The independent four-piece rock back, Message From Sylvia are ecstatic to begin unleashing their killer music to the masses via the premiere of their “Heart Of War” lyric video. Fronted by vocalist Matthew Nevitt, the group is rounded out by the Lopez-Smith brothers (Zach, Issac and Dane) who together hold down Message From Sylvia’s instruments.

Lead singer Matthew Nevitt had this to say about the song:

“We feel that the song ‘Heart of War’ was the perfect launch for Message From Sylvia. This single exemplifies all our heads coming together to complete a single we as a band are all really proud of! There is no (one) underlying meaning to the song. Although we all have a great attachment to it, we want the listener to find the meaning for themselves, as it applies to them – in their lives. That’s the beauty of being able to put pen to paper. We Thank our fans and our newest viewers / listeners…. Pure Grain Audio – you ROCK and Thank You for supporting us with this premiere!”
