At War Announces Release Date For New Album, "Infedel"

US war metal legends AT WAR are pleased to announce that their new studio album, entitled "Infidel," will be unleashed upon the masses on August 18th 2009. Their first new studio album in over 20 years, "Infidel" features nine tracks of pure war metal.

Formed in 1983 by guitarist Shawn Helsel, bassist and vocalist Paul Arnold and drummer Dave Stone AT WAR went on to solidify themselves as one premier metal bands in the American underground. After the reviews and college radio play of their 1985 demo "Eat Lead," AT WAR went on to release their albums "Ordered to Kill" (1986) and "Retaliatory Strike" (1987) for New Renaissance Records. A follow up to "Retaliatory Strike" was recorded in 1994 but ultimately scrapped, which prompted AT WAR to go on an indefinite hiatus only to have the beast awaken from its slumber in 2006 to begin working the material that would become "Infidel."

Throughout 2007 and 2008, a series of triumphant US shows and festival appearances in Europe and Mexico showed AT WAR at the top of their game and unphased by the passage of time or musical trends. Earlier this year AT WAR once again entered Pyramid Sound to record "Infidel" with Alex Perialas known for not only has work on AT WAR’S seminal 1987 album Retaliatory Stike but for genre defining albums by such bands as ANTHRAX, TESTAMENT, OVERKILL, NUCLEAR ASSUALT, ETC. "Infidel"’s stunning cover artwork comes courtesy of legendary illustrator and photographer Claudio Bergamin.

Here are the upcoming AT WAR shows:

July 24th @ Volume 11 in Raleigh, NC with Mobile Death Camp, Kiff, and Armored Uprising
July 25th @ Alley Katz in Richmond Va. with Beyond Fallen and guests.

You can listen to some of AT WAR's music on their MySpace player.
