Holy Wars have announced they’ve officially signed with Pale Chord Music. The band consists of the duo of Kat Leon and guitarist/producer Nick Perez. Along with the news of joining the likes of Spiritbox, and Thousand Below on the label, the band debuted the video below for their new single “Dues Ex Machina“.
Leon offered the following on the song:
“‘Deus Ex Machina‘ was inspired by my love of psychology and how fascinating the brain is. The God of the human machine. Deus Ex Machina meaning God from the Machine really helped shape the message of what I was wanting to say lyrically in this song, how our personal narrative is powerful.
We often rewrite our stories as the hero’s tale but we very possibly could be the villain in another’s. Our words are powerful and our story is our legacy. In this song I wanted to display the attack side of the narrative, how any issue I have had with another has stemmed from projection, a choice and the power I allow it to have.
The ghost in the machine haunting my thoughts and puppeting my actions. Deus Ex Machina is a hard hitting wild sonic ride of the mania that lives underneath us all.”
