HardTimes.ca has uploaded video footage (see below) of WINDS OF PLAGUE's July 16, 2009 performance in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
WINDS OF PLAGUE will release its new album, "The Great Stone War", on August 11 in the U.S. and August 24 in Europe via Century Media Records. A track from the CD, "Soldiers Of Doomsday", is now available for streaming on the band's MySpace page.
"The Great Stone War" is going to be available in a number of special editions, which are all detailed below.
* The standard CD edition
* Hot Topic edition that features an exclusive bonus DVD featuring the making-of-the-album and tour footage taken from this year's Atticus metal tour.
* iTunes digital download album with the exclusive bonus track "Halloween" originally done by the MISFITS.
Commented vocalist Johnny Plague: "Anyone that knows me is well aware of my unhealthy obsession with the holiday and the events that surround Halloween. When it came for a cover song selection it was immediately decided that we would go with the song 'Halloween' by the MISFITS. Not only is it a timeless classic, but it was a way for us to pay tribute to our friend Glenn Danzig who has been so good to us. Since there are no keyboards in the song we put our keyboardist's (Kristen Randall) voice to use combined with our own WINDS OF PLAGUE twist on the song. We hope you enjoy it and look forward to seeing you all on tour this summer."
A number of specially priced pre-order packages are available now at CM Distro and are exclusive to this shop.
The sextet kicked off a massive worldwide touring campaign for "The Great Stone War" in early June by taking part in the Summer Slaughter touring package, also featuring SUFFOCATION, NECROPHAGIST and DYING FETUS, among a slew of others. They followed this up with a lengthy North American run with HATEBREED and CHIMAIRA.
