The routing of the previously announced Spring tour with Wisconsin crust brigade WARTORN, including nine dates supporting legendary Italian hardcore/punk outfit Raw Power, has expanded, the full tour now twice as extensive and initially declared. The three-week-long trek now runs through mid-May and hits even more cities throughout the Midwest and will hit the West Coast as well, and includes a throwdown at the two-day Forward Ohio Fest alongside Masakari, Coke Bust, Violent Restitution, Backslider, Nukehammer and more.
Additional WARTORN live actions are in the works as well, including a spot on the upcoming Anarcho Crust Fest where the band will join Skarp, Dresden, Phobia and more in Santa Ana, California in late June. Stay tuned for more shows to be announced in the coming weeks.
WARTORN is touring in support of their new album Iconic Nightmare, released via Southern Lord in late January. The album takes the band’s already powerful songwriting and execution to new levels, surging with nine anthems in the vein of Wolfbrigade, From Ashes Rise, World Burns To Death and Tragedy.
Iconic Nightmare is streaming in its entirety at BLOW THE SCENE.
