War Stories Deliver Video For "Hangin' On" As Commentary On The State Of Our Nation

San Diego foursome War Stories are known for an emotionally charged and uncompromisingly honest blend of alternative, dark rock and brooding folk. Singer Evan Robinson’s sincere lyrics and swells of conviction deliver insight of perspective, reflection and questioning, and for their single “Hangin’ On,” War Stories have delivered a video that captures the song’s brutally honest commentary that reflects the current state of our nation.

The song—released as a digital single on September 25—spreads Robinson’s vocals over the guitar work of Reid Kirby and tight locking rhythms of bassist Eric Mace and drummer Adam Barker. Lyrically, “Hangin’ On” addresses today’s social and economic climate in the United States. Robinson’s words resonate on the troubles and challenges the nation is faced with and the dire need for change. In an effort to do their part in helping change, War Stories will donate a portion of all proceeds from every single download to support Music Saves Lives.

The passion of War Stories is best captured in their live experience where the band is able to make a direct connection with listeners. In support of the new album, digital single and video release, the band has announced the following confirmed shows, with a complete west coast tour announcement to follow:

  • Thursday, October 23 The Beauty Bar San Diego, CA
  • Saturday, October 25 The Coach House with William Tell San Juano Capistono, CA
  • Friday, November 7 Barnes & Noble In-Store Performance Temecula, CA
  • Wednesday, November 12 U31 Presented by 91x Loudspeaker San Diego, CA
