After teasing fans earlier this week promising something new coming soon, metalcore rising stars Wage War have delivered a brand new head-pounding single titled “Low.”
Coming in as their first new track since the release of their 2016 slobberknocker Deadweight, “Low” picks up right where the Ocala outfit left off providing heavy moments and breathtaking choruses.
“'Low’ represents everything you’ve come to expect from Wage War but in its most refined state,“ says guitarist/clean vocalist Cody Quistad. "Lyrically, the song is centered around experiences with depression and anxiety. I think it’s a conversation that is finally being brought to light and deserves to be so. I’ve always found solace in listening to dark songs that find me exactly where I’m at. There’s something comforting about knowing that someone has been through exactly what you’re feeling and hopefully that’s what ‘Low’ is for someone."
As for how the hard-hitting track came together, Quistad says: ”'Low’ is one of the first full songs we completed after Deadweight. It started as most songs do with the main riff. We recorded the first demo of it on our bus on Warped Tour this past year. We went back to Andrew Wade and Jeremy McKinnon for the production and engineering side of things and were honored to have metal legend Mark Lewis mix it! The song went through many structure changes before landing on what it is today.”
