Dark Angel to reunite for next year’s Keep It True festival

dark angelL.A. thrash metal legends Dark Angel have announced that they will reunite for at least one performance at the Keep It True XVII festival, which will take place at Tauberfrankenhalle in Lauda-Königshofen, Germany on April 25-26, 2014. This will be the band’s first show with original vocalist Don Doty since his departure in 1987. Also participating in the reunion are drummer Gene Hoglan, guitarists Eric Meyer and Justin Zych, and bassist Mike Gonzalez.

About the reunion, Doty told Uwe Harms of Germany’s Radio Gehacktes, “I’d like to give the band another chance to see how we used to do it. I have pretty much assembled everybody. It is going to happen. Mike is still playing with one or two other bands, just as Gene is, but they’re gonna go ahead and reschedule with the other bands so they can fit Dark Angel in. Dark Angel will come first. Gene is quite busy, as we all know, and he does have a lot of things going on [including Testament and Dethklok], but seeing this opportunity, he definitely wants to be on board, and he’s very excited about this, as I am.”

He also talked about the future of the band, stating, “We started to book some shows. I’m still waiting for our manager, Rob, to go ahead and see what he has in store for us. We’re gonna take it one step at a time. [In addition to the Keep It True], there’s gonna be a few other [dates] that are gonna be happening; I can’t really release those yet.”

Dark Angel first split up in 1992 and were last active from 2002 to 2005, when they went on hiatus due to vocalist Ron Rinehart’s health problems. Their last record, Time Does Not Heal, was released in 1991.
