Wage War Premieres New Song & Video “Don’t Let Me Fade Away” From Upcoming New Album “Deadweight”

Ocala, FL’s metalcore outfit Wage War premieres a new song and video titled “Don’t Let Me Fade Away”, taken from the upcoming new album “Deadweight”, which will be out in stores August 04th via Fearless Records. Recording sessions for the release took place with Andrew Wade (A Day To Remember, The Word Alive) and A Day To Remember vocalist Jeremy McKinnon handling the production duties.

Check out now “Don’t Let Me Fade Away” below.

States guitarist/vocalist Cody Quistad:

“We are so thrilled to finally announce our new album, Deadweight. We’ve put so much time, effort, and emotion into making what we think is the best and truest Wage War album. Lyrically, it’s the most vulnerable and honest we’ve ever done. Musically, we really pushed ourselves on the heavy and melodic sides of our band. “Stitch” was an insight to the heavy and now we give you a melodic answer, ‘Don’t Let Me Fade Away.’ This record was exceptionally hard to pick singles for because of how much time and work we put into making every song a great one. ‘Don’t Let Me Fade Away‘ was always a stand out from the beginning. It’s all the elements that make up our band in one song, and in a perfected state. We’re very excited for all that’s ahead!”

“We are very excited about the next single, the meaning the lyrics have to me, and to the people who hear it, is very profound. I feel like we all have a dream that we should follow, sometimes it’s easy to lose sight of what really matters in life. This video captures all of the emotions we put into live shows, and is a true representation of the energy connected to our music.”

Victory Records Comments On A Day To Remember Lawsuit

Victory Records has issued a response to a recent article in Kerrang! Magazine referencing the litigation filed by A Day To Remember. The label comments:

“Victory Records is compelled to provide the following information to the public, specifically in response to untrue statements made by band leader Jeremy McKinnon. Victory did not file this lawsuit, A Day To Remember did so in order to avoid their remaining recording commitments to Victory. In fact, Victory was blindsided by the lawsuit that the band began to surreptitiously prepare as early as 2010.

“The core issue in the lawsuit is how many ‘albums’ A Day To Remember delivered under its agreement with Victory Records. Not once before filing the lawsuit did ADTR claim to Victory or to the public that they had satisfied their 5-album recording commitment. They never asserted that Victory’s efforts concerning the marketing, promotion and distribution of the albums was anything less than stellar. During the years ADTR considered itself a Victory artist, they never complained about royalties.

“Including the recent article in Kerrang!, virtually every press outlet that has covered ADTR’s album releases since 2006 have reported the number of full-length studio albums ADTR released in total – this includes the three albums released by Victory (2007’s ‘For Those Who Have Heart,’ 2009’s ‘Homesick,’ 2010’s ‘What Separates Me From You’), ‘Old Record’ (a 2008 re-release of a previous ADTR album on Indianola Records as part of a separate agreement), 2013’s ‘Common Courtesy’ (the ‘fifth’ album), and now ‘Bad Vibrations’ (the ‘sixth’ Album). ADTR’s inherently absurd claim that they delivered 13 ‘albums’ in the first two years of their agreement with Victory defies common sense, logic and reality.

“Victory continued to pay A Day To Remember royalties even after the band filed this lawsuit. Victory ceased paying royalties when ADTR interfered with Victory’s merchandise sales to Hot Topic which was well into the lawsuit. Victory asserted a ‘Set-off’ counterclaim in the lawsuit, which in this situation permits the withholding of payments that may be otherwise due based on ADTR’s material breaches of their agreement – which includes selling merchandise and music via ADTR.com, to other retailers, and refusing to deliver two commitment albums to Victory. As a result of these breaches, Victory sustained damages in the millions of dollars.

“In August 2011 (two months after ADTR filed the lawsuit) Victory made its first of many settlement offers to resolve this dispute. They were all rejected by the band. ADTR rejected Victory’s settlement proposals again in 2013 and instead self-released ‘Common Courtesy.’ This was a very obvious indicator that they never had any intention of settling their lawsuit.”

An official statement from A Day To Remember has not yet been released. We’ll update this story if the band responds.
