By on September 17, 2012

Housecore Records thrashers WARBEAST are set to head out on tour with DOWN next week! The band will join the U.S. tour on September 18th in their hometown of Fort Worth, TX and will travel with DOWN and label mates haarp with a few shows with special guests Pentagram and Saint Vitus and others until October 2ndin Charlotte, NC.
The band is also pleased to announce upcoming European tour dates with DOWN. They will then continue the tour in November with several stops in Germany. DOWN vocalist Philip Anselmo had some words to add about bringing WARBEAST on the road.
“I am extremely pleased we (Down) are bringing the band WARBEAST with us to Europe. They are what I’d call “pure” Thrash Metal, in a classic Dallas/Ft. Worth style,” states Anselmo. “These guys are tailor made for our brothers and sisters across the pond, and I expect them to fucking kick some almighty ass, and gain a shitload of new fans.”
“This has been a goal for each one of us from our earliest bands and from the inception WARBEAST,” states WARBEAST vocalist Bruce Corbitt. “Here in the USA, many of us are envious of the European metal scene. So going on a European Tour with our bro’s in DOWN is even better than a dream-come-true for us. It honestly feels unreal and surreal that this is actually going to happen. Special thanks to our label Houscecore Records for believing in us in the first place!”
