Megadeth hit the stage with their new line-up for the first time at the Festival D'été De Québec in Quebec City on July 18th, featuring mainstays Dave Mustaine (vocals, guitars) and David Ellefson (bass), and now including Kiko Loureiro (guitars/Angra) and Chris Alder (drums/Lamb Of God). New fan-filmed video from the show has been posted online and can be viewed below:
Megadeth and Lamb Of God are joining forces for a full UK & Eire co-headline tour in November 2015. The tour will coincide with the release, later this year, of Megadeth’s 15th Studio album through Tradecraft / Universal. Lamb of God’s new album VII: Sturm und Drang will be released July 24th via Epic Records in North America and Nuclear Blast Entertainment throughout the rest of the world. Check out a new tour trailer video, streaming below.
Dave Mustaine says: “Having just finished an amazing record full of high-energy heavy metal with Chris Adler, Kiko Loureiro and David Ellefson, I am excited to announce this tour and see all of the metal fans come out for this one. I literally can’t wait to hit the stage again!”
Mark Morton from Lamb Of God adds: “I have to say that it’s definitely exciting to be announcing this one! I’m more than pleased to let the world know that Lamb Of God will be sharing the bill with thrash metal legends, Megadeth, for five shows in the UK and Ireland, from November 9th-15th! It’s been almost a decade since we’ve had the opportunity to tour with Megadeth, and we’re absolutely thrilled to be teaming up with them once again for these very special UK dates. Also appearing will be our good friends and long time co-conspirators Children Of Bodom and Sylosis. This lineup is unstoppable! If you’re not stoked about this bill, then you very simply do not like heavy metal! Take a plane, take a boat, hitch a ride, take the tube, bring your Wellies…see you there!”
