It is one thing to get a CD to sound great, but now we have to live up to that sound live as well, and I know from talking to Shawn, Henry, and Matt that we are going to bring it!!! The tour will be with our Metal Blade record label mates Allegaeon. I urge you to pick up the CD and then come see us live to compare and contrast!"
Allegaeon guitarist Greg Burgess adds: "We're very excited to be a part of this tour. As a long time Megadeth fan it's beyond humbling to be on the same bill with Act Of Defiance, let alone coheadlining the tour with them. Fans can expect a very exciting set from us including some brand new songs we will unveil and of course the oldies but goodies. Prepare for a ass load of notes!"

With a hefty resumé that chronicles time spent riffing and shredding in Jag Panzer, Nevermore, and a seven-year stint in Megadeth, Chris Broderick's pedigree speaks for itself. Furthermore, joined by powerhouse drummer - and fellow Megadeth alumnus and former Eidolon drummer - Shawn Drover, bassist Matt Bachand (Shadows Fall) and vocalist Henry Derek (ex-Scar The Martyr), the band are a truly formidable metallic behemoth. Birth And The Burial is ten tracks of armor-plated, state of the art heaviness.
