UK Theatrical Avant-Garde Rock band, WARD XVI, have released a music video for the new single ‘Cry Of The Siren‘, the song is taken from their new album ‘The Art Of Manipulation‘, which was released July 1st, 2017 via Rock’N’Growl Records. The video was filmed and produced by award-winning Horror filmmakers, Mycho.
WARD XVI‘s debut album ‘The Art of Manipulation‘ is a 12-Track concept album telling the intraspective story of a female psychopath locked away in a high security asylum. ‘The Art of Manipulation‘ is a genre defying mix of hard-hitting metal riffs, soaring guitar solos, off-beat ska rhythms, melancholic piano, accordion, catchy female vocals, a hint of electro.

In the summer of 2013 in the city of Preston in the Northwest of England, a group of misfits got together for a new musical project ‘WARD XVI‘, with the aim of creating something completely unique. Each musician coming from a different musical background drawing in influences from the likes of Alice Cooper, Lordi, The Skintz, Stolen Babies, Scar Symmetry, Diabolo Swing Orchestra, Iron Maiden, Alter Bridge, Jason Becker and Avatarium.
Since the release of WARD XVI‘s debut EP in January 2015, WARD XVI have gone from strength to strength, headlining shows in and around the North West with an ever-growing fan base. The highlights of Ward XVI‘s career so far include playing the main stage at O2 Academy Leeds in the final of the Soundwaves Music Competition, supporting William Control and The Men that will not be Blamed for Nothing. After a great response from the release of Ward XVI‘s self-titled EP the band have recently returned to the studio to record a 12 track concept album titled “The Art of Manipulation“ and signed with Germany’s Rock’N’Growl Records.
To top it off Ward XVI also progressed to the Bloodstock Open Air Festival on the New Blood Stage after winning Metal 2 the Masses Burnley. Their Bloodstock performance went down an absolute storm, packing the New Blood Tent out at 10:30am which resulted in several interviews throughout the day with Total Rock, Bloodstock TV, Planet Mosh and Uber Rock to name a few. Due to their outstanding performance the inmates went on to bag themselves an additional sponsor prize of a brand new PA system courtesy of Studiomaster.
Ward XVI have already been added to the roster of Breaking Bands and Pentre Fest 2018.
