Butcher Babies Will Join Megadeth On ‘Dystopia’ North American Tour

Hey there my dear readers, so it wasn’t too long ago that I was discussing the Megadeth tour with you right here on the website and since that time a few things have happened. The first and rather surprising news was that the band Havok was removed from the tour based on differences with the contract about the run of dates. That sucks since I feel Havok is one of the more exciting of the up and coming bands that is out there. The new news is that Butcher Babies is joining onto the tour so if you are a fan of the band this should make you a happy camper and if you’re not…….well. The press details about this are below so dig in. I’ll be back after it all.

The Press Release:
BUTCHER BABIES have announced that they will be hitting the road with the legendary Megadeth this Fall as part of the band’s Dystopia tour in North America.

Speak about their enthusiasm for the upcoming tour, Butcher Babies vocalist Heidi Shepherd states, “We’re incredibly honored to join forces with some of our idols, legendary musicians and bands! Megadeth is a staple in metal music and we can’t think of a better way to round out our 2016 touring schedule than with these metal gods.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Wow is this going to be a loaded to the hilt sort of concert presentation or not? It’s almost like this has become “Gigantour” without really calling it that since there were usually five or six bands playing those if I recall correctly. Personally speaking I don’t know if BB are a proper fit to the grouping of acts but let’s see what happens. I am always interested in seeing things mixed up on the concert stage and what a great catch for the band. Talk about something to stamp in your memory books. So what do you think about this inclusion to the “Dystopia” tour? Let me know in the comments section below. Until next time.
