Formed in 1969, the original street band fuses soulful sounds with a mission to spread a message of brotherhood and harmony.

 

The year was 1969… and these ‘kids’ had the nerve to carry the name WAR at a time when peace was the slogan in an anti-Vietnam United States.

Their instruments and voices became their weapons of choice and the songs their ammunition.

They spoke out against racism, hunger, gangs, crimes and turf wars, embracing all people with hope and the spirit of brotherhood in a message that still stands today.

WAR was brought together by veteran record producer Jerry Goldstein (‘My Boyfriend’s Back’, ‘Hang On Sloopy’, ‘I Want Candy’) and rock legend Eric Burdon (ex-lead singer of the top British band The Animals).

WAR from the beginning was a concept and musical laboratory. As Burdon’s back band, it was the vehicle for Goldstein (as producer/songwriter) and Burdon (as lead singer) to experiment with the blending of many musical styles and influences.

WAR wound up being honoured with 17 gold, platinum or multi-platinum awards, which include the triple platinum The World Is a Ghetto, and double platinum Why Can’t We Be Friends? and Greatest Hits.
