Hail! Issues Band Touring Update

Andreas Kisser of Hail! has issued the following update about the band's time in New York:

"For everybody asking, here’s a brief rundown of our schedule in New York. Sunday night, January 24th - after a long day of travel we all made it to town. Tomorrow we rehearse a whole new set for the first time and then are headed to Eddie Trunk’s radio show in the evening.

"Tuesday we’re doing a taping for Sirius Radio and hopefully going to hook up with former Iron Maiden legend, Paul Di’anno. When we heard that Paul was playing BB King’s the night after us we flipped because we thought it might provide the opportunity to play together because we’re all HUGE Maiden fans. He has another gig so unfortunately we couldn’t pull it off. Paul is a true metal warrior and he deserves all of our respect for his major contribution to birthing the metal scene. HAIL! Paul Di’anno.

"Due to his announcement on radio last week, we will confirm that Overkill vocalist, Bobby 'Blitz' Ellsworth, will be joining us onstage for some fun. Overkill have been crushing the scene for 25 years and it is an honor to have Bobby play with us. The foundation of HAIL! is to pay tribute to all the great musicians and bands that have committed their lives and broke their asses to keeping our lifestyle and scene alive and with their 15th studio record, Ironbound, being released in a few weeks, Overkill epitomizes that commitment. HAIL! Overkill. In true HAIL! fashion, we have some other surprises guests and our first east coast date is destined to be huge. You’re not going to want to miss this!"

I'll be there tonight! I already met and got pics with the Hail! guys and Di'Anno yesterday outside the McGraw Hill building before their Eddie Trunk interview. They were nice guys, but seemed dumb as a bag of bricks. And poor Andreas, no one would talk to him except me!
