New Music Friday: Black Veil Brides, Wage War and Wargasm

It’s another week of epic stuff for New Music Friday!

Black Veil Brides are back with their killer new single ‘Scarlet Cross’. Plus, Wage War have released a B-side from their debut album and WARGASM have dropped a new single.

NEw single from BLack Veil Brides

Black Veil Brides have dropped their new single ‘Scarlet Cross’. The track comes with everything we love about BVB with a killer vocal performance from front man Andy Biersack, a huge sing-a-long chorus and a shredding guitar solo! The track is the first single off their upcoming sixth album ‘The Phantom Tomorrow’.

New b-side from Wage War

Florida’s own Wage War have released a B-side from their debut album ‘Blueprints’. ‘Surrender’ shows off everything that made their debut one of the strongest metalcore releases of the past decade. It’s stacked fill of epic djenty riffage and a super heavy breakdown that’ll have you moshing around your house!

Wargasm release ‘Rage All over’

Modern nu-metelers WARGASM have dropped their sixth single ‘Rage All Over’. The duo never fail to impress with each new track being heavier and more headbang worthy than the last. They’ll be bringing this and their other epic tracks to the Avalanche Stage at DL2021, do not sleep on this band!
