MEGADETH guitarist Glen Drover has issued the following update:
"I am now in multi-task mode right now, dividing time with my family and learning these two new songs ['Ashes In Your Mouth' and 'The Skull Beneath The Skin'] for this U.S. tour (which I pretty much know anyways, but I want it as spot-on as I can get it).
"The tour now is right around the corner... Man, this summer sure went by fast!!
"We shoot our new video very, very soon ('Never Walk Alone') which is one of my favorite songs on the new record. This will be my third MEGA video, which is pretty cool, if you ask me. I haven't seen the guys for a few months now, so it will be fun to hang out for a day of filming before we go into rehearsals for the tour.
"We can't wait to see all of you out there."
MEGADETH's U.S. tour this fall kicks off in Anchorage, Alaska on September 4, taking the band through 24 U.S. cites ending up in Norfolk Virginia on October 6. Support on the dates will come from IN THIS MOMENT and THE CONFESSION.
MEGADETH's latest CD, "United Abominations", has sold 122,000 copies in the United States since its May 15 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
