In conjunction with the huge national tour, Immigrant Union are pleased to announce their new single from "Anyway" titled, 'War is Peace'.

The result is DeBoer playing the character of John D. Ranger who keeps the business of selling deadly weapons and instruments of covert assassination light and entertaining for the customers who to believe that what they are doing is okay because 'killing is simplified'.
