Virginia folk-punk-americana-etc artist Mike Frazier is premiering his new single and music video “War On Love” right here on Dying Scene today. The song is the most recent track, and first video released from Frazier’s debut EP “Virginia Son.” Feast your eyes and ears upon it while you check out Frazier’s upcoming tour dates below!
Of the track, Frazier says,
“I’ve found that in America, we really don’t care what happens to give us the illusion of safety. Politicians and newscasters create pandemonium and use terror as a way to stir news. Americans have this impression that their “freedom” is constantly under attack, so no amount of drone strikes or innocent people tortured or killed can really stir us. We just put blind faith in the people above us and let them run with whatever we think will keep us safe. And this isn’t just from an outside lens. On the home front, we are being fed the same fear propaganda. The things we learn in the classroom, the things we see on television, the things we see in stores and advertisements – they all lead us to believe that we’re in a war for our lives. And they’re right. We are facing a war – a war on compassion, a war on knowledge, and a war on love.
“Virginia Son” is due out August 11th on Geneva Records. and was recorded at Valencia Studios with Will Beasley (Dry Jacket, Turnstile, Brigades). The video was directed and produced by Burke Cullinane.
