Below is our complete War of Ages news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Following the band's originally scheduled support slot on the recently cancelled Machine Head tour, Michigan's Battlecross will be heading back out on the road next month for more than two dozen headlining dates through North America.
Dubbed the "Winter Warriors" tour, the trek will kick off on November 26th in Grand Rapids, Michigan and conclude on December 30th in Worcester, Massachusetts. Support will come from Wretched and War Of Ages.
In honor of the U.S. Armed Forces, this Veterans Day Battlecross will make a limited number of tickets available to VET TIX so that local members of the military may attend a show in their city at no cost. The band will also be donating a portion of the funds generated from sales of a limited edition tour shirt to a local veteran's charity, and choose a veteran in each market for a VIP experience.
On Veteran's Day (November 11th) fans can nominate a friend or family member who has served their country and share their story and photo, with a member of the military being chosen to win a guitar and more at the end of the tour.
On the same day, the band will also bring back merchandise from their first Metal Blade album, "Pursuit Of Honor," in their official merch store, with a portion of the proceeds being set aside to benefit the Wounded Warriors Project, a veterans service organization that offers a variety of programs, services and events to wounded veterans of the military following the events of September 11th, 2001.
War of Ages has released a video for "Chaos Theory," the second single from the band's 2014 album "Supreme Chaos," which can be seen below.
Shot and directed by Matt Spencer, the video takes place in the group's hometown at a local venue packed out with fans and friends.

The gaming public's love/obsession for music games has unquestionably died down in the last couple of years, and the output on the Rock Band Network has been steadily decreasing over the previous months.
For those out there who still can't wait for Friday night to take shots and badly scream into a microphone, you've got a few new tracks coming your way (although Xbox players will be disappointed to learn they actually get less new music than PS3 gamers for once). Xbox 360 fans now have access to this new track:
War of Ages - “Silent Night” (80 MSP)
PS3 players instead will get these songs on 1/29/2013 (North America) and 1/30/2013 (Europe):
The Dillinger Escape Plan - "Gold Teeth on a Bum" ($1.99)
Taproot - "No Surrender" ($1.99)

Facedown Records has checked in with the following statement about the upcoming Facedown Festival:
"We are very excited to announce that Facedown Fest 2013 will take place on April 12 & 13 at the Stronghold in Chino, CA. The entire active Facedown roster will be playing the event and tickets are just $10 each night! We also have a limited amount of deluxe ticket packages available which include a limited edition screen printed poster, Facedown Fest 2013 root beer, Facedown Fest T-Shirt, Facedown backpack, sunglasses and more!"
Facedown founder Jason Dunn had the following to say about this year’s fest: “Facedown Fest began in 2000 at an amazing venue called the Showcase Theatre. Over the years the fest grew and unfortunately the Showcase theatre had to shut its doors. I loved the energy of those early years from both the bands and the crowd and I am excited to have that again as Facedown Fest returns to a more intimate venue. The people at the Stronghold have been so supportive of our bands and label over the years so it just made sense to do this there. Plus, with the lower overhead we can offer $10 tickets to the people who are responsible for keeping Facedown alive for all of these years. This is one way for us to say thanks and give back to our incredible Family of supporters.”

Christian metalcore act War of Ages has announced that they have reached a deal with Facedown Records. The band commented on the signing by saying:
"We are honored and excited to continue our career with Facedown records! In 2005 Facedown looked to the north western tip of PA to find 5 passionate guys who loved to play music with a purpose. We promised to work hard and do so with honor and integrity, holding onto every value God has given us.
"With 6 years of album writing, touring, ups and downs, bumps and busies, Facedown stood behind us pushing War Of Ages every step of the way. As we grow as men every album gets better and better due to the strong foundation Facedown has built. We are blessed to not only call them our label, but FAMILY!"
