WARBRINGER – Back in action with new line-up; Touring Asia & select California shows!

California thrash metal band were part of every major tour around the globe for
five years straight. In that time it was miraculous that they found time to
record four albums of unrelenting aggression. And then it all came to a
screeching halt.

really thought that the Empires Collapse record cycle ended prematurely due to
the departure of (guitarist) John Laux and (drummer) Carlos Cruz. I figured it
would be the end of the band, and the end of my life’s work, as I’d really put
everything I had into this band” explains singer John

“I remember on the last
show we played on that US tour (guitarist) Adam Carroll came to me and told me
how we had to keep the torch held high and to realize the full potential of the
band no matter what. We carried on the following European tour with fill-in
members, as we really hate to cancel a gig and let down our fans, but it really
seemed like the end for us. Fortunately, though it took a long time, we have
been able to find musicians in our area to help carry on the torch of the
destructive, intense music this band stands for. So welcome Vicken Hovsepian on
drums, Noah Young on guitar, and Alex Malmquist on bass.
Our mission since we started rehearsing together was to be the
tightest incarnation of the band yet, and to raise the bar and move forward,
never back. So far progress has been great and I can’t wait to get out there and
unleash this new weapon upon the world.”

Asian Assault because there’s nothing better than flying halfway across the
world and debuting your new lineup in front of a huge crowd at the
Hammersonic Festival in Jakarta, Indonesia
alongside established heavyweights like Lamb of God, Mayhem, Vader,
Unearth, and The Faceless among others. This show will
be followed by additional headlining dates in the region, an area
WARBRINGER have attacked feverishly before.

are extremely pumped to return to Asia. It will be our third time over there and
we’re ready to get back into action and bust some skulls!  We’ve played
Indonesia and Taiwan before but this run will include our first visit to China
so we’re excited for that” states Kevill.

WARBRINGER are already putting together plans for US shows
throughout the summer in between writing sessions for a next album. The first of
these short runs will begin with a pair of shows at the San Diego and Anaheim
House of Blues with Meshuggah.  Then headliners at the World
Famous Whisky A-Go-Go in Hollywood, Thee Parkside in San Francisco and The
Spring Meltdown Festival in Reno, NV.

looking forward to playing our hometown again after well
over a year. We’re going to play some songs we have never played live before and
seriously bring down the hammer. See you guys there, c’mon and let’s wreck the
