Lethal Cincinnati, Ohio-based metal unit War Curse has announced some changes to their membership. You may recall the fiercely old-school, thrash-fueled band’s incredible breakthrough release from 2015, ‘Final Days‘.
That release’s guitarists, Justin Roth and Joshua Murphy, along with drummer James Goetz, are still keeping the curse alive! In 2016, they added well-known bassist Jason Viebrooks (Heathen/Grip, INC.) to the band’s line up.
Now they are pleased to inform metalheads everywhere that their new vocalist is Blaine Gordon and the quintet is hard at work on a new album. They’ve enlisted the services of Ben Schigel of Spider Studios (Chimaira, Drowning Pool, Ringworm). Ben will be the engineer and producer of the tentatively titled sophomore release, ‘Serpent‘. Check out the video teaser below!
In the meantime, War Curse is actively playing shows and was recently confirmed as one of this year’s Full Terror Assault 2017 acts. The band is also currently at work on plans for their first ventures to Mexico and Europe.
