MEGADETH To Guest On 'Headbanger's Ball'

MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine is expected to be the featured guest on MTV2's "Headbanger's Ball" airing on Saturday, September 11.

In other news, a spokesperson for MEGADETH has rejected Internet reports that FOZZY has been selected to open for MEGADETH on their upcoming U.S. tour. "FOZZY is just one of the bands MEGADETH is in talks with about opening for the tour," the spokesperson said on Thursday (Sept. 2). "This has in no way been finalized."

MEGADETH's highly anticipated new album, "The System Has Failed", is scheduled for release on September 14 through Sanctuary Records. The CD was recorded at Phase Four studios in Tempe, Arizona and features Mustaine alongside drummer Vinnie Colaiuta and bassist Jimmy Sloas. Additional lead guitar tracks were laid down by former MEGADETH guitarist Chris Poland.

"The System Has Failed" will be 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.
