Says frontman Alex Wein: “We are extremely stoked to announce our East Coast Crusher Tour happening this August/September. Coming in hot off the heels of our performance at Hell’s Heroes, and then our second European Tour, we are stoking our heavy metal fire with more tour dates and a stop at RPM festival. We’re planning to hit the studio afterward, so this tour we’ll be road testing new songs that will be on our next album. Burn some rubber and get on down to a show or get left in the dust!

WAR CLOUD issued their latest single “No Good to Me” in 2021 and self-released a 2-track EP entitled “The Chain Gang EP” on streaming platforms. Their acclaimed live album ‘Earhammer Sessions’ is still available through Ripple Music.
With a 2014 ignition in Oakland, California, WAR CLOUD has left a smoking path across much of the USA and Europe. Formed and led by Alex Wein (vocals, guitars) after planting his amps in the Bay Area, he unified a crew with Nick Burks on guitar, Sam Harman on Bass and Joaquin Ridgell on drums. In 2020, the band moved its headquarters to Austin, Texas.
Taking a classic 70s heavy rock and 80s power metal approach and then aggressively dousing it in modern metal sophistication, embracing their recognizable dual guitar harmonies, proto-metal licks, and hard-charging rhythms, adding heavy surges of British and Southern metal to inspire the fire. WAR CLOUD has released two albums, both on Ripple Music: ‘War Cloud’ (2017) and ‘State Of Shock’ (2019). Electrifying audiences for eight years, they take no prisoners with their own brand of high-energy heavy metal.
