Published Nov 22, 2012Vancouver pop-punk crew Wars have been pretty quiet since issuing their Pacey from Mighty Ducks LP last year. Sure, the band offered up their live set The Unterrible Brightness of Leaning in January, but they've pretty well kept to the practice space throughout the rest of 2012. You can now sample the fruits of their labour, though, via the newly dropped 1979 EP.
The title track is a Jawbreaker-inspired romper, which likely means singer Chris Van Der Laan is huffing back a few Chesterfield Kings on the smoke break he's singing about. The song will appear again later this year on their impending Neville Say Never digital LP.
As for the EP exclusives, things get really fucking weird for the troupe's cover of Nirvana's "Territorial Pissings," which plays out over a series of serene six-string drones and Trooper-styled harmonies before the full band blast into the classic track ever so briefly.
You can sample the sessions down below via Wars' Bandcamp while waiting for Neville Say Never to arrive December 21 through Van Der Laan's own Boat Dreams from the Hill.
