LA-based band Tomorrows Bad Seeds will debut their new single honoring U.S. troops at a D.C. concert this weekend.
Tomorrows Bad Seeds, an independent reggae-rock band formed in 2004, features Moises Juarez (lead vocals), Matthew McEwan (guitar/vocals), Sean Chapman (guitar/vocals), Pat Salmon (drums) and Andre Davis (bass).
The group's newest single, "War Letter," written by Juarez, showcases emotions experienced after being separated from loved ones. The song soon became a tribute to service men and women who must leave their families after deployment.
The group collaborated with the Department of Defense on the project, which allowed the band to use real footage of troops returning home and heading into battle for its music video.

The single was released on Thursday, with the music video set to premiere on MTV on March 11.
"The music video for 'War Letter' brings the dedication of our troops to life," said producer Samantha Neider. "The TBS team worked closely together to highlight the DoD footage in a way that allowed us to honor our troops wholeheartedly."
