“We want to be clear,” explains Ceschi, one of the band’s two vocalists. “This isn’t an endorsement for either candidate in this year’s up-coming election. It’s more about getting people to think for themselves, to not believe everything presented to us by the big media companies such as Fox News & CNN. It’s about getting them to really look at our government’s role in the majority of conflicts which have taken place over the last fifty years, to question their moral judgment, and to decide whether or not they agree with the path our nation has pursued.”

When one takes into consideration our past, it’s relatively easy to understand DEAD BY WEDNESDAY‘s point of view. From the wars we have waged against the spread of communism in Vietnam and Korea, to the role our government has played in the backing of military coups in the Philippines and Chile, to the Iran Contra scandal in the 80’s, to the current conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, one thing is clear, we can’t continue waging wars abroad in the name of peace, or democracy. Doing so tarnishes the very definitions of peace and democracy.

“Fighting for peace is like having sex for virginity,” says Opus. “All this death, and financial burden of this war will fall on the shoulders of our children. It’s not worth the damage we have caused to our nation’s reputation abroad. We have gone from being seen as the savior of all humanity from the evils in World War Two, to being seen as a scary monster that wages war against other nations with no evidence at all for a cause. Doesn’t anyone in government care about what the world thinks of us?”
