Vocalist Phil Bozeman thanked the fans for picking up the new album:
“Thank you to everyone who supports us and has supported the release of Our Endless War. Without you, this record would have not been possible. We’ve worked so hard to get where we are and it’s crazy to say that Our Endless War is our 5th studio album. Thank you for paving this road for us and continuing on the journey that lies ahead!”

Guitarist Alex Wade added:
“We could not be more excited to announce that Our Endless War has been our most successful charting release of our career. We are unbelievable grateful to our fans who pre-ordered and bought the album first week, without their support we would be nothing. This will be a special album in the WHITECHAPEL catalog, and we cannot wait to see where it will take us in the future!”
