Megadeth have announced that their package tour, Gigantour, will return next year, for the first time since 2008. As usual for Gigantour (which last time included In Flames, Children of Bodom, Job for a Cowboy and High On Fire), the lineup includes a cross-section of metal and hard rock. Megadeth will be supported by Motörhead, Volbeat and Lacuna Coil.

The tour will run in early 2012; specific dates will be announced soon.

Megadeth's next studio album, TH1RT3EN, will be released November 1; click here to pre-order it on CD or deluxe double picture disc vinyl. You can hear the first single, "Public Enemy No. 1," on our music page right now, or buy it from iTunes.
