Well, White Arms Of Athena didn’t win the popularity contest to make it into the opening slot of the Thrash and Burn 2011 tour, headlined by Winds of Plague. Shameful, but at least we can look into the silver lining of not having them go on before the terrible lineup that the tour seems to be sporting this year. Volumes however, did win the contest. I haven’t been completely sold on Volumes, but they’re certainly a cut above the rest of the lineup. By far. I could continue to act like I care, but really, I never intended on going to see this anyway.
Here’s the announcement video made by Winds of Plague’s Johnny Plague:
Volumes’ debut album Via is due out September 27th on Mediaskare Records. Dates will be announced soon enough.
