California’s old-school style thrash band WARBRINGER announce one of their most grueling and extensive tours yet – a co-headline trek across the U.S. and Canada with Sweden’s ENFORCER – that will see the two groups play 54 shows in 54 days!
Quite the road dogs, WARBRINGER are not ones to balk at undertaking a good touring trek so they’re psyched about sharing stages with ENFORCER in North America once again. The two groups previously co-headlined a successful tour across the continent together in early 2016 and WARBRINGER are ecstatic for another round. The band recently stated:
“We are pleased to announce an extensive North American tour for Fall 2019! We will be hitting the road for 54 consecutive dates with our Swedish speed metal brothers, Enforcer. Looking forward to seeing you guys again and wrecking whatever place we are in!”
During the tour, WARBRINGER expects to release their as-yet-untitled second album for Napalm Records, something else they offered commentary about saying:
“[We] have been forging new material and will be entering the studio this summer to track a new record. We have been hard at work crafting a follow-up to 2017’s ‘Woe To The Vanquished,’ a record we are very proud of. As always, we want to keep our standard of quality as high as possible, both widening the band’s sound but still keeping the whole thing totally relentless and vicious.”
They are not the only ones with a pending album release as their tour pals, ENFORCER, will issue their new recording, ‘Zenith‘, via Nuclear Blast on April 26th.
WARBRINGER has released five acclaimed albums of intense, aggressive thrash and toured with some of the biggest, best-established heavyweights in metal like Testament, Overkill, Napalm Death, Kreator, Soilwork, and countless others. More information on the group’s forthcoming album will be unveiled in the coming weeks while the itinerary of this fall’s tour is listed below.
