Warbringer1compCalifornia thrashers Warbringer have announced some South American tour dates which will start this weekend. You can click right here to check out a complete list of tour dates, cities and venues along with other US tour dates at the end of May.

Drummer Carlos Cruz commented on the tour: “It’s a tremendous feeling to have heavy metal fans in South America continuously ask us to perform in their home countries, let alone have promoters willing to invest in us to finally make this happen. This 3-day weekend of performances will hopefully open the door to more opportunities for WARBRINGER to perform in many more countries there for the demanding fans. It’s fact that South America upholds a die-hard heavy metal fanbase, and we’ll be sure to NOT disappoint!”

The band has also confirmed their new lineup which is the same lineup that has been touring together since last summer. Until now, the band never made an official announcement about guitarist Jeff Potts and bassist Ben Mottsman (both formerly of Mantic Ritual) joining Warbringer. Cruz explains about this new lineup:

“Nearly 10 years in, over 1000 performances and countless miles traveled worldwide, WARBRINGER has to take whatever measures necessary in order to continue to move forward. More than ever, with the addition of Ben Mottsman on bass and Jeff Potts on guitar, the band has the strongest personal chemistry and musicianship to date. Being long time friends, it was picture perfect to bring them on board with their collective experience as working musicians. It’s funny to recall being the first person to accidentally run into them on the street in Hollywood when they first moved out to L.A. with MANTIC RITUAL in 2008, and now it has come full circle to have them join WARBRINGER.”
