With this release, the SoCal five-piece have not only proven a true mastery of their craft, but have spurred the forward shift of an entire genre – transporting thrash metal into a brand-new era.

Building upon their internationally-acclaimed blistering attack, with Weapons of Tomorrow, WARBRINGER showcases a refreshed technical approach and a heightened focus on unique lyrical and vocal style. The record takes the promise of the band’s previous release, Woe to the Vanquished, and carries it onward, presenting WARBRINGER at their absolute best to date – over 10 years into their careers.

In celebration of the announcement of Weapons of Tomorrow, WARBRINGER has released a brand-new music video featuring a completely remastered version of their most recent single, “Firepower Kills” – exclusive to the new album!

WARBRINGER vocalist John Kevill says:
“’Weapons of Tomorrow’ contains two tracks you've previously heard, ‘Firepower Kills’ and ‘Power Unsurpassed’, which now appear on the record in new and improved form. ‘Firepower Kills’ is about advancing weapons technology. Modern science is an enormously powerful tool, and the human species must be very cautious about its use. This song looks at the last 100 years of scientific advances in weaponry and asks, ‘where does this lead?’ Musically, it's a total thrashing burner, and the main riff ‘evolves’ throughout the song like the weaponry in the lyrics.”

WARBRINGER Premieres Explosive New Single 'Firepower Kills'

L.A. thrashers' sixth album due in 2020; marathon tour with Enforcer continues through 10/28

 

Three weeks into their ongoing 54-shows-in-54-days co-headlining tour with Enforcer, the Los Angeles-based thrash quintet WARBRINGER has released a new single, “Firepower Kills.” The song can be streamed on Spotify, Apple Music and other digital platforms - www.smarturl.it/firepowerkills. A lyric video – created by Hannah Left Wright of Shadowborn Group – can be viewed HERE.

 

“Firepower Kills” – the digital cover for which was designed by Hugo Juarez of Heavy Defender Studios – serves as the first official taste of WARBRINGER's forthcoming sixth album, due to be released via Napalm Records in February. The group has been playing the track live during their current tour with Enforcer, which kicked off in San Diego on Sept. 5 and continues tonight at Toronto's Velvet Underground. MetalSucks recently posted fan-filmed footage of the group's performances of the song in both San Francisco and Sacramento, calling it “an aggressive, thrashy number that seems to have done a fine job of keeping the kids a-moshin’... it’s reassuring to know the can still crank out thrash riffs with the best of ’em.”

 

WARBRINGER's new album will serve as the follow-up to 2017's “Woe To The Vanquished,” which Metal Hammer said “delivers all the pounding riffage and machine-gun tempos a thrash freak could want.” The as-yet-untitled new record – which was helmed by returning producer Mike Plotnikoff (In Flames, Fear Factory, All That Remains) and mastered once again by Howie Weinberg (Anthrax, Slayer, Overkill) – marks the band's first full-length release with bassist Chase Bryant (Oni), who joined the group last year. 

 

“’Firepower Kills’ is the album opener and is a rapid-fire thrash burner, with both lyrics and music following the theme of the rapidly evolving and really frightening side of technology. We’ve been playing this tune nightly on the current tour and it’s been highly well-received,” explains Warbringer vocalist John Kevill. “We are right in the middle of this massive North American tour with Enforcer and have left a wake of fire over much of the continent. More updates on Warbringer incoming… yes, the future looks bright!”

 

Over the past dozen years, WARBRINGER has released five acclaimed albums of intense, aggressive thrash and toured with a who's who of metal, including Megadeth, Testament, Obituary, Napalm Death, Exodus, Suffocation, Overkill, Arch Enemy, Kreator, Soilwork, Municipal Waste, Skeletonwitch, Destruction, Nevermore, Symphony X, Iced Earth and Death Angel, among others. More information on the group's forthcoming album will be unveiled in the coming weeks.

WARBRINGER Announces Extensive Co-Headline Tour With Enforcer
L.A. thrash group set to perform 54 shows in 54 days; new album due out this fall

Los Angeles-based thrashers WARBRINGER have been road dogs since their inception, but this fall, the band will hit the road for another grueling and extensive tour 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. The complete itinerary appears below.

This is not the first time WARBRINGER and Enforcer have shared the stage together, as the two groups previously co-headlined a successful North American tour in early 2016. Since then, both acts have hoped for another opportunity to perform together – and this fall, they'll have 54!

“We are pleased to announce an extensive North American tour for Fall 2019,” says WARBRINGER vocalist John Kevill. “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!”

WARBRINGER expects to release a new album – their second for Napalm Records – during the tour. Says Kevill, “WARBRINGER has 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.”

In recent weeks, WARBRINGER played two memorable sets on the 70,000 Tons Of Metal cruise and headlined a sold-out hometown show at the Whisky A Go Go. The performances continued the band's momentum from 2018, which saw them perform at notable festivals in both their home continent (Heavy Montreal, Full Terror Fest, Frost & Fire) and abroad (Summer Breeze, Sabaton Open Air, Motorcultor). In addition, the group played a number of European shows alongside Sepultura in support of their recently-released 7-inch single “Power Unsurpassed.”

Over the past dozen years, WARBRINGER has released five acclaimed albums of intense, aggressive thrash and toured with a who's who of metal, including Testament, Obituary, Napalm Death, Suffocation, Overkill, Kreator, Soilwork, Municipal Waste, Skeletonwitch, Nevermore, Symphony X, Iced Earth and Death Angel, among others. More information on the group's forthcoming album will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
