Ignite release This Is A War video

Ignite have released a video for their track This Is A War.

The song features on the Californian outfit’s latest album A War Against You, out on January 8 via Century Media. It’ll be their first full-length release since 2006’s Our Darkest Days.

And guitarist Brian Balchack has credited producer Cameron Webb, who was also behind the desk on their last release, with driving the band forward on the new album.

He says: “Going into this, we all had expectations of how we wanted this record to sound – it was all based on our previous record.

“But the first day, just talking about guitar tones and drum sounds, Cameron had things he wanted to do completely differently from what we did on Our Darkest Days. That inspired all of us to change things up.”

Ignite will head out on the road next month in support of the record, which is available for pre-order.
