OMG Megadeth are coming back to Philly to melt our faces
Come on rockers, this is Megadeth we’re talking about here! They’re returning to Philly, playing the Electric Factory on March 20th, with Suicidal Tendencies, Children of Bodom and Havok.
Still at the helm of Megadeth all these years is Dave Mustaine with band members Kiko Loureiro (formerly of Angra) on guitar, David “Junior” Ellefson on bass, and drummer Chris Adler (Lamb of God). Megadeth release their new album, Dystopia, on January 22nd. It’s the band’s 15th album since their independent debut, Killing Is My Business… and Business Is Good!, emerged in 1985, followed by their major label debut, Peace Sells… but Who’s Buying?.
Since leaving Metallica (or getting kicked out of the band, depending on the story you want to subscribe to), Megadeth have been as premiere a metal band as there can be, with a long track record and an incredible body of work on their resume, including 1991’s Rust In Peace, and 1992’s Countdown to Extinction, the two releases that really catapulted the band into mainstream success.
Below, listen to “Fatal Illusion,” and “The Threat Is Real,” two new songs available now from their forthcoming album, Dystopia. Tickets to their show at the Factory go on sale this Friday, December 11th at Noon. Go here for more information.
