Warbringer: Announce more high-profile festival appearances for the Summer 2012 in Europe; Launch rehearsal video-clip online; Wrap up North American tour with Iced Earth & Symphony X!
US-Thrash Metallers WARBRINGER are on the way home from a massive North America touring run of 7 (!) weeks supporting Metal titans Iced Earth and Symphony X and are already announcing a next North American tour together with Destruction and Vital Remains from May 8th to June 3rd as well as a string of newly added high-profile Summer festival appearances in Europe. Vocalist John Kevill checked in to comment as follows:
"Hey all! Checking in at the end of the Iced Earth and Symphony X tour. We had a great time with those guys, there was a slew of incredible shows with awesome heavy metal fans in abundance, and a bunch of good times with both of those fine bands! Shame to say goodbye to them, but we're on our way home now to recuperate before beginning out next tour with German thrash metal legends Destruction, on their 30th anniversary tour! We never rest long, the war rages on! We'll see you guys out on the road again in May, prepare to be annihilated!
We're also very excited about the way our summer is shaping up. We have about a dozen European festivals confirmed and we look forward to sharing some amazing experiences ravaging the large crowds, big stages and all the fun times to be had with all the other great bands also performing."
Following their busy schedule all across North America into June, WARBRINGER will return to European ground in the Summer to play a long run of high profile festival events as well as some selected club shows as headliners. The band has most recently added festivals like Devilstone (Lithuania), Headbanger's Open Air (Germany), Free & Easy Festival (Germany), Metalcamp Tolmin (Slovenia) and Alcatraz Metal Festival (Belgium) to their ever-growing schedule of dates, which can be seen here:

In addition to the newly announced dates, WARBRINGER have now also launched special, professionally filmed rehearsal-room footage from the sessions to their latest album release, "Worlds Torn Asunder". The clip still showcases former, longtime guitarist Adam Carroll, who left the group earlier this year and has ever since been replaced by Andrew Bennett. Watch the video of the band performing the merciless track "Future Ages Gone" on the Century Media YouTube-Channel here. www.youtube.com/watch?v=97WL3FPxyq0
Next to the standard album as jewel case CD and Digital Download, WARBRINGER's latest album release, "Worlds Torn Asunder", is also available as limited edition LP version with 180g. vinyl and as a strictly limited edition European Digipak CD edition including a woven WARBRINGER patch as well as two special audio bonus tracks (Cover versions of Bathory - "Sacrifice" and Unleashed - "Execute Them All").
All formats of the album, t-shirts and also a special and strictly 7" EP release for the album track "Living Weapon" with a cover of Motörhead's "(We Are) The Road Crew" as B-side is available for purchase (with signatures by the band or without) from the European CM Distro shop here: www.cmdistro.de/Search?q=warbringer
"Worlds Torn Asunder" was produced and mixed by the renowned Steve Evetts (Suicide Silence, The Dillinger Escape Plan), and features amazing artwork by none less than Dan Seagrave, who designed WARBRINGER's previous album cover as well as artwork for such legendary acts as Entombed, Malevolent Creation, Suffocation and Morbid Angel. WARBRINGER last successfully toured Europe in November - December 2011 as main support act to Swedish Metallers Arch Enemy and their latest promotional video-clip (for the song "Shattered Like Glass") can still be enjoyed online here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5wqtSFuGLc
