After annihilating the masses on the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Fest all summer long Southern California’s purveyors of pain, WINDS OF PLAGUE, return to further spread their carnage across North America this winter on the “December Decimation” headlining tour. This stellar bill, presented by Merch Warehouse and Fight Magazine, is jammed packed with cutting edge brutality that makes this the must see event of the winter for metalheads across the nation. The trek, which kicks off on Nov. 26th and wraps up on Dec. 23rd at the third annual December Decimation Fest at The Glasshouse in Pomona, CA, also features After The Burial, Carnifex, War of Ages and Upon A Burning Body.

WINDS OF PLAGUE is currently holed up in Los Angeles with renowned producer Matt Hyde (Slayer, Hatebreed) tracking what is easily going to be their career defining opus. This is the band’s most cohesive and focused offering yet and is currently set for an early 2011 release through Century Media Records. Stay tuned over the coming weeks to the band’s MySpace page for an in-depth webisode series giving a very candid, sneak peek into the recording process.
Johnny Plague (vocals) further states: “Coming off of Mayhem (the biggest tour of our career) was inspiring to say the least. Literally, the day after Mayhem Fest ended we were in the studio hard at work on new material. Fast forward a few weeks and we are now into week one of the recording process for our new album (yet to be named). We set out with producer Matt Hyde to raise the bar for WINDS OF PLAGUE both as a band and as musicians. We put a lot of our writing focus into the energy and the structure of the songs and everything else just seemed to fall into place naturally.
“Although it is early in the recording process I can confidently say this will be our best offering yet. Both fans of Decimate The Weak and The Great Stone War will be pleased for we haven’t altered the formula or strayed from our roots, but injected them with rage and fury. The game certainly will change in 2011. See you all on the road soon.”
WINDS OF PLAGUE has changed the landscape of heavy music upon release of their highly acclaimed, vicious new album, The Great Stone War, which made an impressive debut in its first week landing at #73 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The offering quickly propelled the band to the forefront of the American metal scene and serve as a much needed wake up call to the genre.
