Bobby Blitz comments “This healthy competition, it wasn’t something that had roots it was pretty fucking new, that was the beauty of it. You couldn’t even steal something from someone else it was still being created simultaneous while it was being created in Germany, UK and South America. As time has gone by, it has become a formula but back then it was just this sounds good and it was the same recipe that made it sound good. So that was the cool camaraderie  that we all  kinda knew where the other one came from by looking them in the eyes, they didn’t need to say anything. You just knew.”

The band released their second single entitled, “Head Of A Pin”. Watch the lyric video here:  https://youtu.be/zniDdYOLYt0

Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth comments, Head of a Pin” took a long time to come together, it is probably the tune that went through the most changes and the last one I finished. Looking back on it’s development, the time invested was all well worth it. The tonality of the guitar shines on it and the song goes ‘other places’, traditional with a touch of the down-low-dirty riff, and a sing-along chorus…personally, one of my favorites off The Wings of War.”
