MESHUGGAH Guitarist FREDRIK THORDENDAL To Miss MEGADETH Tour; SCAR SYMMETRY's PER NILSSON To Step In

Guitarist Fredrik Thordendal of Swedish experimental extreme metallers MESHUGGAH will sit out the band's summer tour with MEGADETH. His temporary replacement will be SCAR SYMMETRY's Per Nilsson.

A cryptic message on MESHUGGAH's Facebook page offered no specific reason for Fredrik's absence other than he would be out "on a mission to explore some interesting stuff."

MESHUGGAH's run of U.S. dates with MEGADETH will kick off on June 23 in Big Flats, New York and end on July 11 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Also appearing on the bill are TESSERACT and LILLAKE.

MESHUGGAH's latest album, "The Violent Sleep Of Reason", was released last October via Nuclear Blast.

"The Violent Sleep Of Reason" was produced by the band and was engineered by Tue Madsen of Puk Studios in Kaerby, Denmark.

For "The Violent Sleep Of Reason" cover, MESHUGGAH once again enlisted Keerych Luminokaya who created the artwork for "Koloss" and "The Ophidian Trek" as well as the new images for each of the seven albums and three EPs featured in the "25 Years Of Musical Deviance" box set.

So...we had to send our interdimensional Kazoospecialist Dr Thordendal on a mission to explore some interesting stuff....
