WARBRINGER have just successfully completed a 7-week (!) North America tour supporting metal titans ICED EARTH and SYMPHONY X, but they are ready to be back on the road again soon! For their next North American tour, the band will join DESTRUCTION, VITAL REMAINS, and PATHOLOGY from May 8th to June 3rd, and after that, they’ll appear at various high-profile Summer festival appearances in Europe. Vocalist John Kevill checked in to comment about these upcoming shows:

“Hey all! Checking in at the end of the ICED EARTH and SYMPHONY X tour. We had a great time with those guys, there was a slew of incredible shows with awesome heavy metal fans in abundance, and a bunch of good times with both of those fine bands! Shame to say goodbye to them, but we’re on our way home now to recuperate before beginning out next tour with German thrash metal legends DESTRUCTION, on their 30th anniversary tour!  We never rest long, the war rages on!  We’ll see you guys out on the road again in May, prepare to be annihilated!

We’re also very excited about the way our summer is shaping up. We have about a dozen European festivals confirmed and we look forward to sharing some amazing experiences ravaging the large crowds, big stages and all the fun times to be had with all the other great bands also performing.”

This exclusive footage is available on a USB drive that the band sells on tour, so be sure to pick up yours when you see WARBRINGER live! In addition to featuring this video, the USB also includes all three studio albums and a four-song rehearsal video, making it the ultimate collector’s piece for every WARBRINGER fan.

WARBRINGER released their latest effort, Worlds Torn Asunder, in September 2011 to rave reviews, peaking at #3 on the Metal charts and debuting at #11 on Billboard’s Heatseekers. To purchase Worlds Torn Asunder, head over to iTunes or CM Distro for various album formats.

Read on for critics’ takes on WARBRINGER and Worlds Torn Asunder:

“With their third full-length album, L.A.’s WARBRINGER have come into their own, penning a dynamic record heavy with apocalyptic disillusionment and technical proficiency.” – REVOLVER MAGAZINE US

“This is what EXODUS used to sound like…only better.” – METAL HAMMER UK

“Equal parts speed and menace; each track is chock full of teeth crumbling riffs and gritty death tainted vocals, all paired with furious drumming in a symphony of aggressive sonic destruction that thrashes from start to finish!” – SUBSTREAM MUSIC PRESS MAGAZINE US
