PAUL DI'ANNO's project WARHORSE releases video for first single 'Stop The War'

29-02-2022

WARHORSE, featuring former IRON MAIDEN frontman Paul DiAnno, released the music video for “Stop The War”. The clip, which was preceded by video announcement and an interview of the whole band, was premiered on the Ukrainian YouTube channel Metal Pilgrim hosted by Vladyslav Stadnyk.

Watch the clip for “Stop The War” below.

The WARHORSE single is Di’Anno’s first music release after a seven-year hiatus due to severe health issues. The band was formed by Di’Anno and two guitarists/authors, Hrvoje Madiraca and Ante “Pupi” Pupačić.

“Stop The War” features a universal and very clear message. This fierce, direct and brutally honest song was created as a direct consequence of the tragic events in Ukraine, but its message refers to all wars, the meaninglessness of the suffering and suffering of the innocent.

“I can’t stand up — yet — on my feet, but I can stand up against the wars, deaths, tears, suffering… We all need to stand up against the war and say ‘enough’ to tyrants and lunatics once and for all,” says Paul.

The release date of this video is significant, because it marks Constitution Day in Ukraine, and WARHORSE wants to say that there will always be support for the helpless and those who are suffering, in their loud and fierce way so that the whole world can hear the message well.

Behind the suggestive video, which is a combination of lyrics videos and WARHORSE studio recordings, stands the WARHORSE team and fantastic video producer Andy Pilkington, who has made great lyric videos, among others for JUDAS PRIEST and SMITH & KOTZEN.

WARHORSE plans to record an entire album in a very short period of time, so that they can announce their first performances in the summer of 2023.

WARHORSE released 666 bundles containing the DVD single and event t-shirt from Paul’s comeback concert in Zagreb as part of a pre-sale and in less than two months almost all of them were sold out. Some of the last remaining signed copies are available from www.maidencroatia.com/warhorse.
