I had a chance to catch ALLEGAEON live a few times last year when my boys in PRODUCT OF HATE were out on the road with them for the "Get Rekt Tour." I'd long-had their albums in the library here at Rock Father HQ, but the live show is where they really excel, and it turned me into a bigger fan. On September 23, their catalog expands with the release of PROPONENT FOR SENTIENCE, their fourth full-length album for Metal Blade Records, and first to feature vocalist Riley McShane. Pre-order packages for the new album went live today, previews for which can be seen and heard below...

"With a lyrical arc rooted in science-fiction yet uncomfortably encroaching upon the reality of the present, it captures the Fort Collins, Colorado natives at their most ambitious and accomplished, pushing the boundaries even further than on their three previous critically acclaimed full-lengths"
