My Chemical Romance stan? Can’t get enough of Falling In Reverse? Well, you’ve just found your new favourite band of misfits.
Blending the bold drama of the former with the eccentric bounce of the latter, World War Me have crafted a brilliant debut. ‘Don't Hold Your Breath’ encapsulates all of that to a tee – and is absolute hook central – while ‘Mr Misery’ showcases the self-deprecating, troubled and sometimes unhinged performance of frontman Stephen Krypel.
Elsewhere ‘Fire And Flames’ is all-out fun with an almost Motown vibe, and ‘Warzone’ ups the ante with a chorus of violins. This is a superb start.
