WINDS OF PLAGUE Parts Ways With Drummer, Seeks Replacement

Los Angeles-based band WINDS OF PLAGUE has parted ways with drummer Jeff Tenny. The group — which is currently taking part in the "Thrash and Burn" tour alongside DARKEST HOUR, PARKWAY DRIVE, MISERY SIGNALS, STICK TO YOUR GUNS, ARSIS, ABIGAIL WILLIAMS, ARSONISTS GET ALL THE GIRLS and AFTER THE BURIAL — will remain on the trek, with drummers from the other bands lending them a helping hand.

Commented WINDS OF PLAGUE vocalist Johnny: "WINDS OF PLAGUE as individuals have been hit very hard recently by a very selfish act committed by our longtime drummer. We are disgusted and very disappointed in his actions. However, we as a band are not going to let this slow us down. A few drummers from the tour have stepped up and are helping us finish the remainder of the 'Thrash and Burn' run. We are currently on the search for a new drummer."

"The Impaler", the new video from WINDS OF PLAGUE, can be viewed below. The clip, which was reportedly rejected by MTV due to its supposed "graphic language and questionable content," was helmed by up-and-coming director Jake Avignone.

WINDS OF PLAGUE was hand-picked by the legendary Glenn Danzig for his 20th anniversary tour this fall. The massive North American trek, dubbed the "Blackest of The Black", kicks off in October and also features DIMMU BORGIR, MOONSPELL and SKELETONWITCH.
