WARTORN has protested political tyranny and societal injustices with a devastating brew of metallic crustpunk since 2004. The band has assaulted live audiences across thirteen countries across North America and Europe in support of releases on renowned crust/punk labels including Profane Existence and Crimes Against Humanity, while its members also take part in other active and notable acts like Dresden, Remission, and Words That Burn. The band’s latest album Iconic Nightmare, released via Southern Lord in late January, takes their powerful songwriting and execution to new levels, surging with nine crushing anthems in barely twenty-five minutes. Diehards of Wolfbrigade, From Ashes Rise, Tragedy and the like should not pass this one by.
Stay tuned for more WARTORN tour updates in the weeks ahead.
