When asked what it means to perform live, Ordine states, “Pure energy!!! It’s better than any other feeling I know.” West puts it this way, “an intense energy that compares to nothing else!”
Late last year, Weapons of Anew released their powerful debut single and video, “Killshot,” via OK!Good Records. “Killshot” made the Top 5 most added record in the country at radio on the Metal Contraband Chart and picked up 24 additional stations on the CMJ Loud Rock Chart. Upon completing this initial run of tour dates, the band will complete their debut recording with producer James Murphy (Havok, Necromancing The Stone, Product of Hate).
The band members are psyched to have people hear Weapons of Anew (WoA) music, West continues, “We are a solid unit, packed into a big ole can of whoop ass! Ordine steps forward and says, “We are a powerhouse! I really believe this band lives up to its name. Everyone in this band is like a weapon with their instruments. It’s an all out assault on the senses!”

Enter Spread Eagle vocalist Ray West. “The chorus wasn’t written as you hear it now until Ray came in,” Ordine said. “I heard Ray sing the verses in this sleek kind of modal way the first time we ever played together and – ZAP!!! – I was instantly connected! The chorus pretty much jumped out of my head and onto my fret board. I knew this is what my new band was supposed to sound like!”
piece of music.”Weapons of Anew gives Ordine and his bandmates the opportunity to expand and expound upon their musical vocabularies. Whereas Ordine’s past pursuits focused on his love of old school thrash, this band’s lush, layered songs go beyond hard rock and metal, delving into such sounds and styles as progressive and R&B.
After whetting fans’ appetites with “Killshot,” Weapons of Anew’s will soon announce more information on their upcoming debut full-length album.
