Car Seat Headrest have officially released their new song “War Is Coming (If You Want It)”, which is now available on all digital platforms. The band recently shared an “alternate mix” of the song on Bandcamp for one day only, as part of Bandcamp’s fundraiser to support the Transgender Law Center. You can check out the song via Spotify below.

Says Will Toledo, “This is a song about not murdering people”


Last night I dreamed that you’d murdered some kids

Gone up towards the border where the freaks live

I couldn’t tolerate it, yet somehow I did

If it had been on TV I would’ve changed the channel

And afterwards I lay awake for quite some time

And thought about opinions I’d kept

At 5 in the morning I couldn’t tolerate it

How many had died while I slept?

Now is the time to cast Darwin aside

Stop spinning lines that justify the lure of suicide

And reach out your hands

And save someone’s life

Because war is coming

If you want it

She’s keeping quiet in a season of crime

Walking away as if nothing had changed

From that awful display

People are are strange

If they keep on laughing

Nothing will change

Now is the time to cast the screenplay aside

And try to create some space between the lines

To lift up your voice

And change someone’s mind

Because war is coming

If you want it | War is Coming
