Youngblood is the brand new song from Florida Metalcore band Wage War. The song comes from the bands debut album Blueprints, which is due for release on November 27th via the Fearless Records label. Blueprints is available now for pre-order on the bands web shop, and is also available via iTunes, anyone who pre-orders the album will receive instant gratification downloads of Twenty One and Alive.
From the press release – “With over five years of unmatched determination, the culmination of five Florida musicians’ effort is ready to be unleashed. Guitarist/vocalist Cody Quistad and guitarist Seth Blake met in high school when they discovered that they shared musical interests, and started jamming soon thereafter. In 2013, the duo encountered vocalist Briton Bond and, shortly after, bassist Chris Gaylord and drummer Stephen Kluesener were incorporated into the mix. The line-up alone of Ocala, Florida’s Wage War sheds a more-than-welcome light on the importance of a solid foundation built upon evolving musicianship. Wage War marks their territory with from-the-heart lyrics and thrashing beats that transcend to a community who understands the trials and tribulations of growing up all too well.”
Cody Quistad said about Blueprints – “The goal of Blueprints was to establish a foundation. It’s our first record and our first chance to show people what we’re about. So we really went all out to deliver the best songs we could possibly write and play them to the best of our ability. I think a lot of people are going to be surprised.”
Cody added about the bands union with Fearless Records and the first track from the record released by the band Alive – “We couldn’t be more excited about signing to Fearless Records! We have such an incredible team behind us that already feels like family, it’s absolutely a dream come true. In the context of the record, Alive seemed like a natural choice to release first due to it possessing all the key ingredients that make up our band. However, it still only captures a small fraction of what the album holds. Lyrically, the song is a reality check to any naysayer who says our generation is hopeless. If you want to see change, be it.”
