“Taking You To War” – an atheist anthem by The Cancellations

Ellie of The Cancellations faces away from the camera into a cloudy sunset. She holds the headstock of her guitar as it stands on the ground.

“Taking You To War” is a worship song for those with nothing left to worship. It’s an ever-building folk rock tune where tender vocals are peppered with violin swells and a soaring guitar solo. At its crux, though, it is a song for the atheists, the agnostics, the deconstructionists — those who are just trying to survive spiritually in a society dominated by the manipulation of faith.
