WARBRINGER Parts Ways With Drummer, Seeks Replacement

Los Angeles thrashers WARBRINGER have issued the following update:

"Ryan Bates told us he would no longer be playing drums for the band yesterday, though he will continue to play so we could meet our show schedule. But the fact is we have to find a drummer as soon as possible, someone willing to jump into basically non-stop touring and activity with the band. If you think you have what it takes and are interested, please send a video of you playing some WARBRINGER song and also some footage of you just going off and drumming your own stuff. Spread the word, this is pretty urgent, as we gotta go to Europe in a month!"

Metal Injection recently posted a very revealing interview (see below) with WARBRINGER. The band speaks very candidly about its beginnings, getting signed to Century Media, and its dream thrash tour lineup. When asked how they feel about this whole "thrash revival," guitarist John Laux stated "That's what they're calling it. We have a different attitude about it though. We didn't start the band going 'Let's revive the corpse of '80s thrash metal.' We were like 'let's play metal that is really metal.'"

WARBRINGER's debut offering, "War Without End", came out on February 5.

The band's video for "Combat Shock" was filmed with acclaimed director Dan Dobi (BLEEDING THROUGH, CANNIBAL CORPSE).

"War Without End" was produced by Bill Metoyer, who has previously worked with SLAYER and D.R.I., among many other legendary acts.
