LP version on white vinyl. Right now, the world needs a warrior. Town by town and tour by tour, She Makes War has been widening her battle stance and soothing tortured souls with her no-holds-barred, peaceful protest music. Armed with songs to persuade and words that bite then linger with the sweetest aftertaste, she has a message - wake up world and Brace for Impact. "People still live in fear of persecution and violence every day for the 'crime' of being themselves," attests the nom de plume of melodic visualizer, storyteller and creator Laura Kidd. "With everything that's going on in the world, adopting a brace position to protect ourselves from external forces is more important than ever." From broken hearts to broken bones, Laura was given plenty of time for rumination when she broke her right foot moments before supporting The Brian Jonestown Massacre. Tumbling off a darkened stage during soundcheck, adrenaline kicked in and, ever the fighter, the show went on. With barely enough time to visit A&E, a face full of glitter and steely resolve, she performed a slew of summer festival sets and a BBC 6Music Marc Riley session sporting a fetching knee crutch. "Having my mobility stolen from me was exhausting and depressing. I'd come up with the album title while driving on tour, daydreaming about what it must be like to be in a high-speed car crash - I'd wondered whether there would be time to apologize to my passenger if we got in an accident - it was a bit dark," she recalls. "After struggling through the summer with that phrase in my mind, then finding it written in the venue toilets at the end of a tour in Brighton, it just had to be the album title."
