World War Me was founded in late fall of 2015, exploding into the music scene like one hundred cannons firing in unison. While they didn't immediately have music to show to the world, that didn't stop them from getting their foot in the door within their local scene as quickly as possible, playing a series of shows within the Illinois area throughout the winter that followed, building a reputation for their blend of nostalgic, emotionally fueled pop-punk and contemporary, catchy and anthemic alternative rock and post-hardcore. Their DIY attitude persevered throughout the barren and bitter Midwestern winter, culminating in the release of their debut single, "Fire and Flames," which burned through the inches of thick ice and frigid snow to light the local scene-and the world at large-in an all-consuming blaze. Borrowing their name from a time-tested and revered From First to Last anthem, World War Me's love for nostalgia is unabashed-proudly bearing prominent influence from artists like My Chemical Romance and the style of heart-on-their-sleeves alt-emo Fall Out Boy forgotten in the late 2000's. However, they also infuse their penchant for yesteryear's sound and style with a moderate dose of contemporary head-strong, riff-driven and ultra-catchy song structure, especially prevalent in their sharp, lacerating riffs and choruses that stay ingrained in the listener's head for weeks on end: all this manifested itself in the band's sophomore single, "War Zone," an onslaught of dissonant, crunchy and heavy riff-work with more than enough energy to keep the band's peppy, punky attitude unblemished. "War Zone" hit the streets June 24th of 2016, and, alongside it, the announcement that they would be an early addition to SharpTone Records' blossoming roster. Coupled with this gargantuan news, "War Zone" is a summertime hit that resonated in the ears and headphones of fans worldwide for the months to follow
