This Just In: “2015 Metal Alliance Tour Is Cancelled, Deicide Continues With Headlining Run”

Wanted to get this news out to you fine Metal Legions that might already have tickets for this tour but the event known as the 2015 run of “Metal Alliance Tour” has been cancelled. This tour featured a headlining Deicide with support from Entombed AD, Hate Eternal, Svart Crowne and Black Crown Initiate. That is the bad news. The good news is that Deicide will continue on with the remaining dates as a headliner with Hate Eternal, Black Crown Initiate, Lorna Shore and Svart Crowne. Entombed AD is no longer appearing on this run of remaining dates. I’ve posted the updated tour poster and the official press email that I just received below so check it out.

Ghost Announces “Black To The Future: North American Tour” for Fall 2015

It’s been a little over a year since those Nameless Ghouls and their insidious leader Papa Emeritus II had last paid a visit to our neck of the woods and for those among the converted who have hoped for their return, the very recent news about their upcoming tour was bound to cause levels of catatonic jubilation. Check out the poster below.

Tour - Ghost - Fall 2015

A Nameless Ghoul states…..

“”BLACK TO THE FUTURE – NORTH AMERICA 2015 – Children of North America. We are absolutely stoked to tell you all that we are going to spend September and October this fall touring your beautiful lands. This time together with British Purson as support. Who’s coming?”

Alright so perhaps this is not the biggest bit of information from the band but sometimes brief and to the point speaks volumes so let’s leave it at that and check out the tour dates listed below. It will be awesome to find the band play at Terminal 5 on this go round since it will be the first time that they are doing that.

Warbringer Announces Winter 2016 Tour With Enforcer

Earlier today I mentioned that there were a lot of tours being announced and it was not long after I mused that aloud that those thrashing Californians in Warbringer have returned to action and were announcing a Winter Tour for the beginning of 2016 with Enforcer, Cauldron and Exmortus. I’ve secured the official press release for you all along with the poster and am sharing it with you below. Then we can talk about this a little more before closing up. Here we go.

Tour - Warbringer and Enforcer - 2016

The Press Release:
Southern California thrash-metal five piece, WARBRINGER have built a reputation for themselves over the past five years having recorded four albums and touring the planet with relentless drive and passion. Now after a year-long hiatus, a tour of Asia, a small run of California shows and a few lineup changes, they are writing this summer and plan to record in the fall. They have also just announced a full North American tour in early 2016 with Enforcer and a South American Tour in July.

Phil Anselmo Unveils Superjoint Reunion “It Takes Guts” Tour For Summer 2015

There have been a lot of tour announcements these last few weeks and that is a good thing at the beginning of the summer because it means that we fans of the Metal will have a lot of different things to do with our hard-earned cash. Let’s face it, there are few better ways to spend your free time than with a bunch of your friends going crazy at a Metal show. Speaking of crazy Metal shows, let’s get on down to brass tacks as Phil Anselmo announces the reunion of his band Superjoint (which seems to have dropped the “Ritual” part of their moniker) as they get set to perform the first shows together in more than a decade. The official Press Release follows the poster and then I will close up with some personal insight.

Presenting The Monster Rock Allegiance Fest for 2015

There are Festival Shows and then there are festival shows and while I’ve been traditionally using this particular category for the tours that are heading across country, there are times like these where that needs to spotlight a festival of note. That said, let’s get the information out about the upcoming Monster Rock Allegience Fest that will happen in the Fall of 2015. I’ve shared the press copy and some provided photos but will be back to discuss with you later on. Let’s go.
