The annual Metal Alliance tour has just announced its first leg of dates. Led by Deicide, the 2015 lineup will visit the U.S. and Canada during the months of May and June.

The heaviness of this year's Metal Alliance tour can only be measured in tons. Along with Deicide, Entombed A.D., Hate Eternal, Black Crown Initiate and Svart Crown will be a part of the traveling hellfest. French extreme metal band Svart Crown is a new edition to the Metal Alliance tour. The band's latest full-length, Profane, was released in 2013 to acclaim from fans.

As for Decide, frontman Glen Benton recently shook off his infamous character in an interview with Loudwire. The man who used to repeatedly burn an inverted cross into his forehead is now just a normal guy with normal responsibilities. “I’m just a regular person, just a stay at home dad,” Benton said. “I take care of my 12-year-old, send him off to school in the morning. I grocery shop, I wash laundry, mow the grass, I’m just a regular person … during the day. At night, when the Cross starts showing, then I put my Deicide boots on.”
