Joplin, MO-based The Order of Elijah is turning to Indiegogo to help independently fund their upcoming album, War at Heart. To help with the project, the quartet released a new lyric video for the jammer “Dethrone,” which you can check out here on HM.

Vocalist Shannon Low spoke with HM about the project:

After touring our 2013 album, Dethrone, for a year, we sat down to write a new album and material just came pouring out. We had mutual separation from Rottweiler Records, and have since hit the ground running. This Indiegogo campaign is awesome because it helps us remain on our feet as an independent artist while giving our fans a way to be a direct part of the album.

The band will leave this August with A Sight to See for a Midwest tour.
