Tour de Force

Here Are The Dates for The Dying Fetus-Lead Metal Alliance Tour



Even though last year’s trek ended like a pile-up on the highway, the organizers of the Metal Alliance tour seemed to persevere: two weeks ago, they teased a new incarnation of the tour, this one with Dying Fetus and The Acacia Strain, Jungle Rot, Black Crown Initiate, and others rounding out the line-up.

Well, it turns out that wasn’t all a bunch of conjecture. The Metal Alliance Tour will hit the road in April of 2016, and will feature all of those bands, as well as support from Reaping Asmodea and Nylithia. Check out dates below.

It’ll be interesting to see how this tour fares. The slow decay of last year’s Metal Alliance sparked a ton of discussion about how bands do business and survive in this modern climate. Then again, last year’s bill also had a dude considered to be one of metal’s most contentious figures as its primary talent. Dying Fetus, meanwhile, seem like dudes dedicated to getting on that stage, while Dave Matrise of Jungle Rot is all about keeping tours civil as opposed to stirring shit up.
