Steve Wernick Band - War For Peace

Steve Wernick Band - War For Peace
This is my first full album, following last year’s release of my six-track debut mini-album “Talent to Burn”, co-credited with Rolfe Knudsen.

”Love is a Gamble” is the title track of this 12-track album.

Rolfe has been heavily involved in the making of this recording of course. Apart from drawing the stunning cover artwork there are several songs we co-wrote. He played guitar and sang some beautiful backing vocals.

My immeasurable thanks to producer Greg Pigott. We actually started recording at Greg’s studio in Concord and after he relocated, ended up in the picturesque and tranquil Gwandalan. I recorded my first ever songs with Greg, so was totally comfortable from the word go.

I will be indebted to the musicians who played and sang on the album forever. Massive thanks to Cara on violin and backing vocals, Yianni on banjo, mandolin and guitar and Gen on backing vocals.
The songs on the album were trawled from a seven-year period including a few previously recorded and reimagined songs, like “Love is A Gamble”. “Keep on wearing Black” is another song I’ve recorded before but this time we got it the way I always imagined.

About this track...

Wernick and Knudsen conjure up a blistering anthemic “Call-to-Arms” with this one. Reflecting on a dystopia fuelled nightmare of chaos, fake news and alternative facts. Wernick spits out the relentlessly bleak lyrics matched with haunting intensity by a swaggering beat and guitar/violin crescendo echoing the glory days of The Clash.
