Allegaeon Confirms Riley McShane As New Vocalist‏

10

Allegaeon just completed over a month’s worth of touring with label-mates Act of Defiance, which featured Riley McShane on the microphone for his first full tour with the band. Upon returning home, Allegaeon is prepared to announce McShane as their new permanent vocalist! Riley has become a permanent member just in time for the band to begin work on their new album.

Guitarist Greg Burgess comments: “We are extremely excited to officially announce Riley McShane as the permanent vocalist of Allegaeon. For those who have come to see us on the last two tours, I’m sure this will come as no surprise; his past work with Son Of Aurelius, Inanimate Existence, and Continuum speaks loudly as to who the man is as a musician and what kind of weapons he brings to the band. As a long time friend, and being a huge fan of his vocal abilities, this is very exciting for us. New blood is always a great catalyst for creativity, and to bring in a musician of his caliber has been nothing short of awesome. Not only has he been a perfect fit for the group personality-wise, but has also provided us with an array of new vocal techniques to use at our disposal. So, Riley, welcome! All Hail Science!”

Updates on new material from Allegaeon will be available later this winter. Elements of the Infinite, the band’s most recent effort, cracked the Billboard Charts and debuted at #25 on the Hard Music Chart

Allegaeon’s “Threshold Of Perception” Brand Spankin’ New Music Video

143

Allegaeon has launched a brand new video for “Threshold of Perception” from their most recent album, “Elements of the Infinite.” The band shot and edited the video themselves, with vocalist Ezra Haynes serving as the clip’s director. Allegaeon shot while they were in between their recent tours with Chimaira and Arsis where they ended up with some days off in Florida. Haynes elaborates on the project.“After doing a month long trek with Chimaira followed by another month long tour with Arsis, we found ourselves just north of Naples, Florida for 5 days,” says vocalist Ezra Haynes. “I know, sounds horrible right? A beach pretty much within walking distance. Who wants that? Anyway, we figured we’d be somewhat productive and film a play through since we had so much time off before returning home. Well, It didn’t really turn out that way. We thought to ourselves, ‘Let’s take one final blow at this Crabcore situation we have going on and just make a dumb video.’ So, we parked our rears on a beach for a few hours and filmed anything that came to our heads. Now we have a floaty wearing shredding crabbing seagull having hip-hop hyping death metal video that promotes good oral hygiene. Enjoy!”
