Bio: Small Wars is an indie and punk rock collaborative based out of Tennessee. Formed in the fall of 2017, the band seeks to pay homage to the punk rock scene of the 80s and 90s that influenced their own musical interests, but also to the themes of unity, activism, and social justice.

Owing to the physical distance between them, their upcoming EP was written and recorded before the band ever had the opportunity to perform live. While this band is a new endeavor, the members have been involved with each other's projects in some fashion for close to two decades.

Following a move to Murfreesboro, TN, singer/bass player Josh Tipton had a desire to continue writing and playing music after a decade plus tenure in Knoxville-based band The Hotshot Freight Train. Josh teamed up with drummer Will Stout, of nearby Nashville, to help rehearse and record the new material. Stout, originally from the Knoxville area, had recorded albums for several of Tipton's previous bands. Greg Barker, also previously of The Hotshot Freight Train, from Knoxville signed on to play guitar. The release of the Small Wars EP will be the start of further promotion for the band, which seeks to turn this collaborative endeavor into a long-term project. For the Small Wars, there's far too much left to say to stop now.

Track Name: Bombs
Well I hear everybody wondering
how this could happen, happen again.
And I don't know what is more surprising?
What we're seeing no one understands.
And now we're hearing everybody saying
Things have never been this bad
Man, I'm just not sure what world they think we've been living in...we've been living in.

We forget the poor and build more bombs
We fill in the wells and build more walls
We build our worth by buying things that we don't need
We neglect the poor and build more bombs
We fence in our gardens and our hearts
We'll exploit the Earth until we make ourselves extinct
Can't you see what's going on?

And I keep hearing everybody wondering how this could happen, happen again.
And I don't know how it's so surprising.
We're all struggling.
Man, I'm struggling.

Repeat chorus.
