WARBEAST Announce NEW Album & Lineup Changes - Official Statement Available!
Texas Thrash heavyweights WARBEAST are pleased to reveal the upcoming release date for their upcoming full length album, Destroy. The NEW album, produced by Philip H. Anselmo and engineered by Stephen "The Big Fella" Berrigan, will hit stores and digital retailers on April 2, 2013 via Housecore Records. 'Destroy' was recorded at Nodferatu's Lair in May and July 2012 and mixed by Anselmo and Berrigan. The album artwork and concept were designed by “Carcass” John Fossum with graphic and technical adviser John Deleon.
A CD release show for 'Destroy' will take place at The Rail Club in Fort Worth, TX on April 6, 2013. This is currently the first live date WARBEAST has planned for 2013 after the close of their current tour, “The Weed & Speed Tour: West Coast Throwdown in the Year of XIII”, with headliners Down. The tour ends today in Chattanooga, TN.
Additionally, the band has announced that their bassist Dre’ Karst is leaving the band:
"WARBEAST bassist Dre’ Karst will be leaving the band because he is unable to keep up with our busy touring schedule due to his work occupation. We are saddened that Dre’ has to leave the band. But we will be the first to acknowledge that Dre’ did an amazing job while he was in Warbeast. He only had 2 weeks to prepare to record our upcoming full-length album 'Destroy'. He also kicked ass at all of the shows and on the 3 tours with Down. So please everyone… join us in giving Dre’ his props for what he accomplished in his time in Warbeast. THANKS SO MUCH DRE’!!! We will miss ya bro… thanks for being part of our family.
"So obviously that means that Warbeast is now on the hunt for our next bass player. Please only serious musicians contact us about this. Obviously we need someone that can tour constantly and that has a schedule that will work with Warbeast. So for those interested please contact us on here… or you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org"
