“I don’t think anybody in this band wanted to write the same record again." - Briton Bond.

The new Wage War album 'Pressure' is out there in the world now, and it's a bit of a departure from what we're all used to from the lads. 

Inside the current issue of Rock Sound, we caught up with Wage War's Briton Bond and Cody Quistad to talk through their most ambitious release to date. Pick up your copy of the most recent issue of Rock Sound here.

“It was nice to shake things up,” shared Briton. “I don’t think anybody in this band wanted to write the same record again. If you put yourself through doing the same boring thing every day, then you are always going to produce that same boring thing. I think getting out of our comfort zone and trying new things really made this record a lot more special and helped us really come into our own creatively.”

“LA is very inspiring,” he added. “There are a lot of people doing a lot of things all the time. It never sleeps. So you get into that mindset where you want to create something as well. It’s like a living engine. Being in that definitely helped give us some mental clarity.”

“Drew (Fulk, producer) really brought the best out of our band too,” Cody added. “He was really good at keeping things interesting. We obviously know what our band is and what we’re known for but we wanted to make the sort of music that people didn’t think we could. In a way this felt like the make or break for us. This is an ever-changing market and bands can drop like flies. It was time to do something really dynamic.”
