It sure seems like Tuesday is going to take the cake if the barrage of touring information that I am seeing hit my Media Mailbox has anything to say about it. I won’t dance around the topic anymore and just say that “The Metal Alliance” tour is returning and brings you GOATWHORE!!! Check out the poster, full press release and dates. I will close up with additional editorial as usual.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Having seen almost all of the Metal Alliance tours I can safely say that they are a great time and bring a lot of like-minded Metalheads together. Interestingly enough, on this package the only band I actually have some background in is the headlining Goatwhore. That means if I make this one that I will have my work cut out for me. What do you readers think about this tour? Is it something that you enjoy supporting each and every year? If you have attended in the past please tell me what your two favorite Metal Alliance tours were and if you think you will be hitting this one. You can do that down in the comments section below.
