War Tapes, a Los Angeles 4-piece, successfully creates epic anthems of angst, blending the attitude and edge of today's post-hard-core scene with an appealing nod to 80's new-wave and post-punk. All the while, War Tapes demonstrates a knack for creating huge hooks and sing-a-long choruses.

Front-man Neil Popkin engages audiences with youthful charisma and a passionate delivery. His dark, powerful stage presence is unpredictable, yet completely refined. Conversely, bassist Becca Popkin is stoic and graceful, with thoughtful bass lines filled with a melodic, driving force while simultaneously adding lush haunting harmonies that counter balance her brother's deep commanding vocals. Drawing on his punk-rock roots, the fervent Matt Bennett seamlessly combines his live energy with a wall-of-sound guitar style that adds an intense level of richness and precision that rivals the heroes he grew up worshipping, but is completely his own. The unique drumming approach of William Mohler brings a striking and stylistic dynamic to the band. His powerful rhythmic cadence is the breath and pulse of the band and the foundation for War Tapes' signature heart-quaking 'doom-pop'.
