Megadeth leader Dave Mustaine reveals US tour plans

Megadeth leader Dave Mustaine has revealed the timing of a US tour in support of the group’s forthcoming project, “Dystopia.”

"We're not gonna be heading back into the States until February of '16, I think, is when we start the U.S. tour,” Mustaine told fans during a Periscope session on October 31. “And we've got a pretty interesting lineup. I'm sure you guys are gonna be stoked. I can't say anything yet until it's confirmed. But it looks like everybody's gonna be accepting the tour. And it'll be four of us."

The 2016 US tour will sync up with the January 22 release of their 15th album, which marks the debut of new guitarist Kiko Loureiro and guest drummer Chris Adler from Lamb Of God following last fall’s departure of Chris Broderick and Shawn Drover.

The follow-up to 2013’s “Super Collider” was recorded in Nashville, TN earlier this year.

Megadeth are previwing the project with the lead single, “Fatal Illusion.”

Last month, Megadeth launched a world tour with shows in China, Japan, Australia and India, and will begin a European run in Moscow, Russia on November 4.
