Thrash metal band Flotsam and Jetsam will play The Chance in Poughkeepsie on Friday, May 24 at 7:30pm.
Flotsam and Jetsam originally formed out of Phoenix, Arizona in 1981. The band is notable for featuring bassist Jason Newsted, who left the band shortly the release of the band's debut album to join Metallica. The band's only constant member over the years through various lineup changes has been lead singer Eric "A.K." Knutson. Drummer and founding member Kelly Smith left the band in 2014 and hand picked longtime friend and fellow drummer Jason Bittner of Shadows Fall as his replacement. Bittner left in 2017 to join Overkill and was replaced by bassist Ken Mary. The band released a new album called The End of Chaos in January. Openers for Flotsam and Jetsam will be Dead By Wednesday, Last Pharaoh, Deveria, and Vision Serpent. A second stage upstairs in the Loft will feature the bands Vicious Rumors, Cloven Hoof, Voodoo Terror Tribe, Death Island and Rapture. Get out and rock this Friday night! Sure to be a great show.
