The night presented by Murder In The Front Row will feature core members - Mark Menghi and Alex Skolnick with Bobby Blitz (OVERKILL) as well as Metal Allegiance new-comer, Brann Dailor from Grammy wining MASTODON who is making his METAL ALLEGIANCE debut on drums. Direct support for the show is none other than CROBOT with WEAPONS OF ANEW and METALFIER as the opening acts!
Mark Menghi comments, "FINALLY! We’re playing in Chicago as MA. About time… We heard all the messages loud and clear! Prepare for my wig, Alex’s fake mustache that’ll most likely fall off mid-set, Blitz’s ball-busting, Brann’s MA debut and the MA attack ChiTown!”Alex Skolnick states, "Last Halloween, we played Sabbath 1.0 in Brooklyn with vintage instruments (and facial hair); it was a musically satisfying experience and a heck of a good time. This time, we’re bringing the festivities to the Windy City and excited to jam with Brann for the first time, making the night all the more special. If in Chicago and in need of Halloween plans, look no further!
