“We’ve spent countless hours, days, and months over the first half of this year perfecting every detail of this album, and it’s been so hard to keep under wraps,” the band said in a press release. “We are glad it’s finally here. We pushed every boundary we could think of to make this record.

“Picking songs to release ahead of an album is always a difficult task but we chose ‘Who I Am’ to be the frontrunner. It’s ‘Wage War on 11.’ Lyrically, the song dives into the reality of the people who inevitably look down on you or talk down to the things you invest yourself in or who you try to be. We sometimes forget that we’re all human beings and we all feel and hurt.”

The band also said there are songs on the album about feeling a pressure to succeed and that are about mental health. 

“There are songs on the album that speak of not succumbing to pressure and being just another face in the crowd, but more so making a change in yourself and the world around you. Being in a band, making music, playing shows in one way or another all comes with a ‘Pressure,’ and how you deal with it is what determines who you are. This record is our response.”

More Wage War news

Earlier this year, after tweeting out a video of a man appearing to be asleep while behind the wheel of a Tesla, Wage War guitarist Seth Blake was under fire.

Blake’s fiancé allegedly took a video of a passing car while on the interstate. The video depicts a person nodding off, or being very relaxed. However, that said, the Tesla the driver that was inside was on Autopilot, a self-driving feature that comes in some models.

You can check out the video Blake’s fiancé took below.

However, it wasn’t long before the alleged driver of the vehicle caught wind of the semi-viral tweet.

“Hi Seth, I’m the driver of this vehicle,” Twitter user @billdower says. “No I’m not sleeping, I’m very relaxed. Driving on Autopilot can be very relaxing. At the last second of this video you can see my hand is on the bottom of the wheel and my head turns to look at a mirror. Please mind your own business.”

However, Blake did not let the argument die after that. Blake then quoted the alleged driver’s tweet, honing in on his own safety. Additionally, Blake accuses the Twitter user of not being the man in the video.

Then, the alleged driver responded to Blake, accusing him of just trying to get Wage War more publicity.
