Allegaeon Wrapping Up Work On New Album
March 25, 2010
Allegaeon is currently finishing work on their Metal Blade debut, 'Fragments Of Form And Function', with producer Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage) at Flatline Audio. Finishing an album hasn't quelled their drive to continuously be playing shows, however, as they've recently been added as a support band to the Fort Collins, CO stop of the Fear Factory and Winds Of Plague tour.

Vocalist Ezra Haynes offers up the latest update: "Well, The record is just about done. We've been listening to rough mixes and I think it's safe to say that we're all pretty pleased with what it has been molded into so far. You can tell that every member of Allegaeon and the overall product being 'Fragments of Form and Function' has matured greatly since our EP release in 2008 and believe it or not 'Fragments of Form and Function' is a hell of a lot heavier. Everyone has stepped up tremendously, it's loaded with groove, shred, blast beats and I feel my vocal performance is my best to date. We are all extremely stoked for the world to hear this album and we can't wait to hit the road this Summer in support of it."

Allegaeon has posted the first video in a series of video studio updates to www.MetalBlade.tv. The video can be seen at this location.

Allegaeon w/ Fear Factory, Winds Of Plague, Dirge Within, Periphery:
04/05 - Fort Collins, CO - The Aggie Theatre

February 25, 2010

(vocals) further states: "We are about halfway through our second headline tour in a row. This second tour is proving to be just as successful as the first. Despite the epic weather, the Plague Army has proven its loyalty night after night. We truly have the best and craziest fans and words can't express how much we appreciate every last person that has shows support. Despite the relentless touring we have been doing, we have managed to set up a mobile studio and have been working on new material. Fans of both 'Decimate The Weak' and 'The Great Stone War' will be pleased with the new jams. As we head back west we are very pleased to announce that we will be supporting the reunited Fear Factory on their first tour back in the states. No rest for the wicked."
