The first leg of the United States tour kicks off on March 24th in Portland, ME and runs through April 8th wrapping up in Poughkeepsie, NY at The Chance. The record release party for XI will be the show on March 25th in Manchester, NH at the Jewel Nightclub. Admission to that show is free and is on a first come first served basis. METAL CHURCH will be heading over to Europe in May and then return back to Europe for more dates in July and August. Find all dates below! »XI«, the band’s 11th studio album available worldwide on March 25th, marks the return of legendary vocalist and front man Mike Howe. The album has been getting critical and fan praise alike with Decibel Magazine recently stating in a review: "On »XI«, Howe croon-roars like a man possessed, delivering a varied, vital, almost unbelievably pitch-perfect performance. As for the riffs, Vanderhoof remains a master crafter of speed-metal mayhem – a faithful keeper of the once-bustling aural bridge connecting NWOBHM and thrash metal proper."
