This is quite a tour. I'm surprised AA are teaming with MegaDave. Figured they were enough of a draw on their own.

MEGADETH will team up with AMON AMARTH, METAL CHURCH and HAVOK for a U.S. tour in the fall, BLABBERMOUTH.NET can reveal. The trek, which is expected to include an as-yet-undisclosed fifth band, will last for five weeks.

MEGADETH's last full U.S. tour took place earlier in the year and featured support from SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, CHILDREN OF BODOM and HAVOK.

MEGADETH is continuing to tour in support of its fifteenth album, "Dystopia", which shifted 49,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending January 28. In terms of pure album sales, it opened with 48,000 copies, marking MEGADETH's highest-charting album since 1992's "Countdown To Extinction" debuted and peaked at No. 2 on the chart dated August 1 of that year. "Dystopia" also logged the group's best sales week since 2007, when "United Abominations" landed at No. 8 with first-week sales of 54,000.

MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine recently spoke to Kerrang! Radio about the band's drummer situation after recently recruiting Dirk Verbeuren (SOILWORK) to play drums for the group while Chris Adler is busy touring with LAMB OF GOD.

Saw Amon Amarth recently, they put on a HELL of a show. I'm fucking pumped already, but I'm seriously wondering who the final band is gonna be. Worthy of being a middle act, or simply another opener? Never been a fan of Metal Church, someone guide me.

Wasn't too happy with Havok's set with Megadeth last time, they were MUCH better when they headlined their own tour, played all the hits.

Love Havok, but I'd go just for Metal Church. Hope they're touring close by.
