Light in August
—formerly known as the Getaways—are here to premiere a new track: Get your exclusive listen of "Field of War
" above. The band also received some special assistance from AJ Perdomo
, lead vocalist of the Dangerous Summer
, who helped co-write "Field of War."
"'Field of War' is a very special song to us as a group. We wrote it about a friend who was very close to the band and passed away. We feel it's a powerful song for anyone who has lost somebody close to them," the band explains. "To be able to work on this track with AJ was a real privilege, as he was able to put his dimension on it a bit as well. His unique melodic writing style helped give the song a "grittiness" that helped convey a stronger sense of emotion and grief. We hope people draw some strength from this track. Super appreciative of PureVolume for featuring this song!"
"Field of War" will be available on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify starting on September 24. Light in August is currently writing their debut EP—stay tuned for updates from the band as it develops!
