Hard rock band, Weapons Of Anew (WOA), have released their new song, “Break The Ties”, on all major platforms. It is the first song released with new members, vocalist Richie Hume and drummer Lun’iah Fontana. The new song is the first to be released from 2023’s upcoming release, The Art Of War. Stream the single hereand watch the first BraveWords music video below.
It was the first song written for The Art of War. It was born when guitarist Freddy Ordine and Logan Mader (Machine Head, Once Human) hit it off while touring together. WOA was auditioning producers and Freddy, a big fan of early Machine Head tracks, invited Logan to hang out at their studio.
“I couldn’t be happier with how this song came together and turned out,” Ordine exclaims. “It had our New York attitude and Logan’s west coast vibe. We really nailed the direction I wanted to take the guns!! Logan was just amazing to work with!!!!”
“Break The Ties” is about eliminating evil and being in a space more together with everything. “It’s crazy to me that a year after this song was written, [bassist] Reno and I moved to Florida and rebuilt Weapons,” adds Ordine. “I guess the subconscious is a motherfucker!!! If we had only known or listened sooner!!!”
The Tampa-based hard rock band from New Jersey released their debut album, The Collision Of Love And Hate, in 2017 and have toured extensively in support of it, including opening for Scott Stapp, Alter Bridge and Tesla. .
WOA recorded a second album for release in 2020, with the first song released, being a cover of The Chainsmokers “Sick Boy” dropping September 2020, reaching #25 on Billboard Active Rock, #18 Billboard Indicator and #27 Mediabase Active Rock. It currently has 1.2 million streams. The release was delayed due to COVID and in mid-2021 WOA made personnel changes and re-recorded The Art Of War songs.
WOA are Richie Hume (vocals), Freddy Ordine (guitar), Reno (bass), Kevin Hicklin (guitar) and Lun’iah Fontana (drums).
