Today (April 8th), War Curse has released a new digital single, “Only” – a cover version of the Anthrax classic! Hear “Only” now at: youtu.be/lYj4S-tylJM

Justin Roth (guitar) comments: “Murphy and I have always been big John Bush fans, for his work in both Armored Saint and Anthrax. When we were approached to do a ‘Slay At Home’ performance for Metal Injection, we wanted to do something a little unexpected, but something that thrash metal fans would still recognize. After kicking around a few ideas, ‘Only’ seemed like a great choice for Blaine’s voice and a fun song to learn. The response to the initial performance was overwhelmingly positive, including a nod of approval from Charlie Benante himself, which was pretty damn cool (even if he leaked it a day early, oops). We hope we did the song justice and hope everyone enjoys it.”

Formed in 2013 in Cincinnati, OH, War Curse is forged in tradition and unconcerned with industry trends, walking a path blazed by thrash metal titans of yesteryear while creating a distinct imprint of their own. The band unleashed their debut full-length Final Days (Static Tension Recordings / Iron Mouth) in 2015, with media hailing it as “catchy, quick to the point, precisely executed with plenty of shredding solos, and enough punk/hardcore grit to give it a snarling edge” (NineCircles.co). Their sophomore record – 2019′s Eradication (Svart Records) – saw the band “confidently mesh their old school values with modern sensibilities, addictively crunchy riffs and infectious song-writing” (TeethOfTheDivine.com). High energy shows across the world garnered War Curse the reputation of being a must-see live act, captivating fans young and old with their thoughtfully written, no-holds-barred brand of metal. The band’s true-to-roots Bay Area sound has resonated with crowds and media alike, giving War Curse the ability to transcend genre lines and appeal to everyone from diehards to casuals. Simply put, War Curse is a sleeping giant ready to emerge as the next torchbearer.

War Curse‘s upcoming album – and Blacklight Media Records / Metal Blade Records debut – will surely please fans and critics once again upon its release in 2021. Stay tuned for more news about War Curse coming soon!
