Upon Wings recently teamed up with Metal Hammer for the premiere of their new single ‘You Are My Weapon’ . The song will be available for purchase tomorrow (Feb. 8th) on iTunes. But for those that can’t wait, ‘You Are My Weapon’ can also be streamed in the soundcloud player below.
‘You Are My Weapon’ was mastered by Glenn Brown (Kid Rock), produced by Kevin Jardine (Uplift Productions) and mixed by Corey Lowery (Eye Empire). The track features vocals by Anne Autumn Erickson, guitars by Kevin Jardine, and drums by Peter Tzaferis. The cover art for ‘You Are My Weapon’ was designed by Steve Pierce of Balefire Art, who has worked with Motionless in White, A Day to Remember, Pierce the Veil, Blessthefall and more.
Frontwoman Anne Autumn Erickson says the track is ‘About having faith that someone you lost is still with you, giving you strength in this world.’‘You Are My Weapon is really a victorious song. It’s about love and hope and healing, and I think it’s something everyone has experienced. This song really changed over time, and I like the fact it had a mind of its own.”’
The track comes off the project’s latest EP, “Afterlife” which was released March 5th. 2013 via Sword Of The Spirit Records LLC. The CD features guest vocals and production from Brett Hestla [ex-Creed, Dark New Day].
