Suicidal Tendencies, Queensryche + Megadeth Cover Band Added to 2019 Megacruise
In addition to Megadeth tribute act MecaniX — the cover act's inclusion fulfilling a previous promise of frontman Dave Mustaine's — Suicidal Tendencies, Queensryche, Death Angel, Sacred Reich and Toothgrinder will also rock the Mega-boat this October, as pointed out by Metal Hammer. See the full lineup below.
The Megacruise sets sail Oct. 13 from Los Angeles for five days and nights of "heavy metal decadence and debauchery," the band previously noted on their website. Book your VIP or non-VIP stay and fest tickets here.
The Megadeth leader previously hinted at including a Megadeth tribute act on the cruise. He told SiriusXM's Eddie Trunk he wanted to "find a cover band that does Megadeth songs and let people go out there and just sing them."
That much was confirmed in a new official statement from the Megacruise, which revealed that not only will MecaniX be performing onboard, "but they will be part of an amazing event created by the Captain, Dave Mustaine!"
Megadeth's new greatest hits collection — which doesn't include "Peace Sells" — comes out tomorrow, March 22. Yesterday, Mustaine revealed he's written eight of 13 new songs for an upcoming studio album, Megadeth's sixteenth.
