Album Notes
War Lights is the music of Tony Poer and a rotating cast of musicians.  Hailing from Flagstaff, AZ, they make lo-fi/acoustic rock in the style of the Pixies, Pavement, Death Cab for Cutie, and Pedro the Lion. War Lights started as a way to re-work songs from some of Poer's previous projects (Emperors of Japan, Pistols at Dawn, Einhorn) so they could be played in a solo acoustic setting.  As is typically the case, during the rehearsal and recording of the older material, new songs began to evolve.  It started off as mostly acoustic/lo-fi, and then grew as keys, percussion, and other instruments were added.  

The first EP, History Repeats, is a collection of the older material.  There were no plans to release any of it at first, but the response at shows proved that a lot of fans wanted new versions of the older songs.  Ghosts and Someone is Going to Die Tonight are from the Emperors of Japan album "Activator", and the other tracks on the album all came from the Pistols at Dawn sessions.

The long-term vision for War Lights is a little more complex, and is being written/recorded in a bit of an unorthodox way.  Tony is crafting and recording some rough outlines of songs - some with lyrics, some without, and sharing them online with friends that have collaborated in the past.  They're adding their touches and finishing each song together, despite the fact that none of it is face to face. Expect a mix of indie-rock, folk, and electronica...
