The touring van of Tampa, FL metal outfit Dark Sermon was stolen in Clearwater a mere week before the band's planned touring. States the band about the theft on their Facebook site:
"In the spirit of no good news going unpunished, we are troubled to inform you that we just found out that our van has been stolen. Thankfully, our equipment was not inside and we were not on tour at the time. The missing vehicle is a white 2000 Dodge Ram 3500. The license tag is 839 TEF. It was last seen at US19 and Sunset in Clearwater, FL. We leave for a 2.5 month tour a week from today, as some of you know, so this is a very dire situation. We have filed a police report, and we believe we have security camera footage of the man who took it. If you could please SHARE this post on your Facebook and spread awareness about this incident, we might be able to catch the thief and maybe even get our van back. Any and all posts and help are appreciated more than you know. Thank you to everyone in advance for your support."
After numerous photo and video-teases over the last weeks, it has now been finally made official that Megadeth has hired drummer Chris Adler of Lamb Of God to play on the band's new album.
States Megadeth about the collaboration: "Dave Mustaine, the creative driving force behind original American metal and hard rock crossover giants Megadeth, and Chris Adler, drummer for the leaders of modern American heavy metal Lamb Of God, will join original bassist David Ellefson in the creation of Megadeth's anticipated forthcoming album. Adler will be appearing as a guest on the album and contributing his thundering, hard-hitting, and technically precise style and skill, adding new blood and drive into the mix while staying true to Megadeth's roots."
