LAGS – “War Was Over” (Stereogum Premiere)

Post-hardcore gets a fresh breath of life with “War Was Over,” the explosive new track from up-and-coming Rome band LAGS. Though based in Italy, LAGS share a similar sound to seminal American post-punk and hardcore forerunners Glassjaw and Fugazi; maybe that’s the influence of drummer Andrew Howe, an internationally competitive long-jumper and sprinter born in Los Angeles? “War Was Over” is taken from the band’s debut full-length release, Pilot, due in October. Judging by this track, the album is destined to be riddled with angsty sing-shout lyrics and furiously violent music. Listen below.

Pilot is released 11/6 via To Lose La Track. You can stream it in full here.
