We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Common War’s lyric video for their song “Death Stare” (watch it below). The track is taken from the band’s latest album Possess Yourself, which is available through Irish Voodoo Records. You can grab the album through iTunes, Amazon or Bandcamp, as well as stream it on Spotify.
Common War vocalist David Patrick commented on the song:
“‘Death Stare’ comes from a killer’s point of view. It’s somebody who’s disgusted with humanity and wants to take out their rage on the world. Even though we’re not all killers, I think everybody has repressed anger of some sort and we all wish we could just take it out on the world sometimes. This song was written to pay tribute to the idea that, sometimes, we all want to set the world on fire.”

About the band:
In 2015, Common War released The Search on Eulogy Recordings. Since then, a lot has happened. They’ve toured throughout the U.S. numerous times, and much of Canada, all while seizing the opportunity to play with bands such as Strung Out, Ignite, Cancer Bats, Stick To Your Guns, and more. Through these experiences, the band has grown and matured in both sound and outlook. Moreover, the addition of vocalist David Gualco has given new life and vigor to the stage. Common War has found their niche and evolved their sound into something they’ve been attempting to create since the beginning – something heavy, dark, and aggressive.
Not long after David joined the band, they had more than an album’s worth of music written. They entered the studio in February 2017 and began recording what would become their second full-length album, Possess Yourself. Dividing studio time between Paul Miner’s Buzzbomb Studios (Terror, H2O, Trapped Under Ice, New Found Glory, Death By Stereo) and guitarist JP Gericke’s home studio, the album came together effortlessly. Possess Yourself exhibits each member’s uniqueness and illustrates the workings of a group that knows exactly what they want to create. Working with a sound that is much more angry and dark than the prvious album, Common War is comfortable and truly proud of presenting what they’ve become to the world.
