The weekend draws nigh, so here's a brand new tune from War Chief to either ease you weekend warriors into two days of relaxation or help propel you through your shift or shifts, if Saturday and Sunday are workdays for you.
The track, "30 Pieces," was recorded at the band's Dec. 29 show at Revolution. Frontman Grayson Shelton said via email that it was the first time they'd played it and "so it's a little rough."
I don't know, it sounds really good to these ears. It's big-sounding guitar rock, the mix is spot-on, it feels a lot shorter than its 7:18 running time and it's still got that refreshing new-song smell.
