Bringing their own style and level of aggression to the Sonic Temple Arts and Music Festival is the Florida based Metal act WAGE WAR. The group, which is composed of vocalist Briton Bond, guitarist/vocalist Cody Quistad, guitarist Seth Blake, bassist Chris Gaylord and drummer Stephen Kluesener, formed in Ocala, Florida, in 2013 and instantly started playing all over the area. After getting signed to Fearless Records, Wage War linked up with Andrew Wade (Neck Deep, Motionless In White) and Jeremy McKinnon (A Day To Remember) who produced their 2015 debut Blueprints together and returned to produce the sophomore full-length Deadweight

Festival Line ups

Shortly after the release of Blueprints, Wage War implanted themselves as a driving force in their style. In addition to their own brand of aggression, Wage War has the ability to add harmonies that are memorable, but not detrimental to their “heavy” persona that some fans were immediately drawn to.

In a heavy music scene that’s increasingly formulatic, Wage War prides themselves on the fact that they listen to a diverse range of music. For instance, the song ‘Johnny Cash’ recalls the country tradition of paying homage to a pioneer of a genre while still retaining the heaviness of the act. “We get called metalcore a lot but we’ve never pledged allegiance to any genre because we always want to do something beyond that in the sense that we just listen to what we love and try to incorporate that into Wage War.”


The band recently posted, via their Facebook page, that they are in the studio working on their Third Studio album with Producer Drew Fulk
Drew Fulk has recorded the likes of Motionless In White, Lil Peep, Crown The Empire, and many more. With as much raw emotion and intensity as they put into their first two albums, We have no doubt that the next one will be their best yet.  The band recently had released a video for their song “Low” in January, This being their first song that they’ve released since their 2017 album “Deadweight”
