MEGADETH: New Audio Interview With JAMES LOMENZO Available

DJ Johnnie Walker recently conducted an interview with MEGADETH bassist James Lomenzo. The chat can now be streamed using the audio player below.

The much-anticipated American Carnage tour, featuring thrash metal behemoths MEGADETH, SLAYER and TESTAMENT, has been put on hold due to health issues. SLAYER's bassist/vocalist Tom Araya is in need of back surgery which cannot be postponed.

While disappointed by the tour's delay, MEGADETH "is concerned for Araya and wish[es] him a speedy recovery," according to a statement released by the band's record label, Roadrunner Records.

MEGADETH is currently scheduling a U.S. headline run for March and April, and hopes to reschedule the American Carnage tour for this summer.

Anyone who has purchased an American Carnage ticket should hold on to it until further notice.

MEGADETH's new album, "Endgame", has sold 112,000 copies in the United States since its September 2009 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The CD was recorded at MEGADETH's brand new, self-built studio in San Marcos, California — Vic's Garage — which was named after the legendary and iconic Vic Rattlehead character. The album was helmed by MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine and British producer Andy Sneap (EXODUS, NEVERMORE, ARCH ENEMY, MACHINE HEAD).
