The Automated People EP features the band’s lead single, “Fear of Loss.” The official video premiered on Paste Magazine, who called it “a stunning visual.” Says the band, “Fear of Loss delves into the beginning stages of one cycle, specifically one that happens during the exuberance of youth when all good things electrify you and motivate you toward the thrill of danger.” The song starts out with humming synths, and slowly builds to a lilting rock swing by the chorus, hitting the listener with a wall of emotion and sound. The band partnered with LaCie Harddrives, along with a crew of 25+ people, to bring the video to life.
The War on Peace is a Chicago-based three piece that fuses pop, electronic, and dance elements into a vibrant, pulsing sonic landscape. Since the band’s inception, the focus has been on bringing a consistent stream of digital sounds to the airwaves. With two full length releases behind them, they continue their collaborative efforts entering into new domains of prolific creation with their upcoming 6-song EP, “Automated People”. Their process now translated into a high-energy and engaging live show, the three deliver sounds not soon forgotten.
