Now available for pre-order: One Time For Unity 12" EP from World Be Free
One Time for Unity is the new five-song EP from WORLD BE FREE, the Los Angeles-based band formed in 2014 comprised of vocalist Scott Vogel (TERROR, BURIED ALIVE), guitarist Joe Garlipp (ENVY), guitarist Andrew Kline (STRIFE, BERTHOLD CITY), drummer Sammy Siegler (JUDGE, CIV, RIVAL SCHOOLS), and bassist Alex Barreto (CHAIN OF STRENGTH, EXCEL).
Since releasing their debut full-length album, The Anti-Circle, on Revelation Records in 2016, WORLD BE FREE played a handful of shows, but were sidelined by everyone’s schedules and frontman Vogel's neck surgery. During this forced hiatus, WORLD BE FREE continued to write new material, and when the moment presented itself, they focused on the five tracks which eventually became One Time for Unity.
Chuck Ragan of HOT WATER MUSIC provides guest vocals on the EP’s title track, one of the more melodic moments on the record. Vogel says of the cameo, “HOT WATER MUSIC is my favorite band ever, so to have him on a song is a dream come true for sure. Having Walter (Shreifels) on the first record, and now Chuck on this second release, is really special for me. I would have never imagined this would come together in my lifetime.”
Vogel also mentions that the EP’s opening track, “Acceptance,” represents a watershed moment for him and his place in WORLD BE FREE. “Up to the point this song was written, I would say the band was in limbo. My surgery really messed up the momentum or growth of the band on the first release, and when I was back on my feet, we never really got that ball rolling again. Some songs were written that didn’t truly excite me, but when I heard this one, I was fully fired back up to do more with WORLD BE FREE.”
The One Time For Unity 12" EP is available in black and white sunburst (limited to 700 copies) or red and white sunburst (a RevHQ exclusive, limited to 300 copies). In addition to the EP, you can also pre-order One Time For Unity T-shirts, long sleeves, hoodies, and bundle packs.
