FØES/HEATED: War On Everything Split 7” EP To See Release Through Glacier Recordings; Tracks Streaming + Cooperative Tour Dates Kick Off This Week


Bay Area hardcore/metal label Glacier Recordings presents a pummeling split EP between Oregon’s FØES and California’s HEATED, titled War On Everything. Two of the tracks from the split have been issued as the bands prepare to assault California and Nevada on a four-city tour together this week.
Created during the gut-punch of the past two years of the pandemic, FØES teamed up with their road companions HEATED to assemble the succinct but impactful War On Everything split 7”. With two songs from each band, War On Everything is complete and total war against the environments each act was and still are subjected to as well as an all-out assault against themselves in the physical and mental stress ridden times we find ourselves, here in America in 2022.
Side A of War On Everything brings forth FØES’ tracks “Ghost Town” and “Dog Catcher,” which were recorded and produced by Garrett Judkins and Sonny Daniels at their own Doomroom Studios and mixed by Derek Leisey. Side B delivers the HEATED songs “Immune Leap” and “Doom Feed,” with the drums self-recorded by Zack Baker at his home studio, guitars and bass recorded by Roman Gonzalez at his home studio, and the vocals recorded by Mike Sahm at Dream Awake Audio where the songs were mixed with additional production by Allen Freeberg. The track “Immune Leap” features a guest vocal appearance by Micah Berry of FØES. All tracks were mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Integrity, Nails, Xibalba) and the record is completed with album art and design by Taylor Bates.
FØES’ “Dog Catcher” and HEATED’s “Immune Leap” are now streaming at Bandcamp where digital preorders for War On Everything are available HERE.
War On Everything will see release through all digital services on May 27th, followed by the vinyl later this Summer. Watch for updates on the vinyl to be posted over the weeks ahead.

Sunriver, Oregon-based FØES developed from a long-running side project of drummer Garrett Judkins and guitarist Sonny Daniels – both formerly of In the Advent Of Horror, Morgellon, and Murder On Hermosa – now rounded out with vocalist Micah Berry (Illis Amora, Old Nod) and bassist/vocalist Brandon Self (Existential Depression, Gravewitch, Unto the Plague, Abiosis). The band released their The Doom Room Sessions EP in 2016, followed the following year by the NOD record. Several notable singles including “Naysayer” and “Free Of Them,” along with solid live performances and tours, would give the band quite a bit of pickup over the next few years. In 2020, the band released the American Violence EP through Glacier Recordings which showcased the band and their most crushing yet.

HEATED is a hardcore collective based out of Stockton, California.

HEATED also boasts a lengthy list of live collaborators and artistic contributors including Zack Baker, Jake Hollingsworth, Dylan Todt, Hunter Thomas, and several others. Their debut EP was recorded in 2017 (before the full-time additions of Freeberg and Barrows) and was released in October of 2021, followed almost immediately by the release of their first two singles with the current lineup, "Enormous Shadows" and "Empty Maze." The band is currently in the process of recording their debut full-length album.

WES speaking of his EP, stated: "This album is like a doorway to different times of my life. Each track was written from tragic moments in my life . It's hard to keep that emotion bottled up inside so instead of crawling in a hole and dying, I took the pain and wrote the pieces of me. Remeber you are not alone"

Here Lies Wes is an alternative indie rock project. With his grungy riffs ,to his emotionally driven lyrics, puts his sound on the map , with some of the best artist in the world. From (Staind) Aaron Lewis, 10years with a tangled twist of the late 90's alternative/rock. From artist like , Bush to Candlerbox, his musical talents definitely earn the right to be on this list of known artist. In early 2022 he just signed his firt deal and partnered with Wormholedeath Records in releasing his first album titled "Pieces of Me", under the name Here Lies Wes. Including tracks like "Broken Hearts" and "Resistance", he hopes to flood the music industry and he's thankful for his achievements as an artist.
