MEGADETH took part in a funny holiday skit on last night’s (Monday, December 16) episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” in which they debuted their new holiday disc, “Thrashing Through The Snow: A Very Megadeth Christmas”. In addition, they performed the song “Kingmaker” live on the show’s outdoor stage in front of a standing-room-only crowd. Check out video footage below.
MEGADETH’s tour with FEAR FACTORY and NONPOINT kicked off on November 23 in St. Paul, Minnesota.
MEGADETH’s latest album, “Super Collider”, has sold 74,000 copies in the United States since its June 4 release. The CD arrived in stores via MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine’s new label, Tradecraft, distributed by Universal Music Enterprises (UMe).
“I think ‘Super Collider’ is kind of like a really broad [distillation] of what our whole catalog represents,” Mustaine told The Morning Call in a recent interview. “There’s aggressive stuff, there’s thrashy stuff, there’s kind of more of the heavy metal stuff. There are someof the more introspective lyrics. There are some simple lyrics and soon and so forth. I think that’s what really makes the record refreshing is that it shows everything that we’ve done. It’s almost like a biopic of our career. It’s a pretty good slice of everything I’ve learned over the years.”
