Weapons of Anew Announce New Single 'Break The Ties' With New Singer Richie Hume Due 9/16

Tampa Bay Hard Rock outfit Weapons of Anew has announced the release of new music with the song “Break The Ties” dropping on September 16. It will be the first song with new members, singer Richie Hume and drummer Lun’iah Fontana. The new song is the first from the forthcoming 2023 release, The Art of War

 This was the first song written for The Art of War. It came about as guitarist Freddy Ordine and Logan Mader (Machine Head, Once Human) hit it off while on tour together. WOA was auditioning producers and Freddy, a huge fan of early Machine Head material, invited Logan to spend time at their studio.

“I couldn’t be happier with how this song came together and turned out,” exclaims Ordine. “It had our New York attitude and Logan’s west coast vibe. We really nailed the direction I wanted to take Weapons in. Logan was just amazing to work with!”

 “Break The Ties” is about cutting away the bad and being in a more together space with everything. “It’s crazy to me that a year after this song was written, [bassist] Reno and I moved to Florida and rebuilt Weapons,” adds Ordine. “I guess subconsciousness is a mother f*cker! Had we only known or listened sooner!”

 This Tampa-based hard rock outfit, originally from New Jersey, released their debut, The Collision of Love and Hate, in 2017 and toured heavily to support it, including opening for Scott Stapp, Alterbridge, and Tesla. 

 WOA recorded a second album for release in 2020, with the first song released, being a cover of The Chainsmokers “Sick Boy” dropping in September 2020, reaching #25 on Billboard Active Rock, #18 Billboard Indicator, and #27 Mediabase Active Rock. It currently has 1.2 million streams. The release was delayed due to COVID and in mid-2021 WOA made their personnel changes and re-recorded the songs for The Art of War.

 WOA are Richie Hume (vocals), Freddy Ordine (guitar), Reno (bass), Kevin Hicklin (guitar), and Lun’iah Fontana (drums).
