Playthrough: “Who I Am” from Wage War!

Another from the Guitar World Sick Riffs series sees Wage War guitarist Cody Quistad get in on the action with “Who I Am” from the bands current album “Pressure” from his house in Nashville, Tennessee.

Playthrough: “Alive” from Wage War!

10th July 2021 will see Wage War join Stray From The Path and Great American Ghost in supporting The Ghost Inside for one night only at The Palladium in Worcester Massachusetts, providing of course that TGI can find a replacement bass player having axed Jim Riley following this incident.

Here’s a number of cuts from their set at Masquerade in
