“Arrows” is Ward’s first new music since Day of Errors released two tracks in November 2017. Composed by Ward, the song also features drummer Brian Tichy (Whitesnake / Foreigner / Ozzy Osbourne), bassist James LoMenzo (Black Label Society), guitarist Keith Lynch and additional performances by vocalist Sarah Dugas and Ezra Ward.
"In the evening of October 1st, 2017, there was a mass shooting in Las Vegas. What we're going to do on October 1st, 2019 is we're gonna release a song that I hope will be supportive," says Ward. "To me, it's kind of like laying a wreath and sending the very best to everybody and wishing everybody well, the injured. It's just a way of saying we're very sorry that all those things happened and that we honor those who are not with us today."
He continued, "It's a very solemn gesture, but at the same time, I've written a song that I hope can bring some solace and some good things to those who are still working through that particular shooting and those particular issues that they encountered because of the shooting." [via Blabbermouth]
