WARBRINGER Drummer Injured; Band to Continue Touring

Los Angeles thrashers WARBRINGER have started touring in support of their upcoming sophomore release, "Waking Into Nightmares", which will hit shelves on May 19. Unfortunately, the band has run into a problem as drummer Nic Ritter faced a major injury recently, breaking his elbow after slipping on ice after a recent show. WARBRINGER has vowed to continue on, however, with guitarist Adam Carroll on drums until they meet up with EPICUREAN, whose drummer John Gensmer has agreed to play both sets.

WARBRINGER comments: "Unfortunately, this is not an April's Fools joke. Nic fell down the other night loading out of the club and hurt his elbow. We hoped with some ice and rest it would be okay. This morning we found out it was broken. Regardless, the shows must go on and we rehearsed as a four-piece with Adam playing drums. This will be the format for the next handful of shows until we hook up with EPICUREAN, as John Gensmer has agreed to play both sets. We toured together on OVERKILL and he is a beast. Nic will be out of commission for at least three weeks, but will be staying on the road with the band."

WARBRINGER has unveiled the cover artwork — created by esteemed artist Dan Seagrave (MORBID ANGEL, ENTOMBED) — for "Waking Into Nightmares", which will be releasd via Century Media Records. The CD was mixed by Zack Ohren (SUFFOCATION, ALL SHALL PERISH). A video for the song was filmed on February 22 at The Rave in Milwaukee, Wisconsin by Dave Brodsky (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, SUICIDE SILENCE) during WARBRINGER's tour with DARKANE and SOILWORK.

WARBRINGER's new album was recorded at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, California with axeman/producer Gary Holt (EXODUS).
