Car Seat Headrest preceded their European tour with the final studio release of new single ‘War Is Coming (If You Want It)’ this week.
The Virginia outfit had previously made a ‘March Mix’ demo of the song available for earlier in the month on their Bandcamp page, with all the proceeds going to the Transgender Law Center.
The final version – which is vastly different to the ‘March Mix’ released earlier – features a more polished sound than lead singer Will Toledo and co’s traditionally lo-fi sound and, according to Toledo, has the simple message about not murdering people with lines like “Stop spinning lines that justify the lure of suicide, And reach out your hands, And save someone’s life.”
The song is available on all platforms, including their Bandcamp page for $2 with the funds raised continuing to support the TLC.
