wars announce new EP 

‘As Within /// So Without’

Set for release 25th Jan

(A Wolf At Your Door Records)

WARS released a new single for a new era earlier this year in the form of ‘Little Death’, which was their first music to be released via A Wolf At Your Door Records. Now they’ve announced a brand new EP ‘As Within /// So Without’, which will be released on 25th January, 2019.

A theme of the inner workings of the mind working in tandem with one’s outward reality is one which permeates all four tracks of the EP and its title refers to that very vein of thought. “‘As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul…’ is a quote from Hermes, the Greek god of transitions and travel, Principle of Correspondence and is one of seven principles which make up a sort of guide to a more meaningful life,” Rob explains, in reference to the moniker. “Some of us come to live with this constant monologue in our minds, one that berates us, and tells us we are not good enough over and over till we barely hear it any more. And even though we may not recognise it, that tumult is reflected onto the things in front of us. When all we feel is hell, hell is all we see. In this idea may also lie the answer to the thankless task we all have of living inside ourselves.” 

‘As Within /// So Without’ marks the beginning of a new chapter for wars as they look towards the release of a second album later in 2019. This EP follows up the release of the band’s 2017 debut album ‘We Are Islands, After All’. In the time since its launch, they’ve been crafting something new, evolving and changing, ready for the next step.
