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

Biography
HOME TOWN: Bethesda, MD
MEMBERS:
Spencer Sotelo - Vocals
Misha Mansoor - Guitars
Alex Bois - Guitars
Tom Murphy - Bass
Matt Halpern - Drums
Jake Bowen - Guitars

How many clich� band biographies do you read that tells the reader just how damn entertaining they are? All of them? This bio is boring, don�t read it if you have a life, go buy an Aston Martin instead. Periphery started several years ago by the meeting of Misha Mansoor and Jake Veredika. Misha was walking past a dumpster in Rockville, MD which had a young Jake sleeping inside. Misha startled Jake, which angered and confused him; he began yelling nonsensical words in a rhythmic manner which led Misha to believe that Jake would be capable of singing in a metal band. After several rounds of Rochambeau the two realized that playing metal was the only thing they could agree upon. The two wrote songs, sounds, and ideas for many years and began posting them on the Internet. Misha�s lust for multi-track layers and semi-consensual intercourse coupled with Jake�s off-world riffs, cantilevered face and unique screaming has resulted in many butt-cancer inducing little ditties. By promoting themselves online through n00dz (kthx3.1415) people from all over the world began visiting on a daily basis making the numbers jump and increasing carpet baby poplulation by 56.3%, and the duo somehow realized they had the beginnings of a successful project. The search for suitable members began with bassist, world traveler and local kindergarten art teacher, Tom Murphy. Guitarist Alex Bois, of �A Different Self� (national metal act) and �Richard Simmons on Ice� (gay dudes skating and sometimes making love after shows) fame. Next up was the multi-faceted Travis Orbin, or The Orbinator as he is affectionately referred to these days (unless you have no soul�). Sick drummer (poor guy is a hypochondriac), session drummer (which usually means you�re too good for a band but we beat him with his own legs instead of telling him that) and avid Juggernaut Bitch fan (a must for any living organism). When Orbinator drums, things asplode, the end. One day all the members were out shopping for new pants at Forever 21, and the lady working there asked to join the band. Then the store caught fire and the lady turned out to be Jake Bowen, local superhero and microwavable popcorn fan. Since all the members had short hair, it was only logical to let Jake join, because having two Jakes in a band is never confusing! He played a Mesa amplifier, and Misha found that funny because it sorta sounded like a child with no mouth attempting to scream. Also the names were similar. So the band is now complete! We wanna tour a lot and finish the recording of their first album and/or ep. And yes we will finally do a metal version of �Baby, baby please, baby�. Bread and Cheese!
