The band has also opened up for artists such as August Burns Red, Chelsea Grin, I Prevail, The Amity Affliction, Every Time I Die and For Today. This band has come a long way since 2015.

Varials and Gideon got the crowd pumped up for Wage War by playing old favorites and showcased new songs that the crowd loved. Each band got the crowd going crazy in the pit and the crowd moshed like there was no tomorrow. By the time Wage War had been done setting up their equipment, the crowd had started chanting the bands name loudly. Almost every single person in the venue was singing along to the songs that Wage War had in store for them.
