The Metal Alliance Tour Gets High on Fire

Obligatory pleasant new year greeting here. Don’t pretend like you didn’t miss us, fuckers.

So. Shortly before our holiday hiatus, the organizers of the now-annual Metal Alliance Tour announced the 2013 line-up, which is, without a doubt, their sweetest bill yet; they also promised that more bands would soon be announced. Thus, this morning we have High on Fire added to the already-stellar package of Anthrax (performing Among the Living in its entirety), Exodus, Municipal Waste, and Holy Grail. HoF actually kinda stand out amongst those bands because they’re the only group on the trek who aren’t pure thrash. I can’t really imagine anyone with half a brain complaining, though. You have to have some copious amounts of sand in your vagina to be upset about seeing High on Fire.

The tour kicks off in March. There are still a couple of bands left to be announced, but I have to imagine this bill is already enough to persuade you to attend. Here are dates:
