In preparation for their debut full-length album, Outlive You All, I Am War will release a limited 7″ vinyl on June 26th. It will feature the tracks “Bat Out Of Hell’ and the vinyl exclusive “Call Me Slugger.” This release is limited to 450 copies with 225 pressed on white vinyl and the other 225 on hot pink vinyl. I don’t know about you, but that hot pink edition sure has my panties all in a bunch. Seriously though, head over here to snag a pre-order before it’s too late.
If you still haven’t even heard of I Am War yet then you may have been living under a rock for some time now. The band is led by Alex Varkatzas of Atreyu fame and Bleeding Through’s Brandan Schieppati. To be honest, as excited as I was upon first hearing of I Am War in it’s early stages everything I have heard since musically is just not the sum of its parts. Especially considering their last efforts with their other bands were arguably the best releases of each band’s career.
Check out “Bat Out Of Hell” right here, and see for yourself. I just don’t see how an entire album of that will be too spectacular. I’m really hoping they prove me wrong though.
