The metal heavyweights in Megadeth have today announced that they will be touring the U.K. in June of this year. They will play headline shows in Newcastle, Glasgow, Manchester, and London. Tickets go on sale at 9 AM on Friday, February 15th, and are available from this location.

Currently working in the studio in San Diego on a 14th studio album titled "Super Collider," Dave Mustaine, along with bassist Dave Ellefson, drummer Shawn Drover, and guitarist Chris Broderick, are looking forward to its release in June 2013. Megadeth’s "Super Collider" is the first release through Mustaine’s new label, Tradecraft, through UMe.

“It was a real thrill for us to learn there was an opportunity to join Universal,” said Mustaine during a break in the sessions. “It seems like every time you see a great band or music video, it comes from the Universal label. Being with Universal is by far the most exciting and prestigious home for Megadeth ever! We are electrified with what the future holds and the possibilities such a powerhouse like Universal will bring for us all. We have worked with some great people over the years, and it is amazing to see so many of them on the Universal team for our new record, Super Collider. If Megadeth being here isn’t satiating enough, having Tradecraft as my own label is going to be really amazing for metal bands around the world.”

Mustaine added, “Shawn, Chris and David have all been feverishly contributing some great music and I believe we are doing our best work ever together in the studio right now!”

“Megadeth is not just one of the most successful metal bands, but one of the most influential rock bands of the past 30 years,” said UMe President/CEO Bruce Resnikoff in making the announcement. “They continue to be a huge draw on the road with their longtime fans as well as continually adding new fans. I look forward to working together with them.”

"Super Collider"... The sound of my head repeatedly "colliding" with a galvanized metal Stop sign would be more musical, more metal, and more "super". There's probably better symbolism going on too.

Not as bad as I feared...I mean, it sounds kinda badass, but only in that Steel Panther, we're-kinda-joking kinda way. Alas, at least it wasn't FOURTEEN...and for some reason, I can't WAIT to see the cover art.
