Dave Mustaine, Megadeth frontman ahs posted the following update on the official Megadeth website:
“I am starting the pack for the road and really look forward to playing in the States for you again [as part of the HEAVEN AND HELL tour with MACHINE HEAD]. I know that the boys are packing and pacing back and forth too right now, and we can probably all count the hours before we take the stage again.
“This segment of the tour 'promises' to allow more time for us to play to you, so those of you who saw the Canadian leg, and had concerns about our set-length can 'come on down' and join us if you missed us. Also, as some of you have seen on Megadeth.com and myspace/megadeth, we have a new and beautiful video with Cristina Scabbia [LACUNA COIL] for 'A Tout Le Monde' and I hope you like it. We are happy with it, and this all came out of an idea to re-do this for a 'b-side for Japan.' And while the title change was not my idea, believe me, being able to see a label excited is nice.
“And now it is time to get serious about this record. We are doing some final maneuvers with our last stretch of promotion before the release, and I have been busy on the old 'dog and bone' with Andy Sneap working on our edit for the single 'Washington Is Next!'
“Ah, the inner workings of the guessing games we have to play.”
