Chris Adler to tour US with Megadeth

Drummer Chris Adler will tour North America as part of Megadeth in the spring, it’s been confirmed.

He appeared on the band’s 11th album Dystopia as a guest member, and was later invited to join full-time. But he refused, saying: “I love being there, but that’s not where home is.”

He played on the band’s European dates in November, pulling double duties as Lamb Of God performed on the same bill.

His publicist tells Metal Injection: “Earlier this week Megadeth announced North American dates, heading out with Suicidal Tendencies, Children Of Bodom and Havok. Chris Adler will be behind the kit for the entire run.”

The stint begins in Dallas on February 20 and ends on March 24 in Quebec City. Dystopia is released on January 22.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
