Several of the participating artists commented:


“Always a blast to get on the stage with my Metal Allegiance homies. Never played on the Island with ’em! This is a first for me… I’m looking forward to getting on any stage at this point. We’ll be tearing through some Metal Allegiance originals, classic metal songs along with some Anthrax tunes from the records I made with them… It is Anthrax’s 40th anniversary after all… Come on out, metalheads!”


“Metal Allegiance is back! Can’t wait to hit the stage again and shed some of these COVID pounds! Haha. It’s been way too long since we hit it and this show is a special one as it’s on Metal Allegiance’s home turf of Long Island. New York audiences have some catching up to do with our West Coast friends. Let’s show them how it’s done!”


“After an unexpected year and half vacation, I am sooooooo excited to finally be playing live again! And what better way to break my post-COVID cherry than with my metal brothers in Metal Allegiance! And what better place than my old home sweet home, Strong Island… I can’t wait!”


“We are all looking forward to hitting the stage once again as Metal Allegiance, this time in Long Island, our symbolic hometown, sight of many meetings (and tacos) and location of our first recording. After the year or so we’ve all had, this first (and only) Metal Allegiance gig of 2021 will have an extra special energy. Don’t miss it!”

Rob Rush (94.3 The Shark) will serve as a guest MC at the concert, which is set to be filmed for a future streaming event and live release. Killcode, Magus Beast and To The Pain will open.

Laura Jane Grace (Against Me!) To Perform At Four Seasons Total Landscaping In Philadelphia

Laura Jane Grace (Against Me!) and Brendan Kelly (The Lawrence Arms) will be performing at Four Seasons Total Landscaping in Philadelphia, PA on August 21. That business, which sits between a crematorium and an erotic book store, previously made headlines after Rudy Giuliani infamously held a press conference there for Donald Trump in November 2020. You can purchase tickets HERE and commemorative shirts HERE. Grace commented:

“This will be the first and last time Brendan and I will play in front of a landscaping company and we promise it will be better than that MAGA shit show.”

Kelly added:

“Ever since I saw my personal hero Rudy Giuliani humiliate himself for the good of the nation at Four Seasons Total Landscaping, I knew I wanted to go there and follow in his footsteps, then shop at the porn store, and eventually move off this mortal coil by being burned at the neighboring crematorium. It’s not often you get to touch history, but that’s what Laura and I will be doing in this most hallowed of political and mulching grounds.”
