Modern Life Is War: Witness To Be Re-Issued

9.4.15


Modern Life Is War have just announced a series of 10-year anniversary shows for this coming June & July. Where the band is set to play Witness in its entirety. Originally released in early 2005, Modern Life Is War's second full-length album, Witness, was not only musical progression for the band, but artistic perfection. Hailed as "quite possibly the greatest hardcore album of our generation" (Sputnik Music), the album followed Modern Life Is War's 2003 debut My Love. My Way. The album Witness is also their artistic journey into the soul of personal rebellion, an introspective gaze into the bitter exile of their own lost generation. The album features some of Modern Life Is War's most recognized tracks: The Outsiders (AKA Hell is for Heroes Part I) and D.E.A.D.R.A.M.O.N.E.S, screaming the words that many wish they could say, in the name of the pain, beauty and the hardship of living.

Following on from the tour, now ten years later, the landmark LP has gotten a complete re-issue as well as a spectacular remastering by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. Packaging for both CD and vinyl formats of Witness has also been drastically improved; for the first time ever, the vinyl version is presented in a deluxe gatefold jacket with a 12-by-12-inch 28-page booklet. While the CD version comes in new eco-friendly packaging, both formats also include additional liner notes from listeners worldwide.

Here is the opening track, The Outsider, which is taken from the seminal album.
 

Modern Life Is War's UK and European tour, starts this week, the band will return to the states to play a handful of Witness 10-year anniversary shows where they'll perform the album in its entirety. Tickets for these shows will be on sale on Friday, April 3rd - stay tuned to Modern Life Is War's Facebook page for more information.
