Los Angeles-based thrash quintet Warbringer are in the middle of an insane 54-shows-in-54-days co-headlining tour with Enforcer, and they’ve been playing a new song during the trek, the ripping “Firepower Kills.” Today (September 26th), the metal true believers have dropped the official studio-recorded version of the scorching cut, along with its lyric video — created by Hannah Left Wright of Shadowborn Group — which can be seen below. The song is available now via Spotify, Apple Music and other digital platforms. The digital cover for “Firepower Kills” was designed by Hugo Juarez of Heavy Defender Studios.

“Firepower Kills” is the lead single off Warbringer’s as-yet-untitled sixth album, which is the group’s follow-up to 2017’s Woe to the Vanquished and will mark their full-length release with bass player Chase Bryant (ONI), who joined the group in 2018. Due in February via Napalm Records, the new LP was helmed by returning producer Mike Plotnikoff (In Flames, All That Remains, Fear Factory) and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Slayer, Anthrax, Overkill).

“‘Firepower Kills’ is the album opener and is a rapid-fire thrash burner, with both lyrics and music following the theme of the rapidly evolving and really frightening side of technology,” Warbringer vocalist John Kevill commented on the song. “We’ve been playing this tune nightly on the current tour and it’s been highly well-received. We are right in the middle of this massive North American tour with Enforcer and have left a wake of fire over much of the continent. More updates on Warbringer incoming … Yes, the future looks bright!”
