Warbringer Issues Wacken, Sworn Enemy Tour Update

Warbringer has issued the following update from Wacken Open Air and the start of their European tour with Sworn Enemy:

"Thanks for everyone who saw us on the Metal Hammer stage at WACKEN! There is nothing compared to hearing thousands of thrashers screaming "Total War!" louder than your own stage monitors. We loved the energy and can't wait for the next opportunity to slay the masses.

"The beginning of the Sworn Enemy tour has been quite a pleasure. Last night we opened for AGNOSTIC FRONT and tonight were playing in Frankfurt with MADBALL! Theres nothing better than kicking off a tour by sharing the stage and some drinks with such legendary bands. Thanks for everyone that came out to see us in hamburg, we hope more of you guys will come out and support us along the way!"
