White Lung Singer Says Allegaeon Are "Dickless"

Vancouver, B.C based White Lung's frontwoman Mish Barber-Way has written an open letter to Allegaeon (via Clrvynt) concerning the band's recent decision to attempt to crowdfund their band via Patreon. In a foaming diatribe the indie-rock band's singer states:

"Dear Pussies,

"I just stepped off the airplane and the first text I got was a link to an article about your Patreon page. Apparently, you need some money to keep your metal career alive. Well congratulations, Allegaeon! You are officially the laziest, most pathetic, sub-human beta males in America.

"Rock isn’t what it used to be. Some guy named Neill already schooled you about that in Decibel Magazine. I’m not going to repeat what he said regarding over-saturation and personal responsibility. I’m just going to add the things he was too polite to say.

"Your begging video was a complete joke. As I listened to your TM [tour manager] spout off all the money you owed (over $8,700), I was shaking my head. If you were a small business, you would fold. I listened to your tour expenses, and you guys are such morons. You are paying people you don’t even need. First off, management. If your manager was doing his job, you wouldn’t be in this position. Fire him. Two, a driver? Can none of you drive?" More...

Colorado's Allegaeon issued a music video for the new song "All Hail Science." The track is taken from the new album "Proponent for Sentience," which is due out September 23rd via Metal Blade Records.

The video was shot at Black Sky Brewery in Denver, CO during the recording of "Proponent for Sentience" in the winter of 2016.

Allegaeon's Greg Burgess (guitar) comments: "We had the great pleasure of being allowed to shoot 'All Hail Science' at Black Sky Brewery here in Denver. We have a great selection of metal bars here and Black Sky is by far my favorite. It has such a friendly atmosphere and the staff and owners are so supportive of our local scene. Basically Black Sky let us throw a free show/party for anyone who wanted to show up. It's pretty apparent from the video, but we had a blast that day. Huge thanks to Black Sky for their hospitality, SSS Productions for running sound and lights, Vince Edwards from Metal Blade for filming us being dumb, and the fans who showed up to party!"

The album's track listing is as follows:

1. Proponent for Sentience I - The Conception

Allegaeon Recruits New Vocalist

Allegaeon just completed over a month's worth of touring with label mates Act of Defiance, which featured Riley McShane on the microphone for his first full tour with the band. He was filling in following the departure of Ezra Haynes back in October.

Upon returning home, Allegaeon is prepared to announce McShane as the band's new permanent vocalist. Riley has become a permanent member just in time for the band to begin work on their new album.

Guitarist Greg Burgess comments: "We are extremely excited to officially announce Riley McShane as the permanent vocalist of Allegaeon. For those who have come to see us on the last two tours, I'm sure this will come as no surprise; his past work with Son Of Aurelius, Inanimate Existence, and Continuum speaks loudly as to who the man is as a musician and what kind of weapons he brings to the band. As a long time friend, and being a huge fan of his vocal abilities, this is very exciting for us. New blood is always a great catalyst for creativity, and to bring in a musician of his caliber has been nothing short of awesome. Not only has he been a perfect fit for the group personality-wise, but has also provided us with an array of new vocal techniques to use at our disposal. So, Riley, welcome! All Hail Science!"

Updates on new material from Allegaeon will be available later this winter. "Elements of the Infinite," the band's most recent effort, cracked the Billboard Charts and debuted at #25 on the Hard Music Chart. More...

Allegaeon Parts Ways With Vocalist

Allegaeon just issued the following announcement online about splitting with vocalist Ezra Haynes before heading out on tour:

"It is with a heavy heart that we announce that we have parted ways with our vocalist and brother Ezra Haynes. Lineup changes suck for the fans, and even more so for the band. He is still a very dear friend to us and we wish him the best with his future projects.

"That being said we're very excited to embark on this tour with Act Of Defiance. Our good friend Riley McShane (Son of Aurelius/Inanimate Existence/Continuum) will be filling in on tour. As always come rage with us!!! HAIL SCIENCE!"

Ezra had this to say: "Hi there luvs, There is no easy way to say this: I am no longer a member of Allegaeon. At the moment there are some things that require my full undivided attention. With that being said, I wish Stancey pants, Greggoroth, B-Park the marksman (You guys better start calling him that) and Coco Malone the best of luck and great success, they deserve it more than anyone I know! The most important thing to me is that the fans understand truly how much I love and adore them. I’ve met literally thousands of amazing human beings over the last 7 years. You guys and gals are incredible and thank you for your ongoing support!

"Will I continue music in the future? Most definitely, I am looking for projects, so feel free to contact me. Please be sure to catch Allegaeon on their upcoming tour with Act of Defiance, I can tell you from 1st hand experience that this will be one of the best live shows of 2015. On that note: #AllHailScience and most importantly... #AllHailMegatron!" More...

SXSW 2015 Day Two: South By South Death

Metalsucks.net's South By South Death showcase featured guitar shredders. Tech death bands Archspire and Allegaeon were in full force, but before they hammered out their first blast beats, a different kind of shredder took the stage. Myrone is a one-man guitar virtuoso hailing out of Los Angeles, California. The sole member of Myrone was similar to Buckethead in that he wore a mask. Many of the long notes he held was reminiscent of Joe Satriani. He later admitted to me that Satriani is a major influence. He played his guitar over top of ‘80s style keyboard samples, which were part of a soundtrack to a video game.

"Hey there ladies and gents. We are currently stranded in Junction, Texas. Our van (Veronica) has finally called it quits. We're looking to solve the issue but that requires money.

We love you guys and thank you!"

The group has now also posted this update via Facebook: "Thank you everyone that's donated to our van crisis today. You all rule worlds. Some of you quite frankly caused our jaws to drop.
