With roots tying back to the heart of proto punk in Detroit Michigan, American born Jim Boone is building a strong following in Brazil with his garage punk band, War Industries, Inc. Brazilians Willian Paiva (Hammerhead Blues, Leeds) and Derick Troia form the new lineup for the power trio out of Santo Andre, São Paulo, Brazil.
Motivated by criticism of the U.S. military industrial complex and a coming 3rd world war, War Industries, Inc. stands out in a sea of mediocre hardcore-punk and pop-punk, with sudden, slow tempo changes, and catchy riffs that sound like a cross between ministry and minor threat while Black Sabbath rings in your head. Fans have described the band as a group of diverse and dynamic songs with a powerful dark yet fun vibe.
The band’s debut single sex control was recorded at Family Mob Studios as part of the Converse Rubber Tracks project in São Paulo, Brazil. Immediately following was the self-released album Legends from Turtle Island which is receiving critical acclaim and underlines the creative and artistic talent behind the music. The album, also recorded in São Paulo, Brazil with Douglas Oliveira on drums and Guilherme Delmolin on bass, is a showpiece for Producer Edu Recife, who recorded and mixed all 10 tracks.
The new line up for War Industries, Inc. was announced in mid-2017, along with a new album to be released in 2018. The band recently finished part 1 of the Lost Indian tour and is expected to announce new dates for part 2 by December.
Jim is a revolutionary at heart who lists John Heartfeild and Fela Kuti as his deepest inspirations. A strong proponent and student of the new music industry, he dreams of achieving success without ever signing a record deal. With the talented new formation announcement combined with tour dates and a new studio album, War Industries, Inc. Is sure to start turning heads in 2018.
