MEGADETH Drummer Says There Is 'No Truth' To Rumor Band Will Tour U.S. With SLAYER, TESTAMENT

MEGADETH drummer Shawn Drover has refuted rumors that the band will embark on a U.S. tour in February with SLAYER, TESTAMENT and HIGH ON FIRE. Writing on MEGADETH's official forum, Drover, states, "Rumors are just that. [There is] no truth to this [rumor] at all."

SLAYER was forced to postpone its "Canadian Carnage" tour with MEGADETH, which was due to begin on November 8. In addition, the band has cancelled its appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!", which had been set for this Wednesday, November 4.

SLAYER's Tom Araya is currently under the care of a specialist for a back injury, thought to be related to his on-stage activity, and the physician has ordered an immediate surgical procedure, which was to take place in Texas on Tuesday morning (November 3).

MEGADETH will embark on a U.S. tour with MACHINE HEAD and SUICIDE SILENCE starting on November 14 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
