Digital pre-order starts on December 4 and includes an instant download of the single "Nothing Can Stop Me", which the band has already performed live. The track is dedicated to a friend of IGNITE who is fighting brain tumor. On the same day, a strictly limited seven-inch single will be made available.

The lyrical themes covered on the new IGNITE album by frontman Zoli Teglas include bullying, the trappings and pitfalls of what some call the progress of today's world, and the mass media and its filtered information that he feels is molded to suit eco-political goals for the occupation of natural resources to the oppression of peoples. Zoli also hits upon topics such as racism and prejudice in America and the insanity of war told to him from the stories of hardship and perseverance of his immigrant family while making their journey west through wartorn Europe finally ending up in Los Angeles, California.

"A War Against You" will be released shortly before IGNITE heads out on the 2016 edition of the EMP Persistence Tour, on which IGNITE will be performing as headliner. This amazing package also features labelmates TERROR, who will be out supporting their own brand new album, "The 25th Hour", as well as NYHC legends H20 and special guests IRON REAGAN, TWITCHING TONGUES, WISDOM IN CHAINS and RISK IT.
