WINDS OF PLAGUE Announces ‘Thrash And Burn’ Tour Dates

Southern California metallers WINDS OF PLAGUE will hit the road in November as part of the “Thrash And Burn” tour with CHELSEA GRIN, AS BLOOD RUNS BLACK, FOR THE FALLEN DREAMS, UPON A BURNING BODY, IN THE MIDST OF LIONS, LIKE MOTHS TO FLAMES and VOLUMES.

Commented WINDS OF PLAGUE vocalist Johnathan “Johnny Plague” Cooke: “We are very excited that our first U.S. headlining tour in support of our new record, ‘Against The World’, will carry the Thrash And Burn brand. In my opinion, this year’s lineup is one of the heaviest lineups I’ve seen in a while. Each band will deliver their unique brand of crushing metal, and it will prove to be one hell of an evening for fans of heavy music. Our set will consist of an even balance of songs between our three records. We are pulling out all the stops for this tour — if you have seen us before, you’ve never seen us like how we will be on this tour.”

WINDS OF PLAGUE‘s third full-length album, “Against The World”, which sold 8,700 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 60 on The Billboard 200 chart. Released on April 19 via Century Media Records, the CD features guest appearances from members of HATEBREED, TERROR, FOR TODAY, STRAY FROM THE PATH and former world heavyweight wrestling champion and sports entertainment legend Ultimate Warrior (who performs an epic spoken-word track entitled “The Warrior Code”). It is described in a press release as “the heaviest-hitting record of the band’s already heralded career.”

WINDS OF PLAGUE created exclusive editions of “Against The World” for both Hot Topic and FYE, each with its own artwork. Fans who purchased from FYE received a free bonus live CD, recorded at the Glass House in Pomona, California by John Montes at Small City Studios. The Hot Topic special edition features a DVD full of more than an hour of content including a live performance from the Glass House, tour footage from around the world, the making-of footage from the “Against The World” sessions and more produced by Jeremy Schott for MentalSuplex Productions.
