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.”

TEETH Premiere “Voodoo Priestess” Video

TEETH have premiered a new video for their new song “Voodoo Priestess.“ The track is available digitally and can also be pre-ordered as a limited edition 7 inch along with the group’s previously released song “Writhe.”

Vocalist Blake Prince commented:

“When we were writing ‘Voodoo Priestess‘, both Chris and I were living in isolation at my house. We were experiencing some altering shifts in both of our lives. We were dealing with two different situations, yet they felt as if they were in the same vein. This song deals with a failing relationship in which you invested your whole heart into. The feelings of loss, betrayal, abandonment, and blunt reality have a strong presence in the lyrics.

I think the intent was to produce something that was going to work as a therapeutic release for both of us whilst expressing that our true love is our art and creating these songs. The lyric ‘I met the love of my life on three strong ecstasy pills’ alludes to the first time I picked up a mic and learned how to express myself in such a capacity.

It was/is a strange and uncertain moment in time. We were both dealing with something similar, feeling so dire, while the pain we were experiencing felt very different.”

TEETH Part Ways With Drummer Ryan “Legs” Leger

TEETH have parted ways with drummer Ryan “Legs” Leger (ex-Every Time I Die). With him gone, the band will now be recording their new album with drummer Davis Maxwell (ex-Heavy Hearts).

TEETH issued the following statement:

“As some of you may have already heard, Legs will no longer be moving forward as a member of TEETH. Like anything else in the creative realm, it’s a struggle to get a band off the ground and sometimes life gets in the way. This project was just one of those situations.

Legs is a monster drummer and we wish him the best – he’ll be working on his own stuff soon so keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, the mighty @_davismaxwell (Heavy Hearts, Kawthra) will be stepping in to track the drums for this album and it’s gonna be a ripper. Can’t wait to show you all what we’ve been working on.”

TEETH (Hundred Suns, Ex-Every Time I Die, Etc.) Premiere New Song “Writhe”

TEETH (Hundred Suns, ex-Every Time I Die, etc.) have premiered a new song titled “Writhe.” You can check that out below:

Chris LeMasters commented:

“‘Writhe‘ hits extremely close to home for me. I wrote it after finding out that a woman very near and dear to my heart had been both physically and mentally abused over the course of 15+ years. I never knew — she never felt safe enough to tell anyone. But that’s just MY experience.

‘Writhe‘ touches on those moments of helplessness and anger when you or someone you know and love has been oppressed, harmed, or abused by someone in a position of power. It dives into those dark moments when you fetishize doing awful things to that person. ‘Writhe‘ is directed towards the oppressors, the cowards, the abusers, and the people who violate your trust, and take advantage of it — whether it’s crooked police, a family member, or a spouse.

I know this applies to so many peoples lives right now, too. Whether it’s the repeated, systemic abuse (and murder) of innocent black/POC citizens by corrupt law enforcement, or COVID-19 causing so many of us to be stuck at home unable to work, attend school, etc., resulting in more and more instances of domestic abuse as victims no longer have a daily escape.

We wanted/NEEDED to write a song that gives those people a voice. It’s angry, spiteful, and violent because we refuse to ignore those primal human emotions — good or bad. They’re REAL, and I hope this song acts as an outlet of sorts to those victims.”

With this news, the band have also asked their fans to consider donating to Act Blue and the Canadian Women’s Foundation. They said the following about Act Blue:

“We chose this fund because it splits all donations evenly across numerous organizations that help support the BLM Movement. Instead of only donating to ONE charity, this lets supporters donate to a variety.”

They also added the following about the Canadian Women’s Foundation:

“We also chose to support the Canadian Women’s Foundation because it provides a variety of resources, education, and opportunities for women while actively promoting gender equality. The CWA focuses on women, girls, trans, genderqueer, non-binary, and 2SLGBTQI+ because they face distinct barriers that require distinct solutions and because gender equality improves economic and social conditions for everyone – whether it’s helping victims escape home/spousal abuse, poverty, or supporting important efforts to flatten the curve of COVID-19 and promoting equal rights for the 2SLGBTQi+ community.”
