Today, War Prayer (Bandcamp) is proud to premiere the first single, “Misguided,” from their upcoming EP of the same name. The Minneapolis-based hardcore band used to be known as Atrocities, and the new EP represents their first music in the new direction. We spoke with vocalist Matt Orr about the track’s message:

“‘Misguided’ is a release of bitterness toward a system that uses religious establishments to fund closed door agendas. Establishments that damage the lives and well being of innocent people that look for acceptance within organized religion.”

The new EP is scheduled to drop on Friday, Oct. 7.

The Pop-Punk Silver Lining

"I would hope from all of this madness we will come out of it and we're better equipped to understand and have compassion for each other." Releasing a new album during an historical epoch is certainly unique, and, for Neck Deep's 'All Distortions are Intentional,' the band looks to the future with a hopeful – and, yes, unique – approach.

Sciarretto talks to us from her own home in New Jersey about how the pandemic is affecting artists, their process of undergoing transition, and how it's going to change music – maybe in great and unexpected ways.
