Edgy rock with pop sensibility. If Coldplay, Keane, Switchfoot, and Jimmy Eat World all fell into a giant might just sound like The War. PLEASE take a minute to listen to our audio section! Visit for media and more info.


Music is about more than rock and roll for these guys, although their passion for the music is evident at every single live show. It is important to them to use their music as a platform to speak out for those who have no voice. Oppression and injustice are rampant in this world that we live in, and The War believes that we all have the ability to speak out against these things and bring about change.

The War formed in Chapel Hill, North Carolina during the Fall of 2003. Scott, Daniel, and Ken were students at UNC at the time.

Touring heavily, The War has had opportunities to open for nationally touring acts like Vertical Horizon, Cheyenne Kimball, Teddy Geiger, Saving Jane, Will Hoge, and various others.

The band has undergone a transition as they have recently completed their new EP, recorded with Ed Cash in Nashville, Tennessee. It was during the recording process that the band began to recognize their shared passion for global justice. The War has partnered with The Mocha Club to support Sudan regrowth, and has supported the International Justice Mission which has had amazing successes at freeing sex slaves. For more information, please visit and .

They have been sonically compared to Coldplay, The Fray, Keane, and Switchfoot, and they normally describe themselves saying that they are "edgy rock with pop sensibility." This new recording that The War has just completed sets a new tone of seriousness and the future looks bright for this heavily hopeful band.
