Megadeth to Begin North American Tour in February with Impressive Support


Megadeth’s Dystopia North American tour will kick off in February, with support from Suicidal Tendencies, Children of Bodom and Havok.

Megadeth, of course, will feature David Ellefson on bass. Suicidal Tendencies now has Michael Morgon handling bass duties following the death of Tim Williams.

The lineup also reveals Megadeth’s longevity — Children of Bodom’s bassist Henkka Sepalla has cited Ellefson as an influence. As for Havok, it will hit the road with a relatively new bassist — Nick Schendzielos (Cephalic Carnage) replaced Mike Leon earlier this year.

Megadeth’s newest album, Dystopia, is set for a Jan. 22 release.
