Toto Premiere New Song, “Holy War”

Toto have premiered “Holy War,” a new song from their upcoming album, Toto XIV. You can hear it below.

The album, which will be released March 20 via Frontiers Music, is available now for preorder.

“Holy War” is available now—along with another song, “Orphan”—as an instant-gratification track on iTunes when you order the album.

Toto XIV is the band’s first album of new material since 2006’s Falling In Between. It is a realized vision three-plus decades in the making, packed with the masterful arrangements, topical lyrical commentary and melodies that Steve Lukather, David Paich, Steve Porcaro, Joseph Williams and their bandmates bring to life.

"When you put us in a room, and everybody brings in their pieces, the next thing you know it all fits together," Lukather says. "Everybody's performances are top notch. We are really bringing our best out, forcing ourselves to make personal best choices, what's best for the music. I'm really excited to hear what people think."

The band will hit the ground running with a European headline arena tour with appearances at key festivals. The itinerary begins in Glasgow May 21 and takes Toto through the UK, France, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Italy and Belgium.
