Allegaeon announces new vocalist
Colorado's Allegaeon has found a replacement for frontman Ezra Haynes, who left the band this past fall. Now joining the group as permanent vocalist is Riley McShane (Son Of Aurelius). Here is a statement from guitarist Greg Burgess:
"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!"
