You may have just heard that Lamb Of God’s superb offering, VII: Sturm Und Drang, is released later this month (review here). You may also know that Megadeth are releasing their 15th studio album later this year, marking the 30th anniversary of their incredible debut Killing Is My Business… And Business Is Good.
But, did you know that Megadeth and Lamb Of God will be coming to the U.K. and Eire for a co-headline tour in November this year? And if for some bizarre reason that was not good enough, they have Children Of Bodom and Sylosis supporting. This is a show not to miss, sentiments echoed by Mark Morton of Lamb Of God:
“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!”
