WINDS OF PLAGUE To Drop A New Record With Heavily Revised Lineup
Winds of Plague never really broke up, but the inactivity over the last couple of years has been fairly real. The last we had heard from the group was 2013's offering, Resistance, and to the best of my knowledge the album was not received very well. So maybe it's time for a solid followup?
"We had an amazing ten-year run, played some wild shows, met a lot of great people and now it was time to focus on ourselves as individuals and let the band fade into the background. However, I was wrong. Now, in 2016 we find ourselves grounded and in a place to return to the stage.
"After playing a handful of SoCal shows, the fire and passion is raging harder than ever and we are very excited to announce our first run of headlining shows in years. The run of shows takes us to Texas and back accompanied by hard hitters RINGS OF SATURN and ENTERPRISE EARTH.
"We have a multitude of exciting things in the works, but today I am proud to announce we have signed a record contract with eOne Music / Good Fight Music to create a new WINDS OF PLAGUE record and we are currently hard at work writing new material. Stay tuned as we unravel more details in the coming months!
"As always, thank you for the continuing support and hope to see you soon in a city near you, much love!"
Aside from founding vocalist Johnny Plague, the band now consists of returning drummer Arturo Cruz (originally from 2008 to 2012), keyboardist Alana Potocnik who has been on board since 2009, and then the trio of bassist Justin Bock and guitarists Volkar Kael and Michael Montoya, who all joined in 2015.
So are you stoked? Or should these winds just blow over?
