Wage War debuted the video for its latest single this week.
The band premiered the video for its single, ‘Godspeed’ Wednesday. The video is composed of footage from the band performing live. The song itself is from the band’s latest album, Manic. The album has also produced the singles, ‘Teeth,’ ‘High Horse,’ ‘Manic,’ and ‘Circle the Drain.’ An acoustic take of the song premiered Dec. 17.
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Godspeed’ starts off with something of an industrial bent. That leaning is very quickly paired with the band’s familiar metalcore style for a song that is just as unique as anything else featured in the band’s new album.
According to a statement released from the band, the song’s lyrical theme takes on the all too familiar topic of toxic relationships.
“‘Godspeed’ is about finally reaching the last straw and ultimately cutting toxic people out of your life,” the statement reads. “It’s three minutes and six seconds of all gas, and no brakes. It’s heavy, it’s melodic, it’s energetic. It’s everything you’ve ever come to know about Wage War, cranked all the way up.”
In other news, Wage War will continue touring in support of its new album. The next leg of the band’s tour is scheduled to launch July 18 in Detroit, MI and to run through Aug. 19 in Tempe, AZ. The tour also features performances in cities, such as Nashville, TN; Green Bay, WI and Reading, PA.
