This Time It's War

This Time It’s War began officially in 2004, after longtime friends John Gammon, Justin Lawson, and Alan Simpson decided to take their after-school jams a little more seriously. After adding Brandon Rickey on bass in early 2004, they began playing shows around the Richmond area that spring and summer under the name “Still Life”. Late that year, vocalist Blake Bryant was added to the band, and the name was changed to This Time It’s War to reflect their newly completed lineup.

Still in high school, the group spent all of 2005 and 2006 playing countless shows all over Virginia as well as several weekend tours, notably with fellow Virginia band Love In The Time of Cholera. This set the foundation for their sizable local fanbase in the VA/MD/DC area, sharing the stage with bands like August Burns Red, Scarlet, and a host of others.

Mid-2006 saw the departure of Blake on vocals, and the addition of a friend, Reeves Hankins, as the new singer. After a couple of months of touring and playing shows with Reeves, however, the band decided to part with him and soon after that recruited Bobby Hazelwood on vocals. Entering Planet Red studios that year, TTIW recorded a demo that included old favorites such as “Riddles”, “Into the Abyss” and “The Lord of the Flies”.

2007 was a year of change. The year began with a self-booked tour of the southeast, and in spring 2007 the band unveiled a demo of a new song, “1134”. The sound was a big departure from their previous material, a result of a few years of experience under their belt and a desire to start doing something different in the over-saturated music scene.
