War On Women. It’s not just a statement, it’s a movement. The group’s visceral, raw emotions have been fueled by spitfire anthems throughout the years. Live From Magpie Cage is unique in introducing more raw emotional responses. “Predator In Chief” rings with a beautiful voice, establishing a finesse driven foundation that packs the same urgent punch. “Silence Is The Gift” rolls out with the melodious riff, having a deeper introspective mood thanks to the stripped down acoustic presence. The silences of the vocals allow for reflections to be made and inquiries to be sought. What War On Women bring to the table with this acoustic EP is a subtle power shift with the rising crescendos of emotion swaying with the guitars. Take a listen to the exclusive stream below!
“It felt right to capture these songs live. Just like our acoustic shows, these are reworked and re-imagined versions of the original songs. Simple and vulnerable, one guitar and one voice, still pissed – so go VOTE!” – War On Women
War On Women follow up their 2018 full-length Capture The Flag with this acoustic EP recorded live at J Robbins’ Magpie Cage Studio (Jawbreaker, Against Me!). Live From Magpie Cage captures War On Women in a raw stripped down form while still maintaining the same urgency and intensity of the original versions. The digital download comes with a bonus track that does not appear on the 7″.
