Beginning Wednesday, September 6, everyone attending the Gigantour tour will be able to preorder a copy of the forthcoming MEGADETH CD, "United Abominations" (in stores early 2007), exclusively at the FYE booth at all of the venues. Along with your purchase of the new record, you will also receive a hand-numbered, limited-edition MEGADETH lithograph which you get to have signed by the band at the show!To view the lithograph, click here. MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine recently told Gary Graff of Billboard.com that "United Abominations", which he's producing with Jeff Balding, "has a lot of variation on it. It's got some surprises, but there's a really old-school vein to it, I would say." The group has been careful not to rush the album, either, holding sessions in London, Los Angeles and Nashville since earlier this year. "We're taking our time with this one," Mustaine said. "It's a great feeling to make a record and not have our feet held to the fire. One of my heroes growing up was KISS, but they really frustrated me 'cause they would put out a record just about every year. I couldn't figure that out. I pretty much have a cycle of about 18 months to 24 months between records. I just can't put them out any quicker than that and feel comfortable about them."
