Vocalist Riley McShane Announces His Exit From Allegaeon


Vocalist Riley McShane has announced his departure from Fort Collins, CO-based technical death metal outfit Allegaeon. A statement shared via his Instagram today, August 24th, reads as follows:

“I am no longer a member of the music project Allegaeon. I wish the remaining members nothing but the best in their careers – I have nothing but admiration & respect for their musical abilities.

To our fans – I’m sorry if this news causes heavy hearts in any of you. Allegaeon, however, has always been able to find new members with talent, creativity, and fire in their bellies. I’m sure whoever replaces me behind the microphone will take the band in a fantastic creative direction.

To the friends I’ve made along the way on this journey – you are loved so dearly and my gratitude for your support is immeasurable. I look forward to keeping in touch and staying close as always.

The rest of the band will still be touring in EU this November – make sure to buy a ticket, buy some merch, and support them & the rest of the band however you can.

Thank you Allegaeon for the years. Good luck and be well.”

McShane joined the band back in 2015, filling the spot vacated by original vocalist, Ezra Haynes. The group’s final album with McShane, “Damnum“, saw a release this past February. Thus far a replacement for McShane has yet to be announced.
