Thrash metal legends Metal Church play The Chance in Poughkeepsie this Friday, April 8 at 7pm.

Metal Church formed out of San Francisco, California in 1980 and relocated to Aberdeen, Washington. Their debut album was released in 1984. In 2015, Metal Church announced on their official facebook page that they would be reuniting with singer Mike Howe (Howe played with the band on the successful 1989 release Blessing in Disguise featuring the single "Badlands"). The band released their latest album XI on March 25, 2016 via Rat Pak Records. Guitarist and founding Metal Church member Kurt Vanderhoof said, "Sometimes I still can't believe it myself, No one would have ever thought Mike would return after his departure almost 2 decades ago." Don't miss the return of Metal Church with singer Mike Howe this weekend. This show is gonna rock! After show party will immediately follow next door at Nuddy Bar and Grill.

Tickets for Metal Church with special guests: Hatchet, Painmask, Christian Gisondi Music, and Day After Dawn are on sale and available through The Chance box office at 845-471-1966 and
