It’s not April 1st and there’s nothing wrong with your web browser. Lars Ulrich is to write liner notes for Megadeth. Get the full story inside!
Dave Mustaine’s former bandmate and buddy/arch nemesis (delete as appropriate) Lars Ulrich it to pen the liner notes for an upcoming reissue of the classic megadeth album, ‘Peace Sells…But Who’s Buying?’
The classic album has been digitally remastered for the first time and expanded for a commemorative 25th-anniversary release in multiple configurations on July 12 by Capitol/EMI.
All of the versions, including a 2CD lift-top box, digital album, and a deluxe 5Disc+3LP box set, include a previously unreleased 1987 concert from the band’s first world tour and new liner notes written by Mustaine and Ulrich.
The deluxe box set also includes previously unreleased and rare mixes of the album’s tracks and hi res audio for the remastered album and concert, as well as an expanded 20-page book, plus 8?x10? photos and reproductions of vintage Megadeth memorabilia.
The cover of the box uses a new, unique process of lenticular 3D which reinterprets the original cover, creating the illusion of Megadeth’s Vic Rattlehead character jumping out of the art.
Sonisphere 2011 will take place at Knebworth on July 8th – 10th and will be headlined by Metallica and the big four, Biffy Clyro and Slipknot with performances also confirmed from Weezer, Limp Bizkit, Architects, Bad Religion, The Mars Volta, Motorhead, Airbourne, Sisters Of Mercy, Opeth, Mastodon, Volbeat, Gallows, Killing Joke, Arch Enemy, In Flames, Parkway Drive, Cavalera Conspiracy and more.
