April 19, 2013, 4 years ago
Joe D, host of Saturday Night Scream, which airs Saturday nights on 95X in Syracuse, New York, spoke with MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine earlier this week about the band's new album, Super Collider, and this year's edition of Gigantour.
Regarding this year's Gigantour, Mustaine said: "I'm kind of just dropping little hints here and there, and I wanted to share that news with you about (DISTURBED frontman David Draiman's new project) DEVICE so that you could run with that before anybody else says anything."
Mustaine says that while he’s fine with confirming Device, he’s holding the rest of the bands for Gigantour under wraps.

Gigantour tour was founded in 2005 with dates across North America, and the 2006 and 2007 line-ups also traveled to Australia. The bands appearing at the festival were chosen by Mustaine because he wanted to "put together a festival that consisted of positive bands that play heavy music in a high energy environment." The name Gigantour was inspired by the classic 1960s anime Gigantor.
Gigantour 2012 featured MOTÖRHEAD, VOLBEAT and LACUNA COIL and ran from early January to early March.
