In a time when the country is more divided than ever, Los Angeles based Vintage Trouble teamed up with producer Matt Salazar and Mad Muse Studios to honor the 50th anniversary of “War” by Edwin Starr, a powerful message that begs the question: “War, what is it good for?” Answer: Absolutely nothing.
After being a little too forthright for The Temptations, “War” hit the top of the charts with Edwin Starr August 29th, 1970, sitting atop the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks. A Grammy win and five decades later, Vintage Trouble decided it was their turn to relay the message of “War” to the world.
Like most artists, times have not been on the band’s side this year. 2020 marks Vintage Trouble’s 10th anniversary, with a European & US tour canceled due to Covid-19. When In Flight Music Group CMO, Lucas Flood reached out to the band about linking with producer Matt Salazar and his Mad Muse Studios, everyone jumped at the opportunity to create something together.
