HIGH ON FIRE Added To 'Metal Alliance Tour'

Oakland, California trio HIGH ON FIRE has been added to the ANTHRAX-headlined third annual Metal Alliance Tour, which is set to kick off in March and run through the month of April.

ANTHRAX will perform its fan-favorite 1987 album "Among The Living" in its entirety during the trek, which will feature additional support from EXODUS, MUNICIPAL WASTE, HOLY GRAIL and a couple of additional bands, to be announced at a later date.

"ANTHRAX has always been one of my favorite bands, and to have them be part of our tour is beyond expression. This is surely going to be one for the history books!" stated tour co-organizer Dan Rozenblum.

Added ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian: "Holy crap am I so excited about this year's Metal Alliance Tour!

"It's been a great year and a half for us since 'Worship Music' came out and to cap it off with a Grammy nomination.

"This is such a perfect lineup. To make this tour even more special, we will be playing our 'Among The Living' record in its entirety. I can't wait to play 'Horror Of It All'!

"Come on out and worship with us, my friends. You do not want to miss this. USA on Hell one more time."
