Progressive indie rockers, WAR GAMES have released the first single titled, "Foundations" which is off their upcoming full-length. The track was premiered last week via Absolute Punk and is now available via itunes (HERE) along with all major digital distributors including Spotify and Bandcamp.
Guitarist Ian Provost states "'Foundations' is one of the first songs we wrote for the album. We feel it's a great spokesperson for it in that it represents the overall feel of the record being being dark yet uplifting, like there's a light at the end of the tunnel!" Previous engineer for War Games, Ryan Sitkowski (lead guitarist of Motionless in White) continues "I have spent countless hours listening through the song 'Foundations' and still have yet to get bored or sick of it." Josh Balz (War Games' manager and keyboardist of Motionless in White) closes with "'Foundations' is a full sounding, well produced and well written song".
In addition to the release of "Foundations", War Games also reveal the cover artwork of the full-length, Holding Patterns, due out March 10th, 2015 and announce a pre-sale of the album via Etsy HERE. "Now that we have all the recording done, we've been listening to the songs in the order that they will be on the album and it flows really well. It feels cohesive!" mentioned Ian, which was concerning him since the album was tracked at three different studios. He continues, "We've put a lot of work into the record over the last year and a half, and our CD release show March 6th at The Met in Pawtucket, RI is going to be the perfect way to wrap up the last year of our lives." The release show will allow attendees to get their hands on a tangible copy of the Holding Patterns full-length days prior to the actual release. War Games will also be touring the UK in support of the release. Dates and info are now available below!

War Games, a five piece Rock Band from Southern Massachusetts USA, demonstrate their continuous ability to uplift and inspire listeners with themes of finding yourself and not giving up on what means most to you. Formally Another Option the band's debut EP 'Mountains", produced by Ace Enders of The Early November, laid the foundations for the band's sound and established a strong fan base. Though the members of War Games had been rigorously touring the US/UK together for years under their former name, the band's first official tour as War Games was a succession of 25 dates on the Ourstage.com stage of the 2012 Vans Warped Tour. Since Warped Tour, the band have set out on multiple US tours, recorded an Acoustic EP and worked to release their first full-length album.
