Man, what a fucking awful name for a metal tour. “Metal, Arise!” What the fuck is that all about? Was that some feeble attempt at being cool? There should be no punctuation in the name of a fucking metal tour. None.
But, I digress. The first ever Metal, Arise! Tour for developing metal artists will feature Metal Blade’s Allegaeon, Earache’s The Browning and Century Media’s The Devastated. The tour gets underway in August and all of the dates for it can be found after the jump.
“We’re all really excited for the announcement of the Metal, Arise! Tour,” says Allegaeon in a statement. “Majority of the dates are in cities we haven’t yet had the pleasure of playing. With all the venues being as reputable as they are and it being a tour with companies such as Live Nation, IndieMerchCo and the labels backing it, there couldn’t be a better tour for us to be a part of at the moment.”
“I think a lot of kids are going to be excited about seeing us and the other bands on the tour,” said the Devastated. “We’re three new bands who all bring something to the table that’s going to make for a killer show. It’s going to be the sort of tour where kids can discover new bands and proudly say: ‘I saw them back then!’”
