Warbringer Recording New Album

California thrash act Warbringer has issued the following statement about their upcoming album and show dates:

While earning a reputation as road warriors, Warbringer have spent the last two months home working on new material that will comprise their second album. The five-piece are now prepared to enter the studio in January to record the follow-up to "War Without End", voted by Revolver as one of the best albums of 2008.

In mid-January Warbringer will play four shows in California previewing new material, including a show in Anaheim during NAMM, before entering Sharkbite Studios (Machine Head, High On Fire) in Oakland January 19th with Exodus guitarist Gary Holt producing. The album will be mixed by Zack Ohren (All Shall Perish, Light This City, Braindrill) at Castle Ultimate.

Guitarist John Laux comments, "Since our last tour we've lead a very successful and creative campaign in the jam room collaborating on our next record. While staying true to our identity we have plenty of new tricks up our sleeves, including things we learned on the road, as well as showcasing [newest member] Nic Ritter's explosive drumming. We're thrilled to be tracking in the Bay Area and we couldn't be more confident with Gary Holt as our producer to help us bring our music to life in a recorded format. Besides being a legend in the thrash scene, Exodus have always managed to produce records with a killer punch regardless of dismal musical climates. Also, we think Zack's experience in mixing and mastering will be excellent as he's worked on a number of very LOUD and FAST records."

Meanwhile Gary Holt had to this offer, "I am stoked to be producing the latest Warbringer record. I had a chance to hang out at rehearsal and listen to the new songs and their latest stuff is crushing! People will not be disappointed, that's a fact! The young guns are definitely stepping it up a notch or ten and it promises to be intense!"

Upon completion metal's most lethal live band will immediately hit the road beginning February 10th alongside Soilwork, Darkane and Swallow the Sun through the end of March leading straight into shows with Kreator, Exodus and Belphegor through May. Yes, the band will be playing over 100 North American shows to set up the new release while they continue to support their debut on what they've dubbed The Tour Without End. Warbringer's new untitled affair is expected to be released in late May and the band plan to tour well into 2010.

01-14 The Whisky - Hollywood, CA
01-16 The Jumping Turtle – San Marcos, CA
01-17 Chain Reaction – Anaheim, CA
01-18 Gilman Street – Berkeley, CA

f***in awesome. My buddy will be stoked to hear this. his favorite bands in the world are Slayer(who can blame him?) and Warbringer, because they sound like old Slayer updated for today.

Not to mention, I'm stoked for this sh** too. this band is the sh**, and I'm seeing them twice anyway, with Exodus, Kreator and Belphegor, and maybe with Soilwork a month or two beforehand. I'm buying two tickets and the cd, and so are 15 of my frineds lol It's gonna be an awesome year for this band.

Now Playing: Metallica- Ride the Lightning

warbringer is awesome. i saw them earlier this year and their show was epically funny - in a not funny sorta way.

the venue they played didnt advertise them at all and was pretty sh**ty. my buddy and i had a hard time finding the place in the dark because the outdoor lights and signs were all off. there were more people in the bar watching the world series than watching warbringer (12 ppl i think were watching WB).

but the highlight of the night was when their vocalist blew chunks all over the stage and didnt miss a note! they just put a towel over it in between songs and kept going \m/. but man, it f***ing stunk.

i look forward to seeing them again w exodus this spring!

now playing: symphony x - church of the machine

Man, I wish the Vaudeville Muse would advertise more, sometimes they have killer shows there.

But the problem is I don't usually find out about them until the day after when one of my friends goes "Hey, you'll never guess who I just saw live last night!....."
