Today, HM is proud to premiere the debut EP for War Prayer, Misguided. The album is slated to drop tomorrow, Oct. 8, and was tracked by Aric Ficek and mixed and mastered by Jake Watson featuring artwork by Jake Beaver.

We spoke with vocalist Matt Orr about the EP, asking him to explain the release. He said it’s:

“Five tracks that reflect my emotions. (The album) is rooted in personal and social frustrations toward experiences in my life and the lives of people close to me.”

This is the first music from the newly-renovated band; they formed in 2013 in Fargo, ND before switching names due to member changes earlier this year.

The band will be playing two release shows for the EP next week:

  • 10/15 — Des Moines @ Underground Rockshop
  • 10/16 — Minneapolis @ TBD

I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
