The gentlemen of METAL ALLEGIANCE are proud to announce FOUR intimate West Coast shows to start off 2016! With the recent release of their critically acclaimed self-titled album under their belts, they are bringing their legendary live experience back to where it began! The West Coast run starts in San Diego on January 7th hits Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and wraps up in San Francisco on January 10th. Don’t miss your chance to watch David Ellefson, Mark Osegueda, Phil Demmel, Mike Portnoy, Troy Sander, Alex Scholnick and Mark Menghi do what they do best – play some heavy metal music!
As they prep for their momentous trek to Soundwave Festival in Australia, they are bringing along american power metal kings CAGE as direct support as well as Arizona-based all-female rock quartet DOLL SKIN to get the night started!
“The entire Allegiance concept started on the West Coast back in 2011 and I’m stoked to bring it back there”, comments Mark Menghi. “The last time we played out there, no one knew we were secretly writing and recording an album, well, a year later, we’re back! Can’t wait to see all of our West Coast friends.”
Mike Portnoy adds, “We are so excited to bring the mighty Metal Allegiance experience to Australia for Soundwave… but we are also stoked to announce that we’ll be doing 5 exclusive warm-up shows in the US before heading down! First we’ll be ushering in 2016 with a special New Year’s Eve show on Long Island for our East Coast friends and then head over to CA & Las Vegas for 4 very intimate club shows on the West Coast before heading Down Under for the mammoth Soundwave Festivals”
“Beyond excited to kick off 2016 playing MA originals and specially chosen covers – the first time with this unique lineup”, states Alex Skolnick. “Since unleashing the album a short while back, we’ve brought our live festivities to the East Coast, Mexico & Japan. West Coast: You’re next!”
“This has been an incredible ride with some amazingly talented friends. Glad to see the Allegiance now thrashing back on the West Coast in the New Year!” comments David Ellefson.
Classic, hard-hitting metal is what CAGE delivers, as heard throughout their new, killer release, ŒAncient Evil. Check out the lyric video for “The Procedure” off the recent album:
