Lead Singer, Davo Sounds when asked about the inspiration and creative process behind the new album said that:
“I had a blast preparing and creating new tracks for this project. I was able to team up with a lot of Chicago talent to get something unique and vibrant. Vince Lawrence, one of the originators of House music created a dance mix for Love is War. Gabriel Alex revived People Make Love, establishing an open verse for Joel Q (Korporate Chicago) and BeeDotKay (Bianca Shaw) to rap on. Lord Haiti ( Mansa Miss 2k20) and Ramon King (10 Day, Chance the Rapper) got down on a Love is War remix heavily influenced by Juke and African music. All mixed and mastered with Gabriel Alex, Jesse Parks, Parios Jmal, Geronimo Approved, Danny and John Christy at Studio 2020, Ksenia “KSound” Plastinina at The Major Studio and Cruz at The Jungle AE. This has become very Chicago and I’m excited for you to hear it.”
Attack the Sound also won Best Cinematography at the Best of the Midwest Awards for their most recent music video “Love Is War”. The band ended 2021 on a high note with the release of this new album. The opening track “Bad News” features John Renaissance and sets the tone for the remainder of the album with its confident lyrics and R&B Chi Pop sound.
