We can't wait for all the stage dives and high fives that await us.

Winds Of Plague Announce Summer Tour; New Album Complete
May 19, 2007
Winds Of Plague are set to embark on “The American Uprising Tour,” a lengthy summer trek that kicks off on June 27th with Catherine, Beneath The Sky, Born of Osiris and At The Throne of Judgment. The group recently completed work on their much-anticipated Century Media debut offering with Daniel Castleman (As I Lay Dying, A Love Ends Suicide).

Johnny Plague (vocals) checks in with the following report: “After 22 long, tiring and stressful days in the studio, there is finally light at the end of the tunnel. Daniel Castleman has been awesome and has really gone above and beyond making sure this record is perfect. I also couldn't be happier with my vocal tracks.

Oscar Cairoli (A Love Ends Suicide) has also been helping out tracking on the record, which is a real lifesaver. Oscar’s brother Jon from A Love Ends Suicide stopped by to lay down some guest vocal tracks. Other guest appearances include John Mishima of Time For Change and Francine Boucher of Echoes Of Eternity.

“Upon completion of the album we will tour relentlessly throughout the year. The madness all kicks off with ‘The American Uprising Tour,’ which we will co-headline with Catherine. Beneath The Sky, Born Of Osiris and At The Throne Of Judgment will be in the support slots. We also have a European tour that will be announced in the near future. We look forward to seeing you all soon.”

Winds Of Plague released their debut full-length album, 'A Cold Day In Hell', on Recorse Records in 2005 and spent most of the following summers and school breaks on the road touring with the likes of Bleeding Through, Too Pure To Die, A Love Ends Suicide, The Taste of Blood and many others. This Los Angeles based quintet have their share of Southern CA hardcore roots running in their backyard, though the atmospheric sounds of Scandinavian black metal and classic American metal reign supreme in the bands music.

Biography
YEAR FORMED: 2004
HOME TOWN: Cincinatti
MEMBERS:
Joey Nelson - Vocals
Jeff Nelson - Guitar
Nick Scarberry - Bass
Brandon Sowder - Drums
Chris Profitt - Guitar
Matt Jones - Keytar

Cincinnati has never been considered to be one of the more high-profile music scenes a la New York, Los Angeles, Seattle or Austin, yet the new Victory Records band Beneath The Sky has emerged from that scene there with the resonance of the fabled Big Red Machine. The extreme death metal core outfit is shocking the world with What Demons Do To Saints, featuring a hellacious collection of songs that elicit fevered comparisons to bands such as Carcass, Hypocrisy, Shadows Fall and Killswitch Engage.

Rising from the ashes of various local bands, including scene favorite Blind Judgment, singer Joey Nelson, axemen Jeff Nelson and Chris Profitt, keyboardist Matt Jones, bassist Nick Scarberry and drummer Brandon Sowder came together in mid-2004. “We knew each other when we were in different bands,” Nelson recalls. “Over time, we first became friends, and eventually we decided to crate our own band. It was similar to the music we were playing early on, only that we wanted to be a little more melodic with this band.”

It didn’t take long for the sextet to realize their immense potential. “From the start, we wanted to create a different sound,” Jeff says. “We knew we had it right after the first show. Everything just clicked.”

Did it ever: In January of 2004, they cut a four-song demo in Cincinnati; 5,000 copies of it were snapped up almost instantly. After more touring of the Midwest, they recorded five new songs in Cleveland for another EP; copies of that went just as fast. The commotion attracted the attention of Victory Records, which brought them into the fold in no time…and back into the studio to record their debut album.

“We used four old songs, and the rest of them are new,” Jeff notes. “One of the older songs we recorded completely shocked us when we heard the final version. We couldn’t believe it was the second song we ever wrote. It’s called ‘Falling in Love With Cold Hands.’ In all, we just wanted to make the best possible album we could make, and I think we accomplished that goal.”

Once the album hits retail on January 23, Beneath The Sky goes into overdrive on the road. “It’s all bigger and better from here,” Jeff concludes. “We’ll get out there, play hard and get on bigger tours. One thing will lead to another. For Beneath The Sky, even the sky isn’t the limit.
