“The Pit”, the nationally syndicated classic metal radio show hosted by long time hard rock radio DJ Cutter, conducted an interview with MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson when the band played at The Rave/Eagles Club in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on February 12 as part of the Gigantour with MOTÖRHEAD, LACUNA COIL and VOLBEAT.

Gigantour made its highly anticipated return for the first time since 2008. The multi-artist bill kicked off on January 26 in Camden, New Jersey and wrapped on March 3 in Austin.
MEGADETH was among the nominees for the 54th annual Grammy Awards, which was held on February 12 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. The band’s tenth Grammy nomination was for its new single, “Public Enemy No. 1”, off MEGADETH‘s latest album, “TH1RT3EN”, which came out on November 1, 2011.
“Public Enemy No. 1” actually marked the second Grammy nomination for music from “TH1RT3EN”, as the song “Sudden Death” was first unveiled in the 2010 video game “Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock” and received a “Best Metal Performance” nod.
