Meldrum Announce West Coast Tour
Meldrum drummer Gene Hoglan made the following statement: "Hey everybody! We're all super-excited to announce this upcoming MELDRUM tour! It's gonna be a few selected West Coast dates, where we unveil the new line-up of rip-snortin' b*****es, and I'd love for everybody to come out and get your heads handed to ya! We're gonna be focusing on the upcoming 'Lifer' material which is a big step forward for the band, and we can't wait to pummel all of ya with some heavy. We'll see you on the road, people!"
Meldrum completed writing and recording the band's album with drummer Gene Hoglan, along with the new lineup Michele Madden (vocals) and Laura Christine (bass) last November. The surviving band members plan to release album tracks during the tour in tribute to their fallen band-mate, Michelle Meldrum, who died from a cystic growth on her brain.
