WINDS OF PLAGUE: New Audio Interview

Tricia Weight (a.k.a. A Geek Girl) of "Interviews From The Edge" recently conducted an interview with vocalist Johnathan "Johnny Plague" Cooke of Southern California's purveyors of pain WINDS OF PLAGUE. You can now listen to the chat below.

WINDS OF PLAGUE has entered a Los Angeles studio with renowned producer Matt Hyde (SLAYER, HATEBREED) to begin recording its new album for an early 2011 release via Century Media Records.

Commented Cooke: "We set out with producer Matt Hyde to raise the bar for WINDS OF PLAGUE both as a band and as musicians. We put a lot of our writing focus into the energy and the structure of the songs and everything else just seemed to fall into place naturally.

"Although it is early in the recording process, I can confidently say this will be our best offering yet. Both fans of 'Decimate The Weak' and 'The Great Stone War' will be pleased for we haven’t altered the formula or strayed from our roots, but injected them with rage and fury. The game certainly will change in 2011."

WINDS OF PLAGUE will embark on the "December Decimation" North American headlining tour this fall. The trek, which kicks off on November 26 and wraps on December 23 at the third annual December Decimation Fest at The Glasshouse in Pomona, California, also features AFTER THE BURIAL, CARNIFEX, WAR OF AGES and UPON A BURNING BODY.

"The Great Stone War", the latest album from WINDS OF PLAGUE, sold 6,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 73 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was released on August 11, 2009 in the U.S. via Century Media Records.
