MakeWar are back with a new surprise EP, titled Stay, and it’s out now! If you loved Get It Together as much as we did, you’re in for a treat. The four songs are lifted from that recording session, with two being directly from Get It Together, and two are unreleased outtakes. The most satisfying part about this news is that you can listen to the entire EP right now on your preferred digital service.
Plus, Fat Wreck pressed this into some kickass vinyl, and it’s available to ship immediately from their
webstore! Or, you can grab it from MakeWar at one of their upcoming shows, which include performing at the FEST, and with Hot Water Music!
Here’s what vocalist/guitarist Jose Prieto had to say about the lead single, “Stay,” below:
Stay is a song about my dog Bruno. Bruno was the best dog. Well…he was the worst puppy and then he became the best dog. I had Bruno from when he was born until he was 3 years old. I took Bruno to my parent’s house in Venezuela when I moved from Florida to New York. I can’t have a dog in New York City, I thought. Well, it turns out I could have brought Bruno to New York with me but when I went to get him my parents wouldn’t let him go. They had fallen in love with Bruno and said I couldn’t take him away from them. Bruno and I started growing apart. We used to facetime every now and then. When I visited my parents Bruno was there but every time I left I felt that he was disappointed that I didn’t take him with me. Bruno passed about 3 years ago from stomach cancer. We had one last facetime session right before he died and Stay is about that conversation that day. We talked about playing catch one last time and how much I wanted to show him New York. Also, the song has my friend Vinnie Caruana (I am the avalanche / Movielife) singing all the “dog” parts.
