Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler, who recently laid down the drums on Megadeth’s upcoming studio album, is expected to play as many shows with the the band as his Lamb Of God schedule will allow.
Megadeth’s next album will also be the band’s first to feature Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro, best known for his work with Angra.
During a question-and-answer session at the Comicpalooza international comic convention in Houston, Texas, Megadeth bassist David Ellefson stated about Adler: “Chris is such a fan of Megadeth. Chris playing with Megadeth would be like me joining KISS. We’re, like, his favorite band ever and the band that got him into music. I mean, he’s so humbly appreciative of the opportunity and being part of this. And so, anyway, we’ve talked about shows coming up, [and] Chris was, like, ‘Dude, I’ll move anything I can anywhere to try to make it happen; I just wanna play with Megadeth.’ He may play one show with us and go, ‘That’s it. I’m done. I don’t ever wanna do that again.’ So we’ll find out as it’s coming up. But the goal is Chris would like to play with us as much as possible. And we are still looking to where is the best time to release this new [Megadeth] record, so as we’re looking at some dates coming up, they’re not necessarily predicated on the new album being out. And I guess it’s kind of cool thing with Megadeth — we can play shows and not necessarily have to have a new album to go play those [dates].”
