“Clash of the Titans” tour reboot rumored to be in the works

Clash of the Titans. Do you remember that tour from the early 90’s? Were you even alive back then? Did you miss it when it happened? Well, now rumors have been floating around that a reboot of this legendary tour will happen next year or so in honor of its 30th anniversary.

However, as indicated by the Facebook page Thrash Metal Family, the rebooted “Clash of the Titans” tour may not include Slayer (who are in the middle of their final world tour) but likely Megadeth and Testament. Other thrash veteran acts, including Kreator, Exodus, Death Angel, Overkill and Anthrax, have been suggested a fill-in for Slayer, while “new school” bands such as Suicidal Angels, Havok and Warbringer have been suggested to open the tour.

There were two lineups of the “Clash of the Titans” tour. The first one took place in Europe in September and October 1990 and it was co-headlined Megadeth and Slayer, and supported by Testament and Suicidal Tendencies. A U.S. leg from 1991 was triple-headlined by Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax and the opening act was none other than Alice in Chains. Megadeth and Slayer actually toured together again back in 2010, co-headlining the “American Carnage” tour, with the first leg supported by Testament and the second by Anthrax.

We’ll keep you updated when details on the rebooted “Clash of the Titans” tour surface!



Suicidal Tendencies to tour with Megadeth again

California crossover thrash/hardcore punk legends Suicidal Tendencies will once again be joining Megadeth as the supporting act of their North American leg of their Dystopia world tour, which will take place in September and October. This will be the second time this year that both bands toured together.

The trek will also be supported by three veteran metal bands Amon Amarth, Metal Church, and Havok. You can find the dates and locations below.

Suicidal Tendencies will release their new album World Gone Mad on September 30th. It will be the band’s first album since 2013’s 13, and their first with Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer) on drums and guitarist Jeff Pogan, who replaced Nico Santora last May.



Suicidal Tendencies to be joined by Dave Lombardo on Megadeth tour

Venice, California crossover thrash/hardcore punk legends Suicidal Tendencies just announced on their Facebook page that former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo will be filling in for Eric Moore on their upcoming U.S. tour with Megadeth, Children of Bodom and Havok. The tour kicks off this Friday (February 26th) in Las Vegas, and the dates/locations can be found below.

For those who don’t know, Lombardo is no stranger to the Suicidal guys. Their friendship with Slayer dates back to the early 80’s; their singer/bassist Tom Araya appeared in the video for “Institutionalized“, and they took Suicidal out on the “Clash of the Titans” tour in Europe in 1990 (along with Megadeth and Testament). Along with his late bandmate Jeff Hanneman, Lombardo played in the short-lived punk rock band Pap Smear with then-Suicidal guitarist Rocky George in the mid-80’s; their songs “Can’t Stand You” and “D.D.A.M.M.” would be re-recorded on Slayer’s 1996 covers album Undisputed Attitude.

Suicidal Tendencies have reportedly been working on new material for their follow-up to 2013’s 13. Frontman Mike Muir recently stated that he hopes the new album will be released soon.
