Stand Atlantic is prepared for battle with their new single, “WARZ0NE.” The track marks their first release of the year, and they’re showing no signs of slowing down. “WARZ0NE” aims at people who hide behind their screens while attempting to target and hit those in the spotlight with hatred.

“I have been advised many times I shouldn’t respond to hate comments online,” says frontwoman Bonnie Fraser. “So, I just wrote a song about it instead.” Aggressive vocals from Fraser call out negative comments but finally said aloud versus typing words out on a keyboard. The ending chorus drips in anger against trolls: “Say it to my face/Bitch/I’m like a cyclone/Enterin’ the warzone.”

With sliding, nu-metal-inspired guitar riffs tied together with a hardcore breakdown, plus digital tones coded in, the track plops listeners into an online public forum doubling as a battlefield. Fraser explains that anonymous people on the internet overstep and go from critical to vial. “I think anyone who has experienced negative feedback that isn’t constructive or conducive for a respectful discussion can understand the unrelenting strength it takes to not absolutely rinse someone who has put their hate online and directed it at you.”

The lyric video replicates a camera that spies on whoever comes up to it. The band’s singing looks, and anticipation of someone breaking out from behind the lens add weight to the message. “The song represents a fantasy for those who wonder what those people would do in real life if they said it to your face. Which they wouldn’t because they’re cowards,” Fraser shares.

“WARZ0NE” is a bold, fierce anthem against bullies. And has the exact attitude needed to let the cynical comments roll off your shoulders.
