MOUTH FOR WAR DROPS 'CAPTIVATED'' MUSIC VIDEO
Brutal metalcore practitioners MOUTH FOR WAR are pleased to unleash their new video for “Captivated” from their brand new full-length Bleed Yourself - out now.
Catharsis builds community. As if conducting group scream therapy, MOUTH FOR WAR incites a collective release of emotion set to a soundtrack of metal intensity, pit-splitting hardcore spirit, and earth-rumbling grooves. The Colorado quintet — vocalist Trae Roberts, drummer Mason Sego, guitarists Gabe Moya and Jonah Starbuck, and bassist Michael Guglielmi — rallies listeners together around unflinchingly honest and uncontainable bursts of aggression and emotion. After earning praise from Outburn, No Echo, and many more, they hold nothing back on Bleed Yourself, their second proper full-length and MNRK Heavy label debut.
A compelling video featuring animation by Torey Kervick and artwork by Caleb Butcher, “Captivated” stands as a pulverizing album centerpiece. Elaborates Roberts, “‘Captivated’ is a song with a strange lyrical theme in a style I've never really written before, so we knew this would be the perfect track to bring our friends Caleb and Torey in to make a crazy visual for. I wrote this track about a mushroom trip where I felt like for the first time I was visited by my late sister's spirit, oddly enough through the eyes of my cat Adelaide. I love how this video came out and we're so excited to share it with you.”

MORE ABOUT MOUTH FOR WAR
Hailing from Colorado Springs, Colorado, MOUTH FOR WAR focuses on manifesting crushing breakdowns laced with visceral grooves that echo somber melodies.
Forged in 2019, MOUTH FOR WAR put out their debut EP An Ear Kept To The Ground and immediately sunk their teeth into the world of touring that was unfortunately cut short by COVID-19. Where the pandemic dragged other bands under, MOUTH FOR WAR used their downtime to formulate their debut LP, Life Cast In Glass, a collection of grieving songs. Released on 1126 Records, Life Cast In Glass helped propel the band’s notoriety and curated their next steps into becoming a national act. The band has since taken on the entire US with bands such as Bodysnatcher, Boundaries, and ZAO, as has shared stages Knocked Loose, Malevolence, and others, playing numerous sold out shows and taking crowds by proverbial storm.
