MEGADETH's video for their new single, "Die Dead Enough", will debut on MTV2's "Headbanger's Ball" Saturday night (Sept. 11)."Die Dead Enough" comes off MEGADETH's highly anticipated new album, "The System Has Failed", due on September 14 through Sanctuary Records. The CD was recorded at Phase Four studios in Tempe, Arizona and features mainman Dave Mustaine alongside drummer Vinnie Colaiuta and bassist Jimmy Sloas. Additional lead guitar tracks were laid down by former MEGADETH guitarist Chris Poland. In other news, MEGADETH's North American headlining tour in support of "The System Has Failed" is scheduled to kick off October 26 in San Diego, CA. A New York City date is tentatively penciled in for November 10. Support on the tour is expected to come from Los Angeles-based quintet EARSHOT. Other cities that will be covered during the first leg of the tour are San Francisco, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Tucson, Denver, Minneapolis, Chicago, Grand Rapids, Cleveland, Washington, Philadelphia, Boston, Montreal, Toronto, Detroit, Milwaukee and St. Louis. Although there has been no official confirmation on the matter, MEGADETH are hoping to play several European festivals next summer with IRON MAIDEN, Mustaine revealed during an appearance on the "Friday Night Rocks" show on New York's Q104.3 FM Friday night (Sept. 10). "[IRON MAIDEN singer] Bruce [Dickinson] and I are friends and we talked about it and he said that he wanted me to get on it, so I'm looking forward to the possibility of that happening," Dave said. "I've toured with MAIDEN a bunch of times, and I think it would be good for both bands." "The System Has Failed" is MEGADETH's first album since the announcement that Mustaine was disbanding the group following a serious accident in early 2002. At the time, it was unknown if severe nerve damage in his left arm would leave him able to perform again.
