Megadeth begins its first North American tour since 2017.

After five years, Lamb of God released their first new music last week with the single “Checkmate”. This is the first track released from the band’s self-titled eighth studio album that will be out May 8. It is one of the most anticipated and important metal records fo the year.

“The world has never needed heavy metal more than it does today, and top to bottom, this tour delivers,” said Mark Morton, lead guitarist of Lamb of God said. “Lamb of God has toured with and been friends with all of these bands for years, but for all of us to be on the same bill is something extra special. Come early and stay late. This is the metal tour of the year.”

Trivium’s Matt Heafy added, “We are happy to be a part of the biggest real metal tour of the year. This tour is the main event and represents heavy metal and the culture that goes with it.”

“We were honored to be asked to join this package,” said In Flames singer Anders Fridén. “We were actually supposed to take this summer off, but of course we couldn’t say no. After playing shows with all of these guys for years, 2020 is going to feel like a kick-ass reunion. See you on the road, Jesterheads!”
