Megadeth and Lamb of God have collaborated on a new recording of Megadeth’s classic “Wake Up Dead” to kickstart the 2022 leg of the bands’ joint Metal Tour of the Year with Trivium and In Flames.
The trek picks back up with over 25 new North American dates that begin this month.
Megadeth’s original “Wake Up Dead” appears on the “Big 4” metal group’s 1986 album, Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying? The new version finds Megadeth leader Dave Mustaine trading off vocals with Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe while Lamb of God provide accompaniment. The track premiered this week on Sirius XM’s Liquid Metal with host Jose Mangin.
This summer, Megadeth plan to release their long-awaited 16th studio album, The Sick, the Dying… and the Dead! Mustaine shared the title last year after the band parted ways with bassist David Ellefson amid a sex scandal involving the musician. His parts on the album were said to be replaced by Testament member Steve Di Giorgio. James LoMenzo took his spot on the Metal Tour of the Year 2021.
