Baltimore’s War On Women were born screaming—at the world, at the status quo, in the face of oppression. The band’s forthcoming album Capture The Flag calcifies that rage, and no one in its wake is safe. Much more than a collection of songs or sonic experiment, Capture The Flag is a call to action that cannot be ignored.
Today, War On Women have unveiled the second single off of their forthcoming LP. The song, titled “Lone Wolves,” is relevant and vital, touching on mental health issues and the gun violence epidemic that’s plaguing America. With lyrics like “They don’t care if you live, they don’t care if you die, it’s only ever been about control,” there’s no time more crucial than the present to incite change. Listen to “Lone Wolves” here.
With hundreds of shows and years of activism behind them, Capture The Flag finds War On Women more dogged than ever. As is their modus operandi, War On Women have not stopped at the music. Capture The Flag will also receive its own college-level companion workbook. Inspired by the academic community’s fervent embrace of their self-titled record, War On Women have decided to not only join the conversation, but also facilitate it. This workbook—which will be available for preorder with Capture The Flag—includes a lyric sheet and song dissections, relevant quotes, a reading list, directory of resources, and national support hotline numbers.
War On Women are neither a crew of young bucks nor a contagion of seasoned legends. They don’t fit neatly into metalloid machismo or hulking hardcore tropes. They have nothing to prove, and there’s nothing more delightfully dangerous than that.
