SoCal thrash metal force WARBRINGER recently announced the upcoming release of their brand new full-length album, Weapons of Tomorrow, out April 24 via Napalm Records. Today, the band has dropped a throttling, cinematic new music video for their brand new single, “The Black Hand Reaches Out” – both of which reference the events surrounding the assassination of Franz Ferdinand – an event that is commonly believed to have spurred the start of WWI.
Check out the brand new video below, directed by Lenny Vitulli of Red Riot Films, which also features acting cameos from the band members themselves!
WARBRINGER vocalist John Kevill says:
"‘The Black Hand Reaches Out’ is the second track we are releasing from Weapons of Tomorrow, along with an accompanying music video. The song and video both reference the Serbian paramilitary nationalist group, known as "The Black Hand." This was the organization that plotted the Franz Ferdinand assassination in Sarajevo – probably the most consequential terrorist attack of all time. Not a conspiracy theory, but an actual conspiracy. The song's lyrics represent the orders coming from the organization to the (expendable) agent. The song itself is a mid-tempo stomper with a sneaky, clandestine feel, and is one of the many different forms of thrash assault that we are bringing to you all with Weapons of Tomorrow.”
