American thrash metal heavyweights Warbeast have revealed the upcoming release date for their full-length album, Destroy. The new album was produced by Philip H. Anselmo and engineered by Stephen "The Big Fella" Berrigan, and it will hit stores and digital retailers on April 2nd, 2013 via Housecore Records.
Destroy was recorded at Nodferatu's Lair in May and July 2012 and mixed by Anselmo and Berrigan. A CD release show will take place at The Rail Club in Fort Worth, TX on April 6th, 2013.
Warbeast vocalist Bruce Corbitt also comments on a lineup change: "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 two weeks to prepare to record our upcoming full-length album Destroy. He also kicked ass at all of the shows and on the three 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."
Corbitt continues: "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 send an email to [email protected]"
