GENE HOGLAN, DON DOTY On DARK ANGEL Reunion Rumors

Recently, some rumors have been spreading across the web about an upcoming Dark Angel reunion. Drummer GENE HOGLAN and vocalist Don Doty have taken the time to make a statement addressing these rumors, which will hopefully put any confusion to rest.

Gene states,

“Howdy everybody. Now that I’m off the road for a few minutes, I’d like to address these Dark Angel rumors that are flying around. Yes, we have been talking about doing something next year, and although it looks like possibly some festivals could be in the works, right now it’s just speculation. Don Doty and myself have been in contact for the first time in many many years, and it’s been great to re-connect with my old friend. Fortunately, I’ve remained great buddies with all the DFA guys after all these years, and we do try to stay in contact with each other and see each other when we can, especially since we are all spread out over the Western US. We are indeed discussing the possibility of a reunion, and yes, the DFA guys are well aware of all of my other commitments, such as Testament, Dethklok and the like. So again, we are moving forward s-l-o-w-l-y, with hopes to getting Dark Angel’s wings off the ground for festival season in 2014.”

Dark Angel vocalist Don Doty adds,

“Members of Dark Angel are currently sitting down for talks for a reunion. This will be for the year 2014. All are excited. I was talking on a radio show recently and had said that all members would be attending, this statement may have been misunderstood. Myself, Gene, Mike, Eric and Jim are talking and when talks are complete a statement will be given. We will know more in the months to come. We will let you know as it unravels.”

Earlier this month, GENE HOGLAN announced the THE GENE HOGLAN EXPERIENCE, an intimate gathering of metal fans brought together to celebrate the legacy and career of one of metal’s most legendary drummers. Hoglan is pleased to announce two additional dates being scheduled as part of this touring event. Fans can now witness THE GENE HOGLAN EXPERIENCE on October 17 in Coralville, IA at West Music Coralville, and on October 19 in New Berlin, WI at Cascio Interstate Music. These dates come in addition to Hoglan’s September 20 appearance at Vern’s Tavern in Calgary, AB. See below for times and details and stay tuned for more dates coming soon.

GENE HOGLAN EXPERIENCE Appearances:

9/20 – Calgary, AB @ Vern’s Tavern – Part of Noctis 666 Metal Festival and Conference – 3:00PM

10/17 – Coralville, IA @ West Music Coralville – Signing TBA – 6:00PM

10/19 – New Berlin, WI @ Cascio Interstate Music – Part of Drummer Fest / FREE – 11:00AM

GENE HOGLAN came up with this concept to give the fans what they want: the ultimate “Gene” experience. In addition to telling personal stories, as mentioned above, Hoglan will reveal some of his secret techniques and tips to help all drummers and musicians of all levels. More information will be announced soon in regards to THE GENE HOGLAN EXPERIENCE.

Gene Hoglan is heralded and  is inspirational to many, even outside of his drumming and now celebrates a 30-year career in music as metal’s most in-demand legendary drummer. Hoglan is the only metal drummer to accomplish two #1 records on the Rock charts in 2012 with Testament’s Dark Roots Of Earth and Dethklok’s Dethalbum III. Testament’s Dark Roots Of Earth also went to #9 in the world and #12 in the US, and Dethklok’s Dethalbum III also went to #10 in the US, and thru a major lifestyle change has beat diabetes and lost over 160 lbs.
