In celebration of the release of the new ELLEFSON album 'NO COVER', the MEGADETH bass shredder has added some new Texas dates to his tour. 'NO COVER' is scheduled for release on Nov. 20 via Combat Records/Ear Music.
David Ellefson commented: "Like you, we’re all trying to make sense of everything right now. We got offered some shows in Texas with Saliva several months ago, and as things opened back up, we thought if they could be done as safely as possible, for us and our fans, it might be possible to do them. So we decided to try. And with NO COVER coming out in November, we wanted to try and play a few intimate, limited capacity shows around the release, just to get out briefly and say hello."
"So we are excited to announce a handful of NO COVER CD Release events in the Midwest, with The Crowned, in addition to our upcoming TX/LA END OF DAYS shows with Saliva, The Crowned, and A Killer's Confession!!!"
"We have safety plans and protocols in place for capacity, limited interaction meet and greets, etc, and we think we can still have fun, play great shows, and keep everyone safe. These are very intimate club events, some with extremely low capacity, which we are hoping will make it possible for us all to stay as safe as possible and have some fun and semi-normalcy for a night. Trust me, we are just as excited to come see you, as you are to see us."
Musicians accompanying ELLEFSON will be: David Ellefson (bass), Thom Hazaert (vocals), Dave Sharpe (guitar) & Christian F. Lawrence (drums), and Bumblefoot on guitar / backing vocals.
