Formed in early 2002 in Marshalltown, Iowa, Modern Life Is War went on to release four full length albums: My Love. My Way. (2003), Witness (2005), Midnight in America (2007), and Fever Hunting (2013). Like a lot of bands, they have been through many highs and lows. Broken Vans, breakups, reunions, injuries, tours, lineup changes, mental illness, peaks, valleys, misery and general confusion. The members of the band value creativity, self-expression and independent thought and do their best to represent that with their music and lyrics.
Along the way they have developed a wildly supportive cult of supporters who allow the band to keep traveling and recording. June 2018 saw the band announce “Tribulation Worksongs” an ongoing singles series which to date has seen the release of Volumes 1 and 2, with the next 2 volumes due in 2019.
