Kings of Thrash

Megadeth alumni David Ellefson and Jeff Young have announced a tour under the name Kings of Thrash. The band, completed by drummer Fred Aching and guitarist/vocalist Chaz Leon, will perform their former group’s albums Killing is My Business…and Business is Good and So Far, So Good…So What in their entirety. Ex-Megadeth/Ohm guitarist Chris Poland is also slated to join the band for their four-date run.

Dubbed “The MEGA Years” tour, the outing is slated to visit San Diego, Phoenix, Las Vegas, and West Hollywood in October. VIP packages will be available at all shows, with tickets going on sale on July 29th.

Ellefson was dismissed from Megadeth last April and has since revealed two new projects, The Lucid and Dieth. Young was with the band from 1987 to 1989 and was featured on So Far, So Good… So What.
