You can now listen to the chat using the SoundCloud widget below.
DEATH DIVISION has been confirmed for this year’s edition of Gigantour, the critically acclaimed package festival founded in 2005 by MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine. Also scheduled to appear on the bill are headliners MEGADETH, along with BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, HELLYEAH, DEVICE and NEWSTED.
DEATH DIVISION is managed by Dave Mustaine‘s son, Justis Mustaine.
In a recent interview with the Colorado Springs, Colorado radio station 94.3 KILO, Mustaine stated about DEATH DIVISION: “One band that I did hear recently that I really liked was the opening band on Gigantour. It’s an unknown band. The bass player from DANZIG and the drummer from MORBID ANGEL formed this band called DEATH DIVISION. And they’re opening up Gigantour. My son manages them and if Tradecraft [Mustaine‘s label imprint] could sign anybody, I would sign them. They’re that good. When I heard them, I said, ‘Well, who’s their label?’ And Justis said they don’t have a label. And I said, ‘Really? Well, you know what? They can open Gigantour if they want to.’ And they’re on it. And the band’s got one of the best guitar players I’ve heard in a very, very, very long time.”
DEATH DIVISION has been working with Carin Cronacher of Hazmat Design (OZZY OSBOURNE, ROB ZOMBIE, ALICE COOPER) on the group’s official logo and artwork.
