Helmet, Crowbar and Saint Vitus recently announced that they would be teaming up for the first annual Metalliance tour and now the official dates have been revealed for this gigantic run, which is bound to melt amps from Texas to the Pacific Northwest. The tour kicks off on St. Patrick's Day in Dallas.

Helmet will be playing their 1992 classic 'Meantime' from front to back on the tour, while Crowbar will sling sludge from their new album, 'Sever the Wicked Hand.' Saint Vitus, lead by Wino, will dole out the doom in copious amounts. Bring your earplugs or don't. This tour was meant to be heard, as loud and distorted as possible.
