Local band releases album on iTunes

Geraldton band The Art of War have released their second album to iTunes and other digital music providers. The local musicians produce original music with a sound nestled right between Rock and Metal.

The subjects the songs tackle range from the emotional to the political.

The Art of War initially began as a collaboration between musicians, Aaron Willcox and James McDonald.

Both found that they had a passion for the exact same music and their ideas for music were on the same page.

The pair spent many years of gigging separately in local Geraldton acts before starting their own band.

“We are under no illusions, we aren’t in this to be rock stars or even to be famous,” Aaron said.

“It’s purely an exercise in doing what we’ve wanted since first playing an instrument.

“To be creative, to make new music, maybe even garner a bit of a following. Anything else on top of that is a bonus.”
