Warbringer Kicking Off North American Tour

Warbringer will launch a new North American tour in New York City on January 5th, 2016 at The Gramercy Theatre. This co-headliner trek with Sweden's Enforcer will be almost two months and cover the U.S. and Canada, along with opening acts Exmortus and Cauldron.

This is the first domestic tour Warbringer has done since the fall of 2013 when the group opened for Overkill and Kreator in support of last album, "Warbringer IV: Empires Collapse." This is the band's only tour planned for 2016 as Warbringer will continue to write and plan to record a fifth album later in the year.

"The band sounds fucking killer right now and I can't wait to get out there and assault the stage," comments singer John Kevill. "It is worth mentioning that I've seen a number of 'people leaving bands' news pieces recently. Most often they cite the complete impossibly of making a living playing music, and the difficulty of the touring lifestyle. Well, I can say from experience that all of that is true.

"It's tough, there's no denying that. But that isn't what I want to talk about here. What I want to talk about is what has kept me going for the 10+ years and 1000+ concerts I have done with this band I started right after finishing high school. I've seen more of the world than I ever thought was possible, met thousands of people from all walks of life, and from them learned much of the world. Among other things, I learned to remain humble and to always remember what an honor and privilege it is to perform songs I made with my friends, to complete strangers who live thousands of miles away who will come out on a work night to see me and my fellow band dudes banging our heads. Too many people lose sight of this. So that is why I am still here, and why I will see you guys on each of the 47 dates of this tour. Be ready. I am." More...
