What's the best news I'm gonna share here on THE ROCK FATHER today? It's that ALLEGAEON have announced the "Get Rekt" Tour, and in addition to including THE AGONIST on select dates, my boys, PRODUCT OF HATE (PoH) will be along for nearly the entire run. As some of you may know, in addition to running this website, I do have some other irons in the fire, one of which is serving as Co-Manager for PRODUCT OF HATE - my dear friends, who I've known since 2009 and have been working with since 2010. PRODUCT OF HATE will be touring in support of their debut album for NAPALM Records, which is currently being mixed by James Murphy (TESTAMENT, DEATH, OBITUARY) at SafeHouse Production in Florida.
