I love this new record and am looking forward to playing most of these songs live! The video was done by our good friend Dave Blackley. He has done a few of our last videos, I love his vision and his edits are awesome. It’s been awesome working with him.”

Will Haven Release “Foreign Films II” Documentary

Will Haven have officially released their new documentary “Foreign Films II.” The video was directed by David Owen Blackley and it serves as a sequel to their 2003 documentary “Foreign Films.”

Guitarist Jeff Irwin commented:

“I’m excited to finally share this documentary. I love it because it has the same feel as our original release but with a much more mature version of us as well as reliving the history of the band. I have watched it about twenty times, and I still find things in there I didn’t notice the first time.

Dave did an amazing job capturing us and our fans and making an art piece out of it similar to what Brad Oates did with the original Foreign Films. I think it’s a great documentary for new fans to learn about the band and our crazy journey for the past twenty-five years. My advice is to sit back and turn up for volume and enjoy the ride.”

On another note, Irwin also discussed the band’s upcoming album, which they are working on with Joe Johnston at Pus Cavern in Sacramento, CA:

“Making this new album and being in the studio has been a blessing over the past two years. we started writing right before Covid came and then everything shut down, We decided to take the down time to go in and just record the record, so while the world had stopped we were in the studio working and feeling blessed to have an outlet during those two years of Covid, the world was crazy and I think it came out in our music, I don’t like saying this or that about the record all I can say is that the emotion is there and we are happy with the result, look forward to sharing it with new and old fans.”

Will Haven Premiere New Song “Winds Of Change”

Will Haven have premiered a new song titled “Winds Of Change,“ via Metal Injection. This track is from the band’s new album “Muerte,“ which will be released on March 23.

Guitarist Jeff Irwin commented:

“This is probably my favorite song on the record. It was written somewhat early on and went through a lot of changes before we were ultimately happy with it. I envisioned something chaotic – that stress you might feel when you are about to die, and then I wanted the ending to be epic like you were floating away. So, capturing that emotion took some time but I think we did it. It was a lot of fun to make… this was a breakthrough song for us, as far as what we can possibly do with our music.”
