The Press Release:
After a whirlwind year that saw them releasing their explosive MAYDAY EP and a new cover of Metallica’s classic “Enter Sandman” with singer-songwriter Alessia Cara, Monterrey Mexico hard rock sister trio The Warning have announced their debut U.S. headline tour for 2022. With its Los Angeles shows at the Troubadour already sold out, the MAYDAY Tour kicks off in San Diego on January 18, with the ticket pre-sale launching on December 7, locally on December 9, and to the general public December 10 at https://www.thewarningband.com/tour. The Warning, which features sisters Daniela “Dany” [guitar, lead vocals, piano], Paulina “Pau” [drums, vocals, piano], and Alejandra “Ale” Villarreal [bass, piano, backing vocals], is a hard-hitting power trio that has built a global fan following with their infectious sound and unflinching lyrics.

In October, the band released their MAYDAY EP via LAVA/Republic Records that included standout singles “CHOKE,” “EVOLVE”, “DISCIPLE”, and “MARTIRIO.” Produced by the legendary David Bendeth (Paramore, Bring Me The Horizon, Breaking Benjamin), the project is an electrifying musical rollercoaster that offers an unapologetic look at issues faced by the younger generation today — from ever-present technology, communication problems caused by generation gaps, love, anxiety, and the overwhelming pressure to suppress emotions.

Last month the world got a full-on Official Trailer for the upcoming Sony Pictures release “Morbius”. This follows the recently released “Venom: Let Their Be Carnage” which was quite lackluster and if you didn’t see that trailer just click HERE to be up to speed. Now, with only a few short weeks until the release of “Spider-Man: No Way Home” we have an Exclusive Clip called “The Transformation”. There is also some new poster art and you can check that all out down below. Let’s get on that shall we? Enjoy.

The Premise: One of Marvel’s most compelling and conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Oscar® winner Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero, Michael Morbius.

What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease. (c/o Sony Pictures)
