||Colorado tech death metallers Allegaeon have plenty of news to share. The group will be giving fans one last chance to see them live before they return to the studio to record their third full-length album and follow-up to Formshifter. The new tour is scheduled to begin on December 1st and concludes on December 21st, with dates throughout Texas, the west coast, and the Pacific Northwest. Additionally, Allegaeon has also announced that guitarist Michael Stancel will be joining the band full time. While in writing mode, Stancel and Allegaeon have been collaborating on new songs. So, new tour, new album and new guitarist!
Guitarist Ryan Glisan left the band in September to focus on a new project.
Allegaeon vocalist Ezra Haynes comments on the addition of Stancel to the lineup: "I'm more than pleased with some of the big changes happening in the Allegaeon camp. We'll be hitting the road this December with our newest addition to the Allegaeon family, Michael Stancel. He filled in for the recently departed Ryan Glisan on our last tour and within just a few shows we knew he was our guy. He has a great head on his shoulders, shares the same interest in the dumb pop music we listen to, shreds like a beast and is ONLY 19 years old! We look forward to forging a great relationship with Michael and can't wait for the rest of the world to hear the final product."
Guitarist Greg Burgess comments on the upcoming shows: "Allegaeon is incredibly excited to be heading back out on the road this December with Silence The Messenger. The Pacific North West has always seemed to escape our tour routing in the past, and it has been on our to do list to correct this. This tour throughout Texas, the south west and up through the north will be last shows for Allegaeon on the Formshifter album cycle. Which means it's your last chance to see us playing some of these tunes! Filling in on the drums for the tour will be our friend and sick drummer Brandon Park."
