On a live video streaming via Periscope yesterday, MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine has confirmed that LAMB OF GOD will not tour with MEGADETH in North America in February next year on band’s first U.S. run of dates in support of its new album, “Dystopia”. He states:”[I am] really excited about coming back to the States and doing our North American tour there. The dates are coming along pretty well. And we’ve got three bands we’re gonna be taking out with us there. Not completely sure about confirming all of them, but if they do confirm, the guys that I’m thinking about, no, it’s not LAMB OF GOD for North America, if those guys are on it, I think it’s gonna be a cool, cool lineup.”
MEGADETH and LAMB OF GOD will tour U.K. in just a few days. Dates can be seen here.
MEGADETH‘s fifteenth studio album, “Dystopia”, will be released on January 22, 2016. Album was recorded earlier in the year in Nashville, Tennessee and was mixed by Josh Wilbur, who has previously worked with LAMB OF GOD, ALL THAT REMAINS and GOJIRA.
MEGADETH will release 12-inch single, “The Threat Is Real”, next month on Record Store Day’s annual Black Friday bonanza. Besides “The Threat Is Real”, there will be a cover of FEAR‘s “Foreign Policy”. Both songs are taken from MEGADETH‘s upcoming album, “Dystopia”.
