“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: https://goo.gl/ov896a

ABOUT METAL ALLEGIANCE
Stemming from an initial idea in 2011, Metal Allegiance was born as a way to unite a collection of hard rock and heavy metal’s most notable musicians in a setting born under one ideal- a love of music and performing. In 2015, that ideal still holds true and has become the foundation for everything Metal Allegiance; furthered with the release of the upcoming debut album. While the lineup may change, the passion, the energy and the emotion all remain the same. Metal Allegiance is more than just a record or a concert, it’s an experience and a lifestyle.
