Johnny Plague Offers Update On New Winds Of Plague Album

Johnny Plague has offered an update on the new Winds Of Plague album. The effort is expected to be released via eOne Music/Good Fight Music later this year.

Plague said the following:

“I wanted to take a minute from the craziness of life, shoot a quick update on the record status, and thank everyone for their patience.

We are putting the finishing touches on the record: working in the epic orchestral arrangements. I couldn’t be happier with how it’s coming together.

It is proving to be everything I could ever want in a WOP record. What stands out to me so far is how seamlessly we are able to blend the many elements that create the signature WOP sound through solid song craftsmanship, fast black metal riffs, crushing breakdowns and over the top orchestra production.

Another huge milestone this record is setting in my opinion is my vocal performance. Producers Noah Sebastian and Joakim Karlsson really pushed and helped me to find new vocal tones and ranges I didn’t even know I was capable of.

After 10 years of music I finally feel I’m going to get the WOP record I’ve always wanted and I know the fans will feel the wait was worth it.

Now, back to work.

Johnny Plague said the following:

“Over two years ago Winds Of Plague played a show at Chain reaction in Anaheim with Bleeding Through on their farewell tour. While I was walking off that stage I was certain that would have been the final show for us as well. We had an amazing 10 year run, played some wild shows, met a lot of great people and now it was time to focus on ourselves as individuals and let the band fade into the background.

However, I was wrong. Now, in 2016 we find ourselves grounded and in a place to return to the stage. After playing a handful of SoCal shows, the fire and passion is raging harder than ever and we are very excited to announce our first run of headlining shows in years. The run of shows takes us to Texas and back accompanied by hard hitters Rings Of Saturn and Enterprise Earth.

We have a multitude of exciting things in the works but today I am proud to announce we have signed a record contract with eOne Music / Good Fight Music to create a new Winds Of Plague record and we are currently hard at work writing new material. Stay tuned as we unravel more details in the coming months!

As always, thank you for the continuing support and hope to see you soon in a city near you, much love!”
