Manic.“ That effort was officially released today (October 1). The group commented:

“‘Manic‘ is probably the most ‘think outside the box’ Wage War song to date. It’s an answer to what happens when you throw the rules and standards out the window and just create to portray a feeling. We really took it to the limit, as it has some of our most heavy and experimental parts in it.”

Wage War Premiere New Song “Teeth”

Wage War have premiered a new song titled “Teeth.” This track is from the band’s new album “Manic,“ which will be released on October 1. The group commented:

“‘Teeth‘ is the first taste of some of the new sonic territory on ‘Manic‘. We wanted to experiment with some different sounds and production and see what we could do. ‘Teeth‘ is simply about a toxic, one-sided relationship. We’ve all had them — and this is [about] a cutting of those ties.”

Wage War Premiere New Song “Circle The Drain”, Reveal Details For New Album “Manic”

Wage War have premiered a new song titled “Circle The Drain.” This track is from the band’s new album “Manic,” which will be released on October 1.

The group commented:

“‘Circle the Drain’ is a song about learning from past mistakes and accepting responsibility in a world that needs change. It starts with us deciding to be a part of the solution.”

They also had the following to say about the new album:

“After a long wait, and endless hours of work, we could not be more ecstatic to announce our new album Manic. We’ve spent the entire last year working so hard to bring you the best Wage War yet, and we’ve never been more sure that we’ve accomplished that.”

Stephen Kluesener continued:

“‘Manic’ encompasses everything we’ve gone through as musicians in the last year-and-a-half. The whole industry halted, and we technically lost our jobs. Our scene was among the first to leave and the last to come back. The album captures the whole period.”

Cody Quistad added:

“‘Mania’ is a wild emotion. The last year was all severe highs and lows. We had some victories, but we’ve also had so many low points. We’ve built this thing for the last 10 years and put all of our chips into it. We’ve missed birthdays and funerals, but we’ve done some extraordinary things. Last year, we found ourselves wondering if it would ever come back. That’s really what the album is about.”

Wage War Premiere “Surrounded” Music Video

“To celebrate the five-year anniversary of its release, we’re excited to put out an unreleased track from our debut album ‘Blueprints‘. ‘Surrounded‘ is a song that easily could have made the record, but never found its place. Over the last five years we’ve grown together — as musicians and individuals. The release of ‘Surrounded‘ has been a great time to reflect on where our careers started and a chance for some perspective.”
