(New York, NY) — THE 2011 METALLIANCE TOUR will have to move their Chicago show this Sunday due to recent gang-related activity in the vicinity of the venue. The city has imposed a seven day hold on the venue’s operations license forcing the show to a new venue called BADA BREW (802 Theodore Street).
The show will go on as scheduled. All tickets will be honored.
THE 2011 METALLIANCE TOUR has enjoyed early success with two sold out shows on it’s inaugural run thus far. Headlined by HELMET, ST VITUS and CROWBAR and is proudly supported by metal heavyweights KYLESA, RED FANG, HOWL and ATLAS MOTH on all dates. The tour is sponsored by Revolver Magazine, Loudtrax, Brooklyn Vegan, Mosh Potatoes Cookbook and Giddy Up! Sauces.

Legendary alternative metal band HELMET is performing their 1992 platinum-selling release of Meantime in its entirety. The Interscope Records release gave the band mainstream attention with songs like “Unsung” and “In The Meantime”. With the band’s renewed success after getting back together in 2004, this tour is one of the most anticipated of 2011.
One of the most highly influential Doom Metal bands in America, SAINT VITUS are regarded as one of the first bands of the genre starting out as early as the1970’s. The band featuring Scott “Wino” Weinrich, bassist Mark Adams, guitarist Dave Chandler and drummer Henry Vasquez have influenced so many bands in Doom and Metal .
