Warbringer Prepares For Tours with Finntroll and Overkill, Shoots New Video For "At The Crack of Doom"

After returning home from Germany's Wacken Open Air festival and touring throughout Europe alongside labelmates Sworn Enemy and All Shall Perish, L.A. thrash warriors WARBRINGER now set their sights back on North America as they prepare to embark on back to back tours. The first trek, which kicked off on Aug. 22nd, sees the group as direct support to the Finnish sensation Finntroll and the second run, which kicks off on Oct. 1st, as direct support to legendary thrash titans Overkill.

John Laux (guitars) states: "Thanks to everyone who saw us on the Metal Hammer stage at Wacken Open Air. 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. We can't wait to get back on the road throughout North America with Finntroll and then Overkill, which means we are hitting a lot of places so be sure to check out the MySpace page because we are most likely coming your way. Thrash til death."

WARBRINGER just completed a new video for the vicious track, "At The Crack of Doom," with up-and-coming director Joe Hendrick. The clip is a savage, performance based video that unleashes a fury of aggression and all out thrash madness.

Hendrick states: "The aesthetic style and vibe of this video is drastically different from their previous video. We have numerous smooth, wide, crane and dolly shots that show off the location, resembling the look of the metal videos from the 80's."

Laux (guitars) further comments: "A brand new WARBRINGER video should be showing up online sometime in the middle of next month. Originally we wanted to shoot at a castle, but we ended up performing 'At the Crack of Doom' at a very old, evil and torn up building in the Mojave desert. This video is a performance piece like 'Combat Shock,' but we also had extras running around in hooded robes carrying torches as part of a post apocalyptic cult or something. Needless to say, after working on the project we are very excited for its release."
