The Skinny: Rise Records is excited to announce the signing of War Generation. This brand new Los Angeles based band features singer Jon Bunch, formerly of Sense Field, Further Seems Forever and Reason To Believe. Jon has teamed up with songwriter Brad Lehman of Maylene and the Sons of Disaster and Craig from Ignite, and the outcome does not disappoint.

Their new album, Start Somewhere Never Surrender, is a perfect blend of melodic hardcore and rock, not unlike Rise Against, Further Seems Forever, and AFI. Start Somewhere Never Surrender is in stores on September 3rd. Listen to a new song entitled, “Done and Gone” just below!
