MOTÖRHEAD was forced to cancel a handful of shows on its European festival tour in August after the band’s frontman, Lemmy, suffered a haematoma (where blood collects outside of a blood vessel). The news of Lemmy’s latest medical issue followed reports that he was also recently diagnosed with diabetes and had a defibrillator fitted because of heart problems.
MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine has issued the following audio update at TheLiveLine.com:
“I’m going to be working on the new Will Ferrell movie ‘Land Of The Lost’… and going to be putting some music on that. I went and saw the movie last week and it was hilarious. I loved it. I love Will Ferrell; think he’s hilarious anyways. But, yeah, we’re getting ready to send some music up to these guys right now and you’re listening to some in the background, and then I’ll be heading up there this week to hopefully finish all this off with their guys. And man, how exciting for me.”
“Land Of The Lost” is set to hit theaters on June 5. Check out a trailer below.
On January 7, MEGADETH commenced the recording process for its twelfth studio album at the band’s own Vic’s Garage studio in San Marcos, California. The CD is once again being helmed by acclaimed British producer Andy “Undie” Sneap, who produced MEGADETH’s last album, “United Abominations” (May 2007, Roadrunner Records).
Tentatively due in September via Roadrunner, MEGADETH’s forthcoming LP will be the group’s first with guitarist Chris Broderick, who replaced Glen Drover at the end of 2007.
