After two months of writing and rehearsing together, thrash dudes Warbringer have officially added drummer Carlos Cruz to the fold; he replaces Nic Ritter, who left the band not too long ago.
“After years of putting forth nothing but blood, sweat, and tears into my tireless ambitions for playing music, I have finally found an outlet where no more time is wasted,” says Carlos in a press release from the label. “It was flattering to have been approached by Warbringer the first time they made a personnel change in 2008, but this time around it couldn’t have felt more like perfect timing.
“They’re a collective group of humble, open-minded, down-to-earth guys who share the same fanaticism for music as I do and are the tightest musicians I have ever played with,” he continues. “I’ve never felt so welcomed and inspired to move forward. Even past members of the band have congratulated me and it feels very much like family, not just another band. From some recent serious downfalls in my personal life came this beautiful opportunity and I couldn’t be happier. We’ll be seeing all YOU Warbringers out on the road soon!”
Cruz will make his live debut with the group at the Eyescream Festival in Mexico City, Mexico, on March 5.
