See you all this summer - wooooooha!!!!!! -Cliff"

DRY KILL LOGIC have been confirmed as the first band on the second stage of this summer's Gigantour, a six-week festival trek co-headlined by MEGADETH and DREAM THEATER. Other main-stage acts include FEAR FACTORY, DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN and NEVERMORE. Additional artists for the second stage will be announced during the coming weeks. Confirmed dates so far are as follows:
Aug. 23 - Wantagh, NY @ Tommy Hilfiger At Jones Beach Theater
Aug. 24 – Holmdel, NJ @ PNC Bank Arts Center
Gigantour follows MEGADETH's sold-out 2004 "Blackmail The Universe" tour in support of 2004's "The System Has Failed" — MEGADETH's tenth studio album — which debuted on the charts at #18 and was critically hailed as a brilliant return to form. Bandmates Glen Drover (guitar), James MacDonough (bass) and Shawn Drover (drums) will once again join mainman Dave Mustaine on the road.
Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine has posted the following Gigantour update in the "Forums" sections of the band's official web site:
OK, now here is some dirt on the first and second stage: I wanted to have the first stage be powerful and the second stage be a glimpse into the future bands that are either influenced, fans, or friends of mine and Megadeth. I did say that I had 'this band' or 'that band' in my sights, but I have seriously narrowed down the list.
I am still interested in Dry Kill Logic, Overkill, Dead New Day, Re:Ignition, Life Of Agony, Children Of Bodom, The Agony Scene, Diecast, Symphony X, Otep, and believe it or not, Anthrax and Testament. There are a lot more bands still trying to get onboard, but I think I will just have to make a list for next year.
My dilemma is this; the West Coast run will not have The Dillinger Escape Plan on for the first several shows. I am still deciding to either fill that slot or just go on as a four band show for the main stage. I would love to have Anthrax or Overkill on the main stage with us all, but I don't want to offend Anthrax by offering them that slot unless they really want to take it, and I don't know if Overkill are available yet.
After that, there will be more shows at the end of the tour where Dream Theater will have finished and I need to fill that slot (If I do) at that time.
This tour will run from mid-July to mid-September and will also include Texas, Georgia, and Florida this time, as well as another stint across Canada at the end of the tour.
We have been made offers to go to Mexico City and Monterey, Mexico on the Gigantour run; and Santiago, Chile; and Sao Paolo, Brazil in October on our own. I will not go down to South America without playing Argentina or Columbia too, so don't worry. We just have to work out the details.
Please stay tuned so that I can give you more of the official news real soon.
Meanwhile, the first two dates have been announced for Gigantour. Confirmed dates so far are as follows:
08/23 - Wantagh, NY @ Tommy Hilfiger At Jones Beach Theater
08/24 – Holmdel, NJ @ PNC Bank Arts Center
Lead shredder and singer Dave Mustaine of Megadeth is considering several new additions for an upcoming North American tour; including Diecast, Dry Kill Logic, Otep, Overkill, Pain of Salvation, Taproot, and Symphony X.
Megadeth's "Gigantour" is set to begin in late July with Dream Theatre, Fear Factory, Dillinger Escape Plan and Nevermore. Dillinger Escape Plan will join the tour late, according to Mustaine's forum announcement, and the slot is as-of-yet still open. "There are still many more bands to review, and now I am waiting for their music to be sent."
The band also reports a possible Australia visit. Mustaine said, "It may not be with any of the current line-up of other bands, but at least we are starting the preliminary footwork."
A website for the tour -- named after a 1960's cartoon "Gigantor" -- will be launched next month. This six-week trek will likely be the band's final tour under the Megadeth name.
The thrash metal band were founded in 1983 by former Metallica guitarist Dave Mustaine.
Starting 5/1 and running through 6/18, Dry Kill Logic will be replacing Candiria as direct support on the upcoming Jagermeister-sponsored DrowningPool tour. Their first date is in Myrtle Beach at the House of Blues.
It seems Dry Kill Logic has also parted ways with bassist Danny Horboychuk. Here'sis Cliff's statement on that:
"And for the record, we have parted ways with Danny Horboychuk and are THRILLED to announce the addition of Casey Mahoney to the DKL family! Casey spent years in NY- based Downpore; aside from being a dominating bass player he is a tremendous guy, and we are looking forward to bringing him on the road with us to experience first-hand the power and debauchery of DKL on tour! Make sure you all take a minute and say hi to Casey at the shows".

"Hey y’all – Cliff here, writing to you from my sofa as I watch ‘Abbott and Costello in the Foreign Legion’ in a smoky haze. We just got home a few days ago from our latest run of shows, and man what a BLAST! Every show was awesome – we had some great times in Canada, Flint, McHenry, IL, Cleveland, Rochester….thank you EVERYONE for coming out and having a great time with us!

Everyone always asks us about the song ‘Hindsight’ – we are happy to announce that it will be used in the new Teckademics movie ‘Mischief Dynasty V’. Check out the trailer at www.teckademicseast.com!
We’ve also got some new friends onboard - Outer Edge Industries and Xorcist Clothing. Be sure to check out the goods at www.outeredgeindustries.com and www.xorcistclothing.com!
I am sure that I am forgetting some stuff, but that happens. Keep checking back, as I will post stuff as it pops into my head.
I’m out like the bowl…your turn to fire it up!
